Iv'e always wondered why I hated being told " Be Yourself " I always wanted to know why it was so hard to understand that simple demand. But then I realized it's because I didn't know who myself was....Honestly what teenager does? Nobody cares about being yourself anymore. It's all ba
sed on looks and who you associate with. After 6th grade until where I am now iv'e been someone im not I always thought that I would just magically adapt into this person that I so badly wanted to be but found it so hard to be able to be. I'm was worried what people will think, seriously what person isn't? Now that I was finally able to change myself into the person I wanted to be, even though it felt almost impossible because iv'e been hiding under la yers of other people's personalities. I finally managed! People are so cruel now, and sometimes you wonder if it's truly who they are or if it's just an act like you. Iv'e done a lot of things i'm not proud of things that maybe I even regret, but they are in the past and the future is right in front of me all i had to do is reach out and take a grip on my life instead of letting other people do it for me. Which I have done, i'm now a totally different person who has friends of all different types, friends I know will stick by me. I have a loving family who cares a lot about me and who helped me reach the point where i am now. I'm starting to finally realize who I really am and can see what's actually in front of me, and even though i went through hell to get here. I'm here and I couldn't be happier. So this is for anyone out there who was in the situation I was in, if you feel lost and under pressure, if you think your stuck and there's no way out....I promise there is just take chances and I promise you will love the feeling of being yourself and not what other people want you to be.
