Living A Lie

I'm "growing up" and finding that I've been living a lie. Who I was...to my parents..and friends...wasn't really me. It's time for me to be who I really am and want to be. I'm done being what other people want me to be. I want to better myself for my own reasons...choose my own career because I love it...not because it will make money, or look good to other people, or make other people feel good...I feel wonderful now that I've started to accept myself and feel more comfortable being myself around everyone. Being myself doesn't mean that I'm rude, unfriendly, or disrespectful...but that I take more time to evaluate how I really feel about important things and I make decisions based on what I want instead of trying to please others.

And you're finding this out at a very young age.... good for you! Just keep going down this path!

Thanks *Big long hug back to you* I'm still a work in progress, but at least there's progress :)

Good to hear you're standing up for yourself! We're alike, me and you. I also recently discovered myself.<br />
