I love who I am, don't try to change me, don't measure me on your own scale of perfection. Don't get me wrong...
Don't become someone else because someone close does not like your kind of person. It is who you are, embrace it and make the best of it.
Whatever your answer is/was, know that it is more of a journey than a destination. You will have to keep reinventing yourself to stay true to your dreams. As long as there is life, there would always be reasons to stay relevant. It is your story, you are the star, you are the writer and you are the director...you can always make the end you desire!
God didn't spend all that time creating you, only for you to amount to nothing. He created you for a reason and that makes you special.
