Don't let other people tell you how you should be - be yourself!
It is so easy to think that you 'ought' to be a certain way, think a certain thing, dress in a particular style. But who sets that 'ought'? Where is the pressure coming from?
You were made to be you.
I've been re-reading Present Over Perfect by Shauna Niequist. In one chapter she talks about how, in Job, the snow is told to fall and the rain to hammer down. It does what it is made to do and nothing more is asked of it. And it is the same with us. We are made a particular way and we need to be ourselves to live in the sweet spot.
Be who you were made to be.
Be yourself, no matter what everyone else is doing. After all, you're not everyone else. You're you.
