I Stand Out

I once heard that you tend to act like the situations that surround you. I think that your character is truely revealed in how we act. When you find yourself in a new situation, the way in which you respond is what makes you YOU. I may not act the way that “pleases you”, but I am acting and responding in a way in which I think I should. If I regret this later, that is what I have to live with, not you. So you let me live my life and make my own mistakes and I’ll let you live yours. You critize me, and that’s fine…but I won’t be changing anytime soon.
You might think I’m crazy, but that’s just who I am. You don’t know what I’m going through and you might think I’m a little crazy, but if I wasn’t who i was, I bet you wouldn’t respect me. When you stand up for what you believe, you are making a difference and people are going to notice. But when you drift into the corner and act like a picture-perfect copy of everyone else, why should you stand out?
Don’t apologize for who you are-I learned that the hard way. After years of abusing myself mentally, I finally have learned that I will never become a better person if I am constantly putting myself down. Just like making yourself better helps cut down on critizing others, the same is true of yourself. Stop pulling yourself down and start pushing yourself up! You are amazing and you need to show the world!
