"To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment"
{Ralph Waldo Emerson}

In a world full of social norms and the pressure to conform, it's difficult for one to be yourself. What does it even mean to be yourself anymore these days? How do you discover who your true self is? Being someone who prides herself on being adamant on always holding true to herself and never compromising who I am for others, I still know that I have my true self and my other self. You will inevitably always find yourself in the company of those who you just can't seem to be yourself with -- people that you know will never get you, people who you would never otherwise organically be friends with. Often times you will find yourself in the situation where you are the odd man out, but even then, I encourage you to stand firm. It's never worth it to become someone you aren't simply for recognition or acceptance. I wholly believe that each person has their own niche in life -- a niche where they will discover what they're meant to do, a niche where they will meet the people who they belong to be around, a niche that allows them to be nothing short of their true self. Being yourself is a beautiful thing, so don't let anyone rain on your parade.
