Conformity is not a bad thing but we have to recognize and appreciate differences and diversity as well. What are the things that make you who you are? What are your strengths? Your weaknesses? Your goals? Your belief system? Those things makes us uniquely wonderful.
Knowing oneself is a journey. We navigate life in different ways and we each have our timeline. You are doing the best that you can and I hope you know that.
Accepting ourselves is a different kind of courage and challenge. It's easy to look at ourselves and see the bad things. While there is a dark side to each of us, I hope that you also recognize the good ones. We are not static beings. We are constantly learning and growing.
You are more than meets the eye. Your existence is irreplaceable. Remember that.
