Just Being You
Being true to ourselves can be so hard in today’s world. There are so many expectations from our family, our friends and from society as a whole. At times, it can be difficult to even know who we truly are and what we want because we are trying so hard to “fit in.” Wouldn’t it be nicer to find people and places where we belong? I saw this statement, “fitting in is when you want to be part of something and belonging is when people want you just as you are.” Take the time to reflect and discover your true passions, your strengths and your dreams. Dig deeper and ask “Why is this important?” to ensure that it is your dream and not someone else’s. Then set out on a journey to find those groups where you can belong. It takes courage to take action and make decisions that go against what others expect from us.
