If I could give one piece of advice it would be for everybody and it would be this: Be yourself, be yourself, be yourself! I said it three times and that's still not enough! I know people say this all the time but too often they are people who are really not being themselves! so "be yourself" has kinda lost its meaning but that only makes it more important! Be yourself! For real. Not the person you think people want you to be (you're probably wrong anyway!) Not the person you'd like to be (you can work on that tomorrow!) The person you really are deep down. Stop everything else and work on finding out who that is. Then be that, own it, and find people who will love it! 'Cos guess what, nobody else can be you!
Also if it ever gets hard (and it might -people get scared of people who have their own mind!) remember this!
"It is better to be hated for what you are than loved for what you are not." - André Gide
"You see Harold, I feel that much of the world's sorrow comes from people who are this…
…yet allow themselves to be treated as that…"
