I want to be like you, to laugh and do what you do because I want to know how you feel. I want to giggle one more time, reacting to your hand hitting me on my thigh. How delighted were you. I just want to be like you, to be beautiful just like you truly are.

For so long, I always knew that I was different and one of a kind. You could never compare me to anyone. As I got older I got to see my differences grow and grow, showing me who I really am and I discovered who I really am, why I’m the way I am. Such delightful moments. From there on, I never thought I would see myself like anybody else. I discovered I was me for a reason and that my life was my life for a reason.

The older you get the more you realize that you were never wrong from the first place for being you. And that it makes no difference, it doesn’t make you less of a person.

It is either you’re you and you’re making yourself happy or you’re making other people happy. Even if you change for others it will never make a difference. You never have to change yourself to fit in, trust me, you’ll realize that you’re wasting your time for no reason.

But if you’re yourself you could even meet people who are like you. But if you don’t, there is nothing wrong with just being by yourself. Embrace the way you are, that’s what’s beautiful about people who are different.

I told myself to be myself, to make myself happy and accept myself the way I am. I told myself that I won’t change myself. So just accept yourself the way you are and be yourself, it will help gain peace as well.

I wish you nothing but peace as you go on your journey to accepting yourself the way you are; you’re beautiful the way you are.
