being yourself

It's so...incredibly important.

As I am preparing to...venture into the adult world (HA), I am beginning to recognize how vital it truly is to be yourself.

It's totally cliche, and we've all heard it way too many times, but seriously? Who else can you be if not yourself?

How are people supposed to get to know you if you don't know yourself? Or if you pretend to be something else?

Ah. The anticipation of college and meeting new people.

THE RELATIONSHIPS THAT COULD PERMANENTLY CHANGE MY LIFE. (But seriously.)

A'hem.

Also, you want to know something else?

Being yourself is a trend right now. Oxymoronic, right? A trend means lots of people are doing it, correct? Like this new, "I AM NOT CONFORMING TO YOUR NORMS: FASHION, SOCIETY, OR POLITICS. I WILL BE DIFFERENT."

It's ok to be different. It's just interesting to me when people are different simply for the sake of it. You should believe in your differences. It shouldn't be a show, or something to gain attention with. It should be something that you, as an individual human being, want to do. Conforming to non-conformity is just plain silly.

This post is neither eloquent nor very uplifting, but I felt I needed to say it. Thoughts?
