Lately I've been trying to listen to others' opinions; taking their advice in how I act, how I dress, how I eat, how I exist. But of all their words, the best advice was given by a dear friend: you'll never be comfortable or confident if you aren't being yourself.

I do know who I am. I am sure of what I like, I know what makes me feel confident. I wonder why I should go against my own instinct. When it comes down to it, I can pretend for others' sakes, but I don't want to be someone else. I want to be me.

I am lucky to know myself; most people don't ever have that. I will be careful never to lose it.
