You can try to fit in. Try not to say or do anything that might cause others not to like you. You can live in fear. Or you can be yourself. Since both take a lot of effort, which should you choose?
At the end of the day, if you’ve done your best to be true to yourself, at least you know who you are. It’s not easy, but it’s a good thing, this knowing who you are. Be confident that you know what’s right, especially what’s right for you. And don’t let other people treat you like shit just because they hold some kind of power over you. My power belongs to me, and only me, thank you very much.
