People are attracted to uniqueness. It’s good to be different, but always be yourself. Your personality is very unique, and it is what other people see when they interact with you. Great things can happen when you set yourself up to be noticed in the right ways. Often people will describe people based on their personality, which shows how unique it is. Be the best “you” that you can be. It’s amazing how many people try to stand out by being something they’re not.
When you stop trying to conform, you free up a lot of energy. Use that energy to experiment, to follow your curiosity, to trust your gut and face your fears. It may feel like a risky path, but it’s less risky than being buried in mediocrity because you sound like everyone else.
Your experiences throughout your entire life, as well as your day to day experiences, are what make you the unique person you are today. If you’re lucky enough to be different, don’t ever change.
Insist on yourself; never imitate… Every great man [and woman!] is unique. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson ~
All my life I had been looking for something, and everywhere I turned someone tried to tell me what it was. I accepted their answers too, though they were often in contradiction and even self-contradictory. I was naïve. I was looking for myself and asking everyone except myself questions which I, and only I, could answer. It took me a long time and much painful boomeranging of my expectations to achieve a realization everyone else appears to have been born with: that I am nobody but myself. ~ Ralph Ellison, “Battle Royal” ~
