“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”
Courage is a whisper, it’s a quiet voice encouraging to put your best foot forward when you’re ready to give up. Courage doesn’t mean the absence of fear it means you have learned to control your fears instead of them controlling you. Things may not always turn out the way you want them to, even the best people fall down but they get up and make the best of out of their situation.
In a world filled with people wishing to be someone else:
Control the fear of not being accepted by the masses
Gather the courage to be your self.
Accept your imperfection by rejecting social conformity.
Spend time with people who you don’t need to impress, people that make you smile, these are the ones who will give you lasting memories and boost your confidence.
There are always be people who will try to discredit you or tell you’re not good enough. Remember not everyone thinks outside their own limited boundaries, don’t let them pull you into their limited circle. Dare to be different, dare to think outside the limited boundaries of those who are still being controlled by their fears.
