Just be. Be yourself. Do not be anything other than yourself for others. Others may see through you or only accept you when you are pretending to be something other than what you really are. Just being takes the weight off your shoulders. You do not have to get up on the stage and mouth all the words and speak the party line. You are free to be and if you are seen as odd, it is only because others do not have the wisdom to understand you or see the genuine. Their eyes are fixed on the contrived; on what really isn’t but is more pleasing to them.
