To Be Yourself

One thing I'm proud of is always being myself in every situation. I will never give up or change who I am under any circumstance. I had a job interview today and before I was going, people were telling me to "be bubbly and outgoing," "dress nice," "kiss up" and to "put cover up on my insanely sunburnt nose."

I replied, "I will be myself. I will not hide any part of me. And if they don't like it, that's okay. At least I didn't give up who I am just to get somewhere in life." (I ended up getting the job, by the way.)

I've lived by that philosophy literally my entire life. I've lost things from it. But I've also gained a lot from it. I am happiest while being myself and I do not care how the world reacts to it. I am infinitely unique...and I wouldn't trade that for the world.
