A dear friend reminded me today of how good it is to stay true to yourself and to rejoice in what makes you you. That’s not saying that there’s never room for improvement. Everyone has room for improvement. Everyone. Really. It’s so easy to want to change for others so that they will like you more or accept you into their fold. But the truth is, if they can’t deal with the real you, then they don’t need to deal with you at all.
How wonderful it is that no two people are alike? How boring would the world be if we all had the same propensities? And how sad a world it would be if we couldn’t accept and love people for who they are, whether they are ‘perfect’ or not.
