Show Them Who You Are.
In the history of the world, there has never been another human being just like you, and after you have passed on, there will never be another 'you' to come. You are special, but so is everyone else. Be kind to all.
Because you are unique, the world has no idea who you are until you show them. They can guess, and they will try to force you to fit into a box with a little handle that makes you easy to carry and trot out whenever they need you to do something that suits 'them,' but YOU are best served by living truthfully and rejecting anything that is incongruous with, not what you believe to be true according to your intellect, but incongruous with what you know to be true in your spirit.
The world has no idea what to do with you because the world has never seen anything like you before. don't blame the world for its ignorance, we are all ignorant of a great many things, and we do what we know to do. When we know better, we do better.
Know this: If you count on others to tell you who you are, you will only ever become what others allow you to be. You will never grow in to the fullness of whomever you were meant to be, and the world will never receive the gifts that only you can provide.
Also know this: No matter what decisions you've made or been subject to before this moment, as long as you breathe, you can choose your next move. Equipped with that knowledge, decide today:
Who will you become?
