Be yourself–no matter what.  Even when it’s tempting to pretend or minimize who you are–still be yourself.  When no one understands–be yourself.  When you are different and it really stands out–be yourself.  It’s not bad when people reject you.  It’s only bad when you reject yourself.  So just be yourself.  Others can’t meet you if you don’t let them see who you really are.
