Some people want to blend in instead of stand out, because if they blend in, people will not notice them to make fun of them or criticise them.
But the truth is, there is someone out there who wants you precisely for who you are and what you have to offer. You must not have to be all smart or "a jack of all trade, or a tall dark and handsome guy or be a six feet model to become who you have been designed to be. All you have to be is genuine- and figure out the stuff you are made of!
To be honest and from live's experience, the moment you start being someone else, you start inviting the wrong person(s) into your life. How terrible that is! It is better to be yourself and take it one step at a time in your own unique way than be someone else with the wrong set of people. It might be all fun at the beginning, but you will definitely get hit! And sometimes the victims get to have a second chance, while some never get to have a second chance to become who they really were created to be, or even tell their stories.
It is so easy and "no stress" at all to be yourself! Trust me.
