It’s not always easy, when you feel like you’re constantly swimming against the current. When you’re on the outside. You end up exhausted and beaten down. Whether it’s because you’re forced to do so, or just because you feel like you don’t have any other choice. Yet for some reason you continue to do so. It would be so easy to just give in and go with the flow. To follow someone else. To take the easy route. To give up. But you don’t, because that’s not you. You are so much more. So much more strong, independent, and courageous. Don’t get me wrong, like I said, it’s not always easy. But it’s who you are. It’s okay to be different, to be yourself. But just remember it doesn’t hurt to let others in sometimes, or to be that person to be let in.

Do you ever feel that you have to go against the flow?
