Do you

Ever have a friend give you the one raised eye brow look? Also known as the "what in the world are you doing? You're a goof" look. I've received it many a time, but I've also given it. We might not always understand one another, and we usually all experience moments of embarrassment when others don't follow our train of thought. Thing is, we're all completely different people, so there will be times when we don't see everything eye to eye. That is ok. Cause hun, just do you.

It's so tiring trying to worry about what others think of you, or trying to keep yourself in a "socially acceptable" box. Who gives a hoot? If we're being honest, it's not like society's standards are all that great nowadays. Plus, while it is a problem that everyone is so concerned about how the world perceives them, maybe that fact can help you begin to loosen up. If everyone is concerned about how they come off, they probably aren't focusing on you. Not that you aren't important or worth being focused on (because you are!), but relax, because most people are in the same boat as you.

Let me tell you, it is so freeing and so much fun to just be who you are. God didn't mess up, so don't worry about other people thinking you're messed up. Now, I suppose I ought to provide a check to all this advice. While you should be who you are, don't take this to mean you shouldn't seek to improve and grow. We all have things we can work on, so be you, but also look to be the best you that you can be! At the end of the day though, just do you :)
