You're Only You Once

From an early age in life we are often reminded to be ourselves. The problem with the that is as we grow older we start to lose track of who we are and start to conform into something or someone we're not. When we reach that critical stage of being a teenager, being ourselves often goes out the window. So instead of being ourselves, our main focus is to be The Jock, The Brain, The Popular Kid etc. Now don't get me wrong it's great if you love sports or if grades are your main focus or even if you are genuinely friends with everyone. That's great ! Amazing even. That's not where the problem comes in.The problem comes in when you know within yourself that you're trying to be someone you're not. Especially when the sole cause is to impress someone else. As cliche as it may be life is too short, so why spend it being someone other than you. So I'll leave you with this, You're Only You Once, so why not be the best You that You can be.
