Are you a misfit?

authentic, true self

[styled_box]”Here’s to the crazy ones.  The misfits.  The rebels.  The troublemakers.  The round pegs in the square holes.  The ones who see things differently.  They’re not fond of rules.  And they have no respect for the status quo.  You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them.  About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them.  Because they change things.  They push the human race forward.  And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius.  Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.” ~ Apple Inc.[/styled_box]

It’s so easy to get discouraged and feel like a “misfit” when you’re living an authentic life and being your true self.  You may endure criticism and judgment from others, but keep in mind that even those that live their life following others, trying to fit it to social norms and cultural rules endure criticism and judgment.

Follow your dreams, follow your heart, be your authentic true self.  Apple’s quote above says it all.  Those that are crazy enough to thing they can change the world are the ones that do it!  Start by being the change you wish to see in the world.  It doesn’t matter what other people think, say or do – the most important person you need to be able to look in the eye is yourself!

When you succeed at being happy as your true self others, especially those that criticized you along the way will wish they had supported you, they may want to be back in your life and they may just admit that they shouldn’t have acted the way they did, but the most important thing is that you’ll know you did what was right for you!
