It’s much easier to be like everyone else.
Deep down we believe
- Other people’s lives are better than ours (so we copy them)
- We are inadequate (compared to who we thought we’d become)
- If we show our true colours, we’ll be spurned and ridiculed (and die lonely and unloved)
But you are so much more than a copy of everyone else, dear friend.
It’s what makes you different. Not less.
