Today I was reminded of what I was like two years ago. And you know what? In some ways, I haven’t changed at all. I’m still moody as hell, say what I think, am brutally honest and don’t hide my emotions. Sure, I know how to lie and to hide my true feelings when needed, but other than that, I’m a real person. I don’t hide behind a mask of coolness or popularity.
I’m keeping it real, like Eminem would say.
Maybe it’s bad that I haven’t changed that much in the last couple of years but to me it seems like a won battle. I’ve stayed true to myself, to my personality and didn’t waver when people started to doubt me. I think somehow that’s the real challenge in life: to be yourself in spite of all the obstacles, despite the people who want you to be something you’re not and besides the fact that not everyone is going to like you exactly the way you are. Be yourself even when the world tells you otherwise. To me, that’s the real challenge everyone of us is facing every day.
