Those who matter don’t mind

January 29, 2011

Seems like this should be easy, no?

But sometimes, there’s pressure to be something we aren’t.

Sometimes, it takes courage just to be ourselves.
To not conform to someone’s idea
of who we should be.

That’s not been my experience of life,
but I am well aware that it is for many.
Life is certainly a lot easier if we conform.

I always have taken heart in Dr. Seuss’ analysis:

Very wise, he is.
