So over my years of being in school and going through everyday life I have noticed something that saddens me quite a bit to be honest. That would be people not being true to themselves and to who they are as a person. I see so many people daily that try so hard to alter who they are as a person just to get that one person in school to like them or to fit into that one click of popular kids. Its upsetting to see this really. The way I see it, if you feel that you have to go to such lengths to change who you are and even make yourself a little unhappy to get someone to like you or to be accepted in a group then they aren't worth your time. Here is one of my favorite quotes that goes well with this.

"Don't chase people.
Be yourself, do your own thing and work hard.

The right people... the ones who really belong in your life, will come to you. And stay."
-Will Smith


Just be yourself and let those people that are worth being in your life come to you. Never should you have to change who you are for someone who cant accept you the way you are. But this also starts with loving who you are and being proud of who you are. Never be ashamed of who you are either. Your all unique and amazing in your own way and you should be proud of it!

I just wanted to put my thoughts out there on this and maybe see what some of you thought or maybe see some of the situations you have been in or seen.

And remember, Love yourself and be proud of who you are. You are YOUnique!

am always true to myself. mainly because i've always found it hard to be somebody else. because i'm introverted... i always have to be true to myself--it's more important to me than anything else.

the cons of that is that i wont make as many friends or have as many job opportunities.

the pros is that i'm happy... and that's what matters. i can't imagine myself pretending to be someone else for years and years... i can't do that. i feel really imprisoned if i can't be who i am... and i don't like keeping secrets. i like to speak my mind.

What if we are assholes? Should we still be ourselves?

Thanks Zachary for the great post. I think you understand one of the greatest truths in life. I am still on the journey of unveiling myself to the world but it's hard sometimes, especially when you think a little different.
Thanks again and take care my friend.

Being happy is one of the most important things in life! And not making as many friends is definitely not a con quality over quantity!

This is a pretty childish/naive way of looking at things.

Your post just seems like a douche-y way of trying to score "good guy" points.
