“Don’t compromise yourself. You are all you’ve got.”
– Janis Joplin
A simple quote but definitely one to remember. In today’s social-media-dominated world, it is very easy to lose oneself; to mould oneself to the likes of others. That is where this quote steps in and warns you against it.
Don’t change yourself just for the sake of fitting in. Don’t allow yourself to change so much for others that you eventually lose your sense of self.
When you’re tempted to make fundamental changes in yourself because of somebody else, you’ve got a problem to deal with. However, changing yourself for your own good is a different thing.
Here is to being me.
Here is to being us.
