The world needs the authentic you. In fact, the world would be a better place if everyone were their authentic self. So go ahead, fly your freak flag, as they say. Be the real you, even if you worry that you won’t fit in. Being the real you serves as an example to others that they can be their real selves as well. The bonus will be the extra time you have when you no longer have to spend time trying to be something that you’re not.
