There’s nothing more painful than being yourself.
It’s easy to be an imitation of others. They already provided you a map and instruction. All you have to do is follow it.
It’s harder to be yourself because you have no idea who you are. You have to dig into yourself, into the influences and thoughts of others that injected into the your very being to find it. And they come in fragments, which gives you another job of piecing them together.
But it’s better and more worth it. Because nobody is just like you.
