Always Be You!

Hi there,

So.. I was planning on making a post about my presidential pick and at the end of that blog post, I decided to make a post about Individuality. Keep in mind that this is not a Wizard101 or Pirate101 related post - but I would like my readers to read this post.

You Are This, Not This

I'm sure a few of you have heard something like the words in blue in your life. I won't lie, this year has been something like those blue words for me. I've never really experienced this in real life or online, but this year has been it for me. Just like you, many people experience these same words in blue. The question is, if you are who you are, do you accept this? Would you pretend to be something that you're not to please somebody? The true question is, would you be happy pretending to be something you're not?

"I want to be a Computer Programmer, but instead, I have to be a Doctor"

Pretend that you want to go to school to be a computer programmer. You've ALWAYS wanted to be one since playing a video game during your childhood and was very interested in seeing how this video game was coded. Once you graduate high school, you decide to go to the college and sign up to be a Computer Programmer major. WAIT. YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED. You can no longer be a programmer because somebody else wants you to be a Doctor instead. You've spent most of your life wanting to be this awesome programmer, but somebody has told you that they want you to be a doctor instead. 

Which Path Would You Take?

The Doctor: You decide to choose the path that this person has chosen for you. You go to school and pass all of your classes but you're not happy. You always think of who you want to be and who somebody else wants you to be and that makes you sad. The sadness will not take over your life, but you will always think of what or who you always wanted to be. The people who told you to be a Doctor are happy, but you are not happy.


The Programmer: You know who you are and you decide to become that programmer that you always wanted to be. You tell the person that told you to be a doctor how much this means to you and that they don't have to like it but you do. That's what matters in the end. You are who you want to be and that's what matters. We truly do live once and being who you want to be on this earth as long as you're a good person. This doesn't mean you have to show any anger with somebody that doesn't accept who you want to be, you should be happy for who you want to be. That's what matters in the end. Nobody has to accept who you are for you to be happy. You have to accept who you are to be happy. If you want to be that Programmer, you should! If you want to be who you want to be, you should! This might be a better path for both of you or for one of you. You'll be happy and at the end of the day, that's what counts. Keep in mind that showing Anger will not only hurt you but will also hurt the other person. Maybe they were not allowed to be who they wanted and just want what they think is the best for you. This does not mean you're not allowed to do what you feel is right. If you know something is wrong - Drugs, Hanging out with the wrong Crowd, Bullying, etc. - you should always listen to somebody trying to warn you because this is not right. You will know what is right and wrong.

I promise I was not told to become a Doctor. I actually want to become a Programmer. This was just an analogy to help you realize that you should be who you want to be no matter what people say. You might lose friends for being who you want to be. Does that matter? Well, you might be sad because you lose people that you thought would stick by your side no matter what. They have chosen to be upset about who you want to be. You have chosen to embrace who you want to be and in return, YOU will be happy! Everything is a choice, including happiness. If you choose to be sad, you will be sad. IF you choose to be happy? You'll be happy. :) Continue being you no matter what anyone says! BE HAPPY! No matter who you are. This is for every single person on this earth whether they're reading this post or not.

Nice article. Very thoughtful.
I am not from United States or any other country in Europe or America so I have not seen the blue words that you refer to at start of the article. I however, have seen/heard similar words here too so I can relate to the gist of your article.
