I think people should be who they are. I know people that try to be someone else other than who they really are. Life is to short to spend your vaulable time pretending to be someone or something you are not. Just be real people be real....

The world would be boring if we were all the same. We need variety and if everyone tried to be like everyone else (and succeeded), the world would be hair ripping out, boring! There'd be no fame, because everyone would be the same. There'd be no new ideas because everyone thought the same. There'd be no admiration for each other, because we'd all have what everyone else had! People need to realize that their individuality is what makes them special, unique, interesting, and valuable. When you're just like someone else, you're nothing special.

I agree with you. Why copy when you can be original right? Even if people cant understand the real you, what matter is you express who you are and what you love to do. At the end of the day, you can sleep well because you showed the world who you are and what are you made of. I am extremely mad to the people who are misunderstanding the action of others. I mean you should learn to understand others before others may understand you also. Disagreement between two parties is just normal as long as both of you can understand the point of others, not to the extent of persuading others to understand and taking your point

I know just what you mean. Takes too much time to do things that aren't productive to life. I agree 100% with that. I know many who live in a fantasy world thinking that prince charming will come along and sweep them off their feet.

this is very very true , one must stay real and must be confident with one skin . pretending doesn't make anyone happy, it will just masked up their real feeling and i think pretenders are not living a happy life

You most certainly speak the truth here! there is nothing more precious than your individuality. It's a hard thing to maintain, and that is why it is such a prize for those who succeed in achieving it. I believe that those who have achieved such a wondrous thing such as true individuality are among the strongest people in the world. Those who define themselves rather than allowing another person to define them, are the toughest people on the planet. Often they have to put up with ridicule for their bouts of individuality. Kudos to the individualists!!!

yes, we are all unique. we have gifts and talents to use as the person we are. it isn't good to compare ourselves with someone else. life is a gift and is short. be the best that you can be.
