I feel bad for you, for the girl, boy, trying to change who you are to fit a person’s expectations. One day that mortal will die, travel far away, or disappear, and you’ll be stuck with a version of you that you don’t recognise, a person you were not called to be.
We are not called to impress people, but sometimes we have to, still whatever happens, make sure you always keep a greater portion of your uniqueness, of who you are, because that’s who you will truly live with for the rest of your life :*
And whatever improvements you make, ensure that you are making them for yourself, cos you’ll never get bored with better versions of you.
Enjoy who you are!
