Don't ever let life put you down.
Just know that you will always be you.
At some point you'll change.
But life isn't going to do that for you.
You're gonna have to seek & find out how that works.
But just don't let anyone stop you from doing what you need to do.
Be a fruit loop in a World of cheerios.
Be you & be happy with that.
Donít you ever let a soul in the World.
Tell you that you canít be exactly who you are.
Why are you trying so hard to fit in.
When you were born to stand out.
You donít need anybody to tell you,
who you are or what you are.
You are what you are.
Be you, not someone everyone else wants you to be.
Be whoever you want to be.
People are going to judge you no matter what you do.
Be who you are & say what you feel.
Because those who mind don't matter.
& those who matter don't mind.
Be what you are.
This is the first step toward becoming a better you.
You were born an original.
Don't die a copy.
It is better to be hated for what you are.
Than to be loved for something you are not.
Have you ever realized.
That when people say youíve changed.
Itís just because youíve stopped..
Living your life ... their way.
Worry about your character.
Not your reputation because your character..
Is who you are & your reputation..
Is what people think you are.
Always be a first-rate version of yourself.
Instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.
Cling to your imperfections...
That's what makes you unique.
Take a chance & never let go.
Risk everything, lose nothing.
Donít worry about anything anymore.
Cry in the rain & speak out loud.
Say what you want & love who you desire. Be yourself & not what others want to see.
Never blame anyone else if you get hurt.
Because you took the risk & decided who was worth the while.
Some people believe in love.
I believe in music.
Some people believe in settling down. I believe in standing out.
Wanting to be someone else is a waste of the person you are.
Because the truth is, it doesn't really matter who I used to be.
It's all about who I've become.
I might not be someone's first choice, but I'm a good choice.
I may not be rich, but I'm valuable.
I don't pretend to be someone I'm not,
because I'm good at being me.
I might not be proud of
some of the things I've done in the past.
But I am proud of who I am today.
I may not be perfect, but I don't need to be.
Take me as I am or watch me as I walk away.
I'm not miserable, but I'm not happy.
I'm not strong, but I'm not weak.
I'm not rude, but I'm not polite.
I'm not popular, but I'm not a loner.
I'm not sexy, but I'm not horrid.
I'm not dumb, but I'm no genius.
I'm not you, but I am me.
