Living your life unapologetically helps you go through life more stress-free.
It’s difficult to find people who are original. They don’t have to sugar coat their life, to make it seem better than it is. Sure, fitting with the ‘in-crowd’ gets you into the social circle, but you could be hindering your identity unintentionally.
If you build relationships on fake smiles and giggles, then you don’t have a relationship at all. Trying to fit in is exhausting to your mind, body, and spirit. It will produce negative energy, when in fact just being yourself can creative positive ones.
Think of the ‘copy’ and ‘paste’ options on our computer screens. If we all want to adhere to the perfect person, according to social media and the news, then no one would ever tell us apart.

Blood, emotions, and neurons are what make us all connected. If we truly want deeper connections with others, then we have to try to connect with ourselves first.
