I think I’m (very slowly) getting to the point in growing up where I’m starting to understand that I can be nothing but myself, that pretending to be anything else is just unsustainable. It’s too exhausting.
I read that if you are yourself, other people with similar energies will naturally be attracted to you. I want to learn to trust in that process. To no longer try to hold on to friends if they really don’t have that much in common with me. To accept that not everybody is going to like or click with me. And to be open when people whom I can be comfortable with do come along. And they will. (I hope)
