How I did it: I finally got tired of worrying about what people thought. How they perceived me. I got tired of worrying about what I was wearing, what I said, how I said it, when I said it, the way I talked and it even came down to the way I walked it became just so ridiculous to the point where I realized I wanted the old me back. Caring so much about what people thought changed me. So I decided. No more. I did everything I wanted to. And realized I've got no one to please but myself, and the people that enjoy it are the ones that matter, the ones that deserve to be called your friends and the only ones that you should care what they think but not to a great extent but not in the sense that its going to change you.
Lessons & tips: Think about who you are. Why your this way, and what you do and why you do it. Do you do certain things to try to portray something to others? Or because you honestly like it? What really matters is what you think of yourself, because once you start caring what other people think you lose yourself, and start becoming them. Don't you want to be you? and do what you you like? Not what they think you should be doing.
Resources: My brain. My spirit. People surrounding me that liked me for who I am.
