They always tell you how easy it is to find yourself,
but what about those kids that search and search and search,
coming up with what they see as disappointment
and what we see as an unfinished finding?
How can we let them think they aren’t someone?
How do we allow them to walk around with that weight on their shoulders,
that constant pressure to fit into a certain group or category just so they can have their own label, just so they can announce that they found themselves, even if it isn’t truly what they are meant to be?
Accept all those on their journey, whether it be finding themselves or enhancing who they already are.
There is no shame in improvement or in change.
There is only shame in shaming others.
