be daring. be different. be impractical. be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary.
If you pretend to be someone your not to make people like you. And you have to be different for them to like you and they don't then they aren't a real friend. So just be yourself and i promise people will love the real you! So please be yourself.
