In a world full of judgement, it's super important to remember that it's OK to be different and to not fit in. Easier said then done, forsure. But let's look at the story of musician 'Lights' and how she battled her haters, maybe it can help give some brightness to how to be comfortable with who we are. According to Huffington Post, the young star faced some big adversities and she stands tall to help others in the face of opposition. Here's what she said about her bullying days at We Day in Calgary in the Huffington Post interview:
"In high school I not only didn't have a whole lot of friends, I went to a lot of different schools because we moved a lot. I ended up just keeping to myself and trying to get my work done and do my thing. I wasn't particularly stylish. I was kind of lanky."
"There'd be groups of girls that didn't like me, they didn't like that I smiled, that I was happy, that I worked hard and tried to get out of high school with good marks. I would get pushed into lockers and called names and teased and people would try and start fights with me. Someone keyed my car. And it's not that I had a lot of enemies, it happens to everyone -- even the most popular people in school have problems."
"You really have to have that confidence that you're going to be OK standing out a little bit or not fitting in. It's OK."
Being our true selves is extremely important. Take a puzzle for an analogy, every piece is unique in it's design, and they obviously all won't fit into every place. We must accept our originality.
