I think a lot of people let other people’s expectations of them shape who they are. Or maybe if they get called names enough, they will start to believe it’s true. Well, it isn’t. You are your own person. Do the things that make you happy, and be the person you want to be. You are the only person who gets to decide who to be. No one else. Not ever.
