who are you to tell me who i am?

what they tell you:
"wear heals always. curl your hair. capitalize the first letter and put a period at the end, be fake and smile no matter what. stab people in the back. say what they want to hear. if your outfit didn't cost a certain amount your cheap. your laugh is geeky. reading is for nerds. carbs are bad.. don't eat carbs. and don't forget to count your calories. every last one of them."
what are you trying to prove to them?
As human beings, we all have something in common;
we all get one life to live and one life only.
  live it with love, courage and the thirst for unlimited possibilities.
The answer to the question of "what is stopping me" is not scientific, or complex, it is simple. 
It's you.
 The most valuable gift that you have is your life, so live life on your terms versus someone else's.
Be a person of a thousand dreams, but be more than that,
be a person of a thousand dreams that had the courage to take a step towards
making them reality.
Dare to take that step.
Rid of the doubt within you.
Don't look back on the past and wish things were different,
be grateful for the person you are now, because at one point what you did was what
you needed at that very second.
but do not live a life of regret.
you are you, and that is the greatest blessing you have.
What's stopping you from being what you wish?
nothing. because you can be more than that.
You ARE more than that.

People don't know who you are. You aren't who you seem to be. Your the geeky, quiet, awkward girl who nobody seems to get. Your always two steps behind the rest of the group. You're only awkward because people can't understand the way you think; you try to rearrange your words, but you can't, because that would be like changing the essence of who you are. You're only quiet because you have another world inside your head, where everything seems to blend together seamlessly. It seems like you're two steps behind, but that's only because you're walking in a completely different direction.
