There’s something to be said for being yourself.
It requires far less energy than trying to be someone else, and these days, everyone is looking to conserve a little energy, right? It’s also far more satisfying to do what you truly love rather than what someone else loves. And third, being yourself might be the only chance to give yourself to be really brave, because let’s face it, it takes a good deal of bravery to be a child-free adult who loves her Saturday morning cartoons. What? No…of course, I don’t do that…except in months with 28 days in them.
