Currently, planet earth has an approximate population of 6 billion human beings. God created each one of us differently. We have black, brown, hazel, chocolate, white, orange, yellow coloured people. I’m not separating on the basis of colour, but I‘m trying to show just how different we are, with a basic clear example.
Inside each one of us, we have different outlooks towards life, different tastes of foods and drinks, different hobbies, different principles, I mean, the list is endless, but the point is, we are so different. This is why we have menus at restaurants, for you to choose what you want, many music genres because we have different tastes, I could go on and on but you do get my point, right? I mean, even identical twins and triplets are so different- character wise, identity, even one could have a slightly different complexion than the other.

Many people try to please other people they perceive as more important to others so that they get some sort of social credit and status. Sad, isn’t it? Lemmie use the jigsaw as an example. A jigsaw has different parts of the puzzle. Every piece is unique from the other in terms of shape, colour, design, etc. If two pieces were identical, then it would be useless. The picture or message that was meant to be conveyed on completion would not come through. This means that as different as the pieces maybe, they all serve a purpose. What I’m trying to say is that being you is key for one’s self-development. It also brings one so much joy and peace when they do what they love and be who God intended them to be. Do not let people and the world make you into something you are not. If you do, you’ll end up a sad bitter person, not understanding what went wrong, where did it all go wrong.

Being you comes with a task of being able to speak for oneself and stand for what you believe in. Not what the cool kid of the class thinks or what your best friend thinks or what your parents think. And when you stand for what you believe, people will respect and appreciate that and will stop using you or disregarding your presence. People also tend to judge people who try to be like others negatively. Try to be you and do you. Remember, the world needs you to be you than to be like the coolest dudes in your class. So go ahead and be you. The world will be a better place, Trust me.
