The world is abundant and you needn't be what you don't want to be.
Such differences should not be feared, but considered into one's decisions to make world a better place.
No matter how much you grease yourself with paint, you can never please everyone. You deserve to be accepted, not renovated.
Those who don't desire to follow status quo bring in innovation with their effort to gain freedom.
What is not okay is being possessed by your flaws. Your flaws are just a part of you and do not explain your whole existence.
It's not a mere absence of dependence.
You're never truly free as long as clock is ticking.
You can't be selective about which stressors to face, but you can be selective about how to face those stressors.
