I don't think I'm going to state this well but I'll try.
One of the messages I really relate to from this documentary is = don't be equal.
That doesn't necessarily mean you should be more or less than others, just don't ever ever be equal to everyone else.
Think for yourself. Be yourself. STOP CARING WHAT OTHERS THINK OF YOU. Don't care what your family, friends, anyone who's directly involved in your
life thinks of you, don't be swayed anymore by their opinion. LET IT GO. Does that mean be selfish, no, not at all. Just never ever give up WHO YOU
ARE - for them.
Being YOU - and only you - sets a standard for truth in all your relationships. It also takes doubt away from why the people in your life are in your
life. But that's another subject. Back to the point...
Once you're free from that mid set? From caring what others think of you? Real freedom starts.
From first hand experience I can tell you - to accomplish this? It takes a lot a sack. A LOT. Fighting the perceptions of others, fighting your own
perceptions. BUT - once you finally get free from the prison of 'what everyone else thinks'? You just can't believe what freedom taste
In the same vein it's scary. It's scary to look at others - the 'suits' I call them - those that absolutely must have to walk, talk, dress, act, eat
and BE like everyone else, male or female. It's downright scary watching sheep in motion.
And be prepared for it being lonely. You know you're not them. They know you're not them. And there's no middle ground. The 'suits' will do all
they can to malign you, condemn you, make you feel even more an outcast. Because you are an outcast. And you scare them. It's not pretty.
But is it worth it? You bet. It's the true reality pill. Just being you.
