if nothing else, i want you to at least be yourself. if that is a flower among the rocks, so be it. if you are planted just above the barbwire, that's okay, too. if you're slightly out of focus, i won't think you any different, because imagination is good for you and no one should tell you otherwise. but promise me that you will be who you are. if you like hip-hop and rap, cool. if you like classical and jazz, that's okay, too. if you read thrillers or romance novels or even the section on vampires and werewolves, fine then. i hope it's good. if you dress like a rockstar or a hipster, then good for you! but don't let anyone tell you differently. don't let anyone tell you you're copycatting or that you're not original, and don't let anyone find fault in you because you don't like the same things they do. lucia told me in a conversation we had a few days ago: "since originality became 'in style,' nothing seems to be original anymore." and actually, that's okay. don't strive to be the only one, strive for a purpose. don't change who you are because someone told you you're not genuine, you're not real, because at the end of the day, you should strive to please God. because pleasing men can get you into a whole heap of trouble [humans suck so i've decided to become a timelord]. in the explanation of her blog name, jenn says the same thing. so promise me, darling, be who you are. and know that there is no one else on the face of this whole-wide-universe that is exactly the same person as you. so while they say nothing is new under the sun, you are. because no one, absolutely no one, can hold a candle to you [more like a wet match].
