No one can make you feel inferior without your consent- Eleanor Roosevelt

Never let what people
think of you
get in the way of your
dreams. What they think
is irrelevant,
their opinions
cloud your head.
They just do.
They push you
to the edge,
farther and farther off
the cliff,
until you're hanging
by a thread.
Don't let them change
you. Don't let them break
Be who you are.
Not who others want you to be,
what others think you
should be.
You are yourself. For yourself to form,
not to be formed using the mold
of society's ideals.
Be who you want to be, who you are.
Not what people think you should be, not what people say you are.
Break free from society's mold.

The author's comments:
Society has this perfect mold that they expect everyone to fit. And it's killing us because we cannot fit that mold. We push ourselves trying to fit it, and when we fail, we push ourselves harder, continually failing because no one is perfect, and we are all different, and no one fits the mold.
