    Thank you Becky for those beautiful words.
    I particularly liked the one by Kurt Kobain,
    “You laugh at me because I am different. I laugh at you because you are all the same”

    I think it’s a great reminder for all of us.

    The harsh truth is that many people seek validation from others. Thus, instead of being 100% honest (with ourselves and others), we try to fit in.
    Basically, we hate uncertainty, and love certainty.

    So what can we do?
    One of the solutions is increasing our self-awareness and self-knowledge.
    I’ve found that to be truly helpful.
