It’s much easier to be like everyone else.

Deep down we believe

  • Other people’s lives are better than ours (so we copy them)
  • We are inadequate (compared to who we thought we’d become)
  • If we show our true colours, we’ll be spurned and ridiculed (and die lonely and unloved)

But you are so much more than a copy of everyone else, dear friend.

It’s what makes you different. Not less.

“So, how do you become more of yourself?” [Fletcher asked of Jonathan Livingston Seagull. To which Jonathan replied…]

“Like everything else, Fletcher. Practice.”
