“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
Listen to me, be a meal, not a snack.
A snack is something that everyone loves. A snack can be close to anything, a candy bar, an apple, whatever your heart desires.
A meal, on the other hand, is a commitment. People have some strong opinions about the meal. Let’s say you are a fantastic steak you’ve got perfect marbling and are cooked to perfection.
A person that is vegan or vegetarian will hate and quite possibly be disgusted by you. No matter how hard you try to convince them it is going to be close to impossible to in a way convert them to liking you.
That is the way that the cookie crumbles, unfortunately.
Here is the thing though when you are a meal you are unique, you have a specific purpose. You will not be loved by everyone but those that do love you will really love you.
So although the cookie may be crumbling someone is still going to eat it. Get your head on straight, find out who you are, and just live.
