ME I'M A BIT DIFFERENT FROM THE OTHERS, ONE OF MY ULTIMATE GOALS IN LIFE IS TO STAY AS TRUE TO MYSELF AS POSSIBLE. FREDERICK DOUGLASS ONCE SAID "I prefer to be true to myself, even at the hazard of incurring the ridicule of others, rather than to be false, and to incur my own abhorrence." FOR ME THIS MEANS ALMOST EVERYTHING. IT MEANS THAT I WILL NOT SELL MYSELF SHORT, THAT I RATHER STRUGGLE TO THE HIGH GROUND, THAN EASILY TAKE THE LOW GROUND. IT MEANS THAT I RATHER BE HONEST WITH YOU AND RISK TEMPORARILY HURTING YOUR FEELINGS RATHER THAN LIE AND HELP YOU WITH A CONSTANT PAIN. IT MEANS THAT AT TIMES YOU MAY NOT LIKE ME FOR WHO I AM OR WHAT I MIGHT HAVE SAID, BUT IN THE END YOU WILL RESPECT ME. THIS ALSO MEANS THAT I MUST ALSO BE THE FIRST TO ADMIT THAT THERE HAVE BEEN TIME WHERE I MUST CONFORM BUT IN THOSE TIMES I HAVE BEEN FALSE TO MYSELF AND HAVE INCURRED MY OWN ABHORRENCE. SO IN THE END I RATHER BE HONEST TO MYSELF AND YOU AND REMAIN TRUE TO MYSELF.
