Little kids and college kids have a lot in common. It's so true that it's hilarious at some points. We both love snacks, naps, avoiding responsibilities, and most importantly we both need to be reminded how amazing we are. We've all heard it before for so long but I think it's necessary to hear it all the time and especially now. Midterms might have been rough and we're pretty far into school and it's reasonable to not feel so awesome all the time. I can admit that at this time of year I forget about the things that make me who I am. I replace them to be someone who I deem better than myself. However, being yourself and staying true to yourself is more important than anything else. During college it can be easy to become a follower and do whatever everyone else is doing. It raises the question, is the easy path truly easier? In my opinion, trying to be something you're not is so much harder than just admitting to yourself and your friends that you are who you are and that should be enough. You're friends will admire you for it and who knows who else you could inspire at the same time. So next time you think someone is cooler than you or smarter or all around better just remember to never stop being yourself. Each person has something so special to offer and being able to see that in yourself is something to be admired and acknowledged. It's hard to do and you're allowed to struggle with it but the outcome will be so great in the long run.
