You can't please everyone, so don't waste time trying. You will lose who you are if you keep changing to appease others. You may feel all alone in a crowded room- but maybe the crowd your with is the problem. I'd rather be alone in the water than be surrounded by sharks. You know whether you are treading in water or on thin ice it will wear you down. You can't grow where you are till you get your feet planted on solid land.
