It is hard.
Being yourself is hard.
We humans constantly try to twist ourselves to adapt to the world.
I am an extrovert. However, I should not be too loud.
I am an introvert. However, I should go out there and have a life.

If I be loud, people won't like me.
If I go out there, I won't fall lonely.
In this world full of love and hate do we focus more on the negatives? Insecurities? Hate?
And to avoid the anxiety, we land with the idea of twisting.

Twisting is great. For the ideas that you feel are worthy of this sacrifice. For the people that are close, we twist a little for them to feel better. But when we do it, the feeling is happy rather than a sacrifice.

But for the ideas and people we don't feel happy to twist for,
Listen to your mind, listen to your body.
Even if requires saying 'NO'.
