The message here is simple, loud and clear as the title. Don’t try to fit-in. Period. Well, whether you’ve moved across continents, changed schools, transferred universities, switched jobs, joined a new club, a new activity group, doesn’t matter what it is. Be yourself, work on improving yourself, observe, learn and apply but don’t try to fake yourself into something/someone that you’re not, even if it happens to be that you’re at a bar and you see a girl/lady sitting on the other side of the bar you feel like talking to. Don’t fake yourself. The reason I’m trying to convey this message in more ways then one is that every person/group you meet/connect with you make a bond, a relationship, but, prior to that you have a relationship with yourself, which is of utmost importance. You should know who you are, where you stand, where you are wanting to be, and it takes more than just a day to discover yourself. Everyone’s unique and special in their own way, and has got their own talents, we just need to find what it is and channel our energy on it. I know, so much blabbing the generic terms, that’s probably what you’re thinking right?? Well, yes, but all of it applies to all of us. Now, back to the crust. Whensoever, it happens to be, that we find ourselves amongst a new group of people, or looking at that stranger across the bar, or in a new location altogether, there’s definitely a difference in the demographic based on where we come from and where we are right now, but that doesn’t mean that we lie about who we are or make desperate attempts at trying to be one of ’em, trying to act like we’re like ’em. It’s not important and most of all, it doesn’t help. So, sense the gaps, observe, there might be a few things/traits/techniques that are good to learn and adopt but don’t put your uniqueness and integrity on the line. Again, Observe->Learn->Apply. Voila!!
