“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
In case you haven’t noticed, I really like Emerson. He had a lot of really poignant and apropos things to say about life and society. The observation he makes in the above quote is no exception.
Isn’t that one of the truest things about our modern culture? Have you noticed how difficult it is these days to be valued for who you are, as a unique and special individual?
