“To be nobody but yourself – in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you like everybody else – means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.”
– e.e. cummings
In a world that says we must compare, correct and conform, this e.e. cummings quote – written decades ago – has, surely, never been more relevant.
There’s so much pressure for us to look the same, act the same, be the same.
Sometimes it’s hard to assert our uniqueness because we risk rejection.
But there’s such power in being nobody but ourselves.
