Never let anyone tell you it's not, or that you should be something different, or that you should be like them.
God made you to be yourself, including both your gifts and your baggage (that can be grown through and healed), and there is no one who can stand up and fill the place you were created for the same way that you are able to. It is your story we need, and your heart and self that even God himself is lonely for.
Take courage. Stand up. Spread your wings. Be.
