A very insightful piece Lawren. The root of why we question ourselves resides in human nature, in my opinion. It is engrained within us at an early age that we must fit into society, learn to function within it and be accepted by it’s norms. People are afraid of the things they do not understand, and so they try to fight against it , they challenge it.
Lucky for us, we live in an age where society is becoming more and more accepting of things that are different. Heck, it’s even encouraged. However, this does not stop the outliers from being there. There will always be people that bring us down, but there will always be people who fight by our sides. It took me a while to see it at first but my closest friends brought me to this realisation.
I try not to let those thoughts run free in my head, however we are only human and we want happiness, love and acceptance above all else.
