Then and Now


I used to try so hard.

I used to try to fit in so much that at the end of the day I was exhausted from just being me.

I cared to much about fitting in with the people I put around me.

I had to keep up with their music, their social media, their trends.

It was so tiring.

But here I am now.

I’m closer to being me.

I’m not exhausted from emotional and mental effort.

I don’t try to know about the latest meme, or trend.

Because the real me doesn’t care about that type of thing.

The real me cares about the latest great song I found deep in the universe of YouTube.

The real me listens to all music, not just the newest rap song.

I now have friends that I don’t have to keep up with because we all are different and love that.

That was me then, and this is me now.
