Unique is more interesting. Being average is overrated.
I know being yourself can be difficult. The pressure to fit in. Doesn't matter if you're 5, 50, or 80 - there are always certain expectations from those around you. And things you impose on yourself.
What if you weren't just "average" all the time? What if you let your petals fly in the wind, say, 15% of the time? Half the time?
Reveal your uniqueness to the world a little at a time. See what happens. If a "friend" doesn't accept you for you, can you honestly say you were that happy hanging out with them? It's ok to let them go.
Do I let my unique self shine through all the time? No. I'm a work in progress, too.
