The world is full of originals trying to be copycats. People pretending to be something they’re not. People imitating other people.
Expression of originality is a scaring thing. Because we fear rejection. It feels safer to risk rejection as a copycat than it does to risk rejection as our authentic selves.
But those who don’t reject our originality will become our strongest supporters. Stronger than any supporters we could ever have as copycats. And their support will embolden us even more to be original.
