Every single day, be the person you truly want to be. Don't worry about what other people think, just live in a way that makes you happy. Live a life you can always be proud of. As long as you have this for yourself, it doesn't matter if others don't understand or approve.
Always be true to yourself, who you are as a person. The people who really care about you will appreciate you for who you are, no matter what. So feel free to stay true to yourself and flaunt how amazing you are.
