Fuck changing yourself
Jessica Semaan

I don’t believe in changing yourself, I believe in adapting. Adapting to a new environment, new people, your desires, your feelings. If you want to become a calm, less freaked out version of yourself it should be because you feel it would be right for — YOU would be happier, not the rest. I call that adapting yourself to your future self. When you want to change because of someone else, it doesn’t work and it should not work, because it’s not your purpose, your goal. It’s someone else’s goal that you’re trying to achieve. I feel I am crazy at least 20 times a day. I feel I am weirder than most people I know. Sure, there’s people that want you to be more serious/less serious. Trust me I’ve heard both. I’m happy with my weirdness, I’ve adapted it to make me comfortable. I’ve also adapted to a various set of things over the years but they have all been my desires, my goals, my dreams shaped and influenced by circumstances and people. I don’t believe in change. It’s not a switch you turn on and off. I believe in adapting. It’s a process.
