If I had one piece of advice for my kids, it’s to be yourself. Don’t change or question who you are to fit in; most of the people you knew from grade school and high school that were popular aren’t anymore. Most of the people you met as children will judge you based on their parents ignorance or behavior, not because they really know you or what feelings are or how great you really are. And most people in the world will find a reason to want to change you into something they want you to be — but none of it is better than who you are today.
