To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something different is the greatest accomplishment. (Ralph Waldo Emerson, 19th century essayist and poet)

People today—especially young people—are pressed on every side to conform to whatever the current “ideal” image is supposed to be. TV, movies, and social media, constantly portray what the current appearance, activity, or music style should be. It takes a good, moral foundation to withstand such pressure and to be the person God made you to be.

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind (Romans 12:2).
