This comes from Wil Wheaton, a guy who pretty brilliant at simply being who he is, unapologetically, unabashedly, and Wonderfully.
If you read nothing else, take these words to heart:
“And don’t let anyone tell you that that thing that you love is a thing that you can’t love… you find the things that you love, and you love them the most that you can.
And listen: This is really important. I want you to be honest, honorable, kind. I want you to work hard. Because everything worth doing is hard.”
