Be Yourself Or Die

So, I’m pretty much tired of not being myself. I talk to my wife about it because she has a more advanced case of it than I do. But the truth is, I hide who I am in order to fit in too. The truth is, when you aren’t being yourself, you might as well already be dead. The Bene Gesserits said long before me.

I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.

I’m a geek, I’m vegan, I fucking love Amanda Palmer and the ukulele, I feel sorry for people who “don’t like to read”, I’m a writer and a dreamer. I love long rambling text posts that nobody will probably ever read.


About Robert

Robert McKay has been in love with books as long as he can remember, but it wasn't until he got to go to the middle school library that he really found his true passion in science fiction and fantasy. He first found them in the form of Choose Your Own Adventure books, but he didn't stop there. Soon he found fantasy books that were so big that he could hardly carry them. But carry them he did. Not long after, he started creating worlds of his own. His tendencies got him labeled as a weirdo and outcast. He stopped writing and barely read for a very long time. When he finally started reading and writing again, it felt like coming home. Though he tends to write science fiction and fantasy stories, they all tend to have an element of romance, whether he originally intends them to or not. If you want to hear more from him, he can be found on Twitter.

One thought on “Be Yourself Or Die

  1. Why would we want to fit in with people who don’t accept us for who we are anyway? The best people in your life are the ones who like you for being YOU. And the world would be a reeeally boring place if we were all alike.
