Just Be Yourself by Heir-of-Rick Just Be Yourself by Heir-of-Rick
When "being yourself" means being a little weirdo, life can be rough sometimes. But one day you find someone just as weird as you who makes it all worth it.

EDIT: Oh hai Equestria Daily. Thank you all for the super nice comments! I've been reading them all, and some people have posted truly profound and touching statements! Like I've said, I was a little hesitant moving my stuff here. But you guys have made me feel right at home!

It's fine with being yourself as long as you remember that it is no one/ no ponies responsibility to accept who you are.

Be proud of it. People who call you weird just don't know what they are talking about.

There is some irony that I, as a furry and a brony, feel a kind of kinship with Lyra, who wishes to be more like a human. Irony is fun like that.

Funnily enough, furries did come to my mind when making this comic. Some people give you guys such grief just for being yourselves and liking what you like. Luckily we have quite a number of Bon-Bons in this fandom, as such is my experience!

What cards are Lyra referring to?

The Hallmark company is known for its cheesy, uplifting, "feel good" movies and greeting cards. Often times these cards will have inspiring little messages like "When you be yourself, you be a winner" or something along those lines.

When "being yourself" means being a little weirdo, life can be rough sometimes. But one day you find someone just as weird as you who makes it all worth it.

The age-old tension between wanting to fit in and wanting to express yourself - captured perfectly in the form of a comic. Humans (and technicolor ponies) are social creatures deep down; at the same time, we also have a fundamental desire (and, in fact, need) to ascertain our own distinct identity. Finding the right balance can be hard.

But as they say - every Jill has her Jack. :)

This. All of this. I feel this.
"Be yourself" only works if you can make a career out of it. When you're an obnoxious kid with ADHD it really backfires.

Oh don't get me wrong, you can really make it work for you in the long run (like an ADD painter I remember seeing). It's just it can be a disaster when you're young.
