I was so terrified at first to begin to be myself around them but the statement that those who love you will accept you as you are and get used to you is very much true.

For a long time, I believed in purpose. Then I listened to voices outside myself that said that purpose was wishy washy and it could be anything I was currently doing. But while I still believe that, I have come to understand that we do have purposes. We don't have to spend our entire life worried about what our purpose is and if we will ever discover it.
