    Here is a secret: We are all in this together!

    It doesn't make any sense at all to continue being so critical of each other.

    Also, we need more people to step up and be honest about who they really are. Stop pretending to to be confident and cool. Just be your normal vulnerable self.

    Also, when we see someone who is being authentic let's acknowledge them and validate them.

    We just don't need to judge each other so harshly, but that doesn't mean we have to approve of everyones bad decisions either. It is ok to have an opinion. Just figure out how to be kind when you express it.

    Remember the Alamo! America is awesome because we are awesome!
