Fitting In

Fitting In
I've managed to fit in at many schools, but what I really want to do is be myself. I'm going to be in middle school next year, but I don't want to go as an "actor" just to fit in. How can I fit in and be myself at the same time?

Reply from the Highlights Editors
The answer is to be true to yourself. Be kind to others and treat them as courteously as you expect to be treated by them.

It's important to have friends who share your values. It isn't necessary to try to please everyone, as long as you behave in a way that you are proud of.

Best wishes,
