Your Voice

One thing is immutable in this universe...that you are entirely unique and no other life form that has ever existed, or will ever exist, is the same as you.  You are beyond rare, there is no word to completely explain your uniqueness.  Not even identical twins that share the same DNA are the same, they differ in their experiences and how those experiences are wired in their brains.  From the moment identical twins are born, they diverge as unique lives.  

Profound stuff, but nevertheless true.  So, my question is - Why on earth would you squander that uniqueness?  You have a voice that only belongs to you, your purpose is wrapped in that voice, so don't stifle it, nurture it.  When the world seeks to silence you, to assimilate you, to mute your uniqueness, your duty is to defend your voice.  You only get one shot at this life, don't waste it by letting others define your voice.
