Ask yourself these questions:
- Am I scared that things will not work out or do I have a fear of success, that things work out and I can't handle it?
- Do you spend a lot of time trying to get people to like you, do you know other people more than you know yourself? Do you want to be like someone else? Have you invested so much time in those people that you don't know who you are?
- Are you a copy cat of someone else? Do you idolize other people (There's a difference between idolizing and admiring someone. When you idolize someone you praise them and want to be like them where as when you admire them you respect something about them and like them for what they have achieved.)
I would really advise those of you who know others better than they know themselves to spend time alone, find out who you are, find out what you want, find out what makes you happy and most of all invest in yourself.
Separate yourself from other people, be different (You'll stand out better that way because trust me there are too many copy cats in this world... Sad truth). To avoid being a follower just Be the best You you can be. There'll never be a better you than yourself.
