You just don’t fit.
You just aren’t quite right.
You just can’t squeeze into that mold, but you try. Over and over shaving down the pieces that hang over the sides. Chip off at bits that fall out the bottom, hammer away at the edges breaking through the top. Make it fit, make it contained, force yourself into that uncomfortable shape. Fight your sharp unique curves, your soft center, and your standout slanted sides. Don’t stick out and be noticed. Be one of many, be many of one. Hide amongst the others contorted, squished and smashed into one size fits all.
