Life is hard and not enough people admit that. Finding people who will support you unconditionally is very challenging as this small group of people is often called your "tribe." It is easy to get swept away on social media and think you have a large tribe. The pressure to fit into groups that you find interesting as well also erodes your uniqueness. DON'T BE AFRAID TO BE UNIQUE! I often find that I do not fit into the group molds for "quant finance", "finance", "an academic", "a motocross racer", "a gardener", or even "a dad." But over the years I have stuck to who I am and ignored the constantly moving crowds. I have been left with true gold in the people that make up my tribe. They have been there in times of need and I have been there for them. Don't forget who your true tribe is and don't change just to fit into some group.
