God's creation of you put a smile on His face. Yes, that's what Paul's first letter to the Corinthians tells us. Why, them, do so many people not accept the way God made them? And, even more incredibly, why do they try to change their identity? Some people will go the extra miles just try to change what they really are.
God made you on purpose for a purpose. He has a specific mission for you that no one else can do as well as you. Out of billions of applicants, you're the most qualified among them. So you are irreplaceable in your very own way.
We had all heard that the biggest enemy of great is good. The biggest obstacle or enemy most of us will face is ourselves, the voice within that says, "Be like him; you're not worthy; do what she does; go where the crowd is heading." You see, when you're trying to be like someone else, the best you can ever be no matter how much your effort you'll only play second fiddle. A carbon copy of someone can only be as perfect as just another clone. So break out of your mold and be yourself!
Brothers and sisters, it's time to get our eyes off others and onto God. Everyone will detour; even your closest family will, but God will always keep you on the right railway. To become the person that He intended you to be, use what He has blessed you. Follow your unique plan and live the unlimited plan.
