BEING A NON- CONFORMIST!
As Yates said, “The worst thing that you can do in this life is to live a lie.” To live true to the essence of who you are is not easy. “Be not conformed to this world” the scriptures say. And Shakespeare reminds us “above all: to thine own self be true.” Easy to say. Hard to do.
Even Yates struggled with this ideal. Like his characters, he was plagued with alcoholism, depression and difficult relationships. He died broke of emphysema at the age of 66. What this film represents is that very struggle we all have. And let’s be real, it is a struggle. Still, we do need to become all that we are intended to be. Here’s to you and your journey. May this film encourage you.
