“When you’re first figuring yourself out, you care so much about what people think of you. It’s the worst time. You become introverted and weird because you’re second-guessing yourself; you want to be everything that other people want you to be. Then you become cloaked in this societal bull**** that’s plonked in your lap and you spend the rest of your time digging yourself out. And that’s my conclusion for life […] I constantly ask myself if what I’m doing is for me or for someone else. You can convince yourself something is good for you, but is it really? So I ask, are you doing this for you, or because you feel like it’s the right thing for you? Lately, I’ve been exploring my relationship with myself. It’s tripping me out!” – Alicia Keys on figuring out who she is.
