In this world, many people have opinions about who you are and who you should be. This makes discovering oneself and being oneself hard. Vindicated has many meanings- to clear from accusation, to justify, to free. I picked this word because we are all vindicated when we stop relying on others for our own self value. I have a right to be who I am and for others to respect that. I'll live up to my own expectations and nobody else's.
