Not everyone always likes the same things. That doesn’t necessarily make one way wrong or right. (What do those words even mean?) The important thing is to believe in what you believe in with all of your heart. 

One of my favorite songs ever is “Defying Gravity” from the broadway musical Wicked. Elphaba has decided what she believes in and is ready to go advocate for it no matter what obstacles get in her way, and she doesn’t care what others think about her. However, I think what is really special about this song is how, while Galinda has basically the opposite perspective of Elphaba, Elphaba still respects Galinda and her choices because they are friends.

As it gets closer to school time, I can’t wait to see my friends again in person. We’ve talked over the summer, but everyone is always traveling and busy, so we haven’t really seen each other much. We may all have different opinions sometimes, but the thing about best friends is that they are still there to support you even when you don’t agree.

When you work together you’re, “unlimited”. Even when you have to go your separate ways, you know that they “have changed you for the better. And, because you knew them, you have been changed for good.”
