"I'm cude! I'm cude! She said I'm cude!"
~ Rudolph in Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
Rudy says this just after a pretty doe named Clarice tells him he's cute. Then he jumps high into the air to showcase his flying reindeer skills. And they're some pretty impressive skills.
So, what can we take away from this? Plenty. If you hide your bright red nose (who you really are) under a layer of mud and muck (what the world expects of you) you'll end up saying "cude" when you mean "cute" (you won't give an accurate representation of yourself).
Be yourself. Don't let your fears of what everybody else will think snuff your light out.
