Ok, too late to shoot, I am already in my bed but... what does it mean?

"I Just Gotta be Me! · Standard Editing
Someone (or something) being different, that's the idea. Shoot it"

Dance like nobody's watching. Love like you've never been hurt. Sing like nobody's listening. Live like it's heaven on earth.

I think it means "I do not care how the rest of the world thinks I should look or act, I am an individual and I have to honor that." Or, something to that effect.

I really really wish I knew. This is another where the challenge title "I Just Gotta Be Me" suggested one thing to me so I went out shooting with that in mind. Then later I read the description carefully: "Someone (or something) being different, that's the idea" and I said, "Well, phooey!!"

So I shot what I though was someone or something being itself (a self that many of us would not want to be) . . . you know, "I just gotta be me!"

But now I think that's wrong and I should have found someone or something that was being different from what it normally was. Tell me again why we have descriptions on some of the challenges??

Edit to add: and now I'm reading Mark's take and I'm thinking, "Yes, that is what I thought, too."
