As human beings, every day we tell ourselves and others what is acceptable and what is not. We need to have individuality but you can’t be too different because that’s weird. Nobody likes or wants to be friends with a freak. You have to wear these clothes so everyone will like you and think you are cute but wait… are you really wearing that? Everyone is wearing that, you’re too “basic”. You are chubby? Ew. You are too skinny? Ew. You have short hair? Ew. Your hair is too long. You can never win, everything you do is wrong and unaacceptable. You can’t please everybody ever.
You just want people to like you, right? Even if it’s not really YOU? Your happiness doesn’t quite matter just as long as you’re accepted. But who are you accepted by? The people who are completely irrelevant in your life. Why should their opinion matter? Why should they dictate the decisions in your life?
You see… what I do not get is why people are so worried about others being judgmental of them and always saying “screw people who judge”, and what not when really… why should you care? Why should you care if people judge you, or what you do, what you wear or who you love? It’s you who’s living your life, not them, not anyone else but you. So no… people who judge aren’t stupid, you, yourself are stupid for letting their opinions and prejudice bother you. The point of this is to hopefully make you want to be yourself and stop caring so much of what people think about you right now. Four years from now what you did in high school won’t matter at all, unless you got pregnant and had a baby but hopefully you didn’t. Who cares what other people say or think about you because at the end of the day the only person that matters is you. “Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.” Quote by Bernard M. Baruch
