Who am I?
A question that we all often ask ourselves. Who are we and what direction are we going in. Are you going to ‘fit’ in to what society wants you to be or are you going to take the plunge and be yourself.
Especially at a younger age I feel as if there’s a pressure to ‘fit in’. Being a little different to others can be seen as a negative.Growing up there was always the things everyone had, if you didn’t you weren’t seen as cool and as terrible as it is every little 13 year old wants to be like that. I was heavily influenced by celebrities, products they endorsed or styles they wore were things I wanted to as well. As a young teenager I was very impressionable and wanted just to be like everyone else. There was certain music everyone liked, certain clothing everyone wore (oh how I now hate Joni jeans) and almost certain way everyone behaved. We all had similar interests and were almost mini clones of each other. ( Also side note how can 13 year old’s do makeup and not have any stupid trends like we did???) Being different was something that not many people were and often had negative consequnces. Breaking out from this I believe that as a society we are becoming more accepting, because lets face it everyone can be who they dam want to be.
‘Being different isn’t a bad thing. It means you’re brave enough to be yourself’
Even in the ‘blogging word’ there is a pressure to fit. Everyone does the clique posts, has perfect instagram feeds and pretty much every blogger has a common persona. Branching out and having more content shared is great. Personally I love reading unique post and being different actually makes me want to read your blog more.
There’s 7 billion people in this world, now imagine if everyone was the same, boring right? Being different is fun and you as an individual are unique. Yes we all like the follow trends and I’m not one to say I don’t but I can say I am not a clone of the trends. I may fall into certain ‘catergories’ but I am myself. Without people being different culture and traditions would not take place and we would live in a world full of ‘robots’ everyone the same, so simple and dull.
You have such an unique frame of mind. No one else thinks like you do or has been through the experiences you have, so why should we all have to follow the same trends? Break out and start reflecting who you want to be. Don’t follow societies rules. You are unique and you are the only person that can show the world that, don’t hide.
Yes people may make comments or look at you weird, but who the hell cares. As long as you are happy and doing what you want to do, then who am I to judge? Start realising it’s okay to be you. I respect someone that is themselves so much more than someone that follows the trends to fit in. Being yourself
Don’t be afraid to be yourself. If you don’t like something then don’t do it just because. It’s your life and you only get one chance to do it, so don’t spend it being someone you don’t want to be. You will only waste your time and regret it later.
‘Don’t change so people like you. Be yourself and the real people will love you’
