Do you ever wake up and wonder what it would be like to be normal? To be able to walk among others in society and feel like you belong? I do. Daily.
But I’ve come to realize it’s pointless. There are some things about me that I just can’t change and wouldn’t want to if I could. It’s a part of what makes me, me. I don’t want to fit into society anyway. Every time I turn on the television there’s something new to wear, some new object that connects to whatever faster, and it’s all just a bunch of crap. You buy a bunch of stuff to impress people who you probably don’t even like that much.
I’m in a competition with no one and the only person that I need to be accepted by is myself. I like my stuff (old or new) and I like myself even with my a million flaws. Of course there’s always going to be room for improvement and I’m always going to feel like an outcast when I’m around a group of people, but I see no point in trying to make everyone else happy if I’m miserable.
We are all weird and/or crazy in our own way so it’s about time we just accept it. I’ve spent so long trying to be what everyone else wanted me to be instead of just loving myself for who I am. Now I’m 21 and trying to figure this all out now and I feel like I should have gone through this when I was a teenager. I think it’s something that everyone struggles with no matter what age you are.
Just be happy with who you are. There’s no point in living your life in a way that doesn’t put a smile on your face. No matter what you do or who you are there is always going to be someone against you for something. Why put yourself through that? Why deal with the headache. I’m awesome how I am. I laugh too loud, I make weird noises at random times, I play my music too loud, I make dumb jokes, and I’m passionate about what really matters to me. There’s nothing wrong with that.
If you love yourself and you love your life why change it? I understand if you’re a harm to yourself or others around you things need to change, but if that’s not the case then wake up with confidence. All the confidence in the world. People who are secure in who they are, are not only the happiest people but also the bravest. At least in my opinion anyway. If the whole world is going to be against you why would you be against yourself?
Cause everybody knows that hardest war to fight is the fight to be yourself when the voices try to turn you into someone else
