Be You

Stop what you're doing! Stop it! Stop doing that thing that you feel you should do to fit into that box because it's a waste of time anyway and just BE YOU.

Bet you've never heard that before. Yeah, I know, I get it… You think this is going to be one of those annoying embrace your weird posts and well, you're completely bang on because I'm going to talk about not being afraid to be you.

I wasn't the most popular at school and I'm bloody glad I wasn't. Those poor girls pushing themselves into this “cool” box that had no room for unique personality. Everyone dressed the same, did their hair the same and did the same activities all because they were too afraid that no one would like them if they were different. And honestly, I didn't really like them because I wasn't up for having the same robot conversation with twelve of the same personality. Not that they would talk to me anyway.

BUT, I wasn't really a “geek” either. I didn't fit anywhere and found myself having a great time at home where I was comfortable. My interests are often the opposite of most people and I'm OK with that. I LOVE being weird and enjoying myself because it's so much better than doing something I don't want to do just because everyone else is doing it. Luckily peer pressure has never been a problem for me because I just do not give two shits if you're all downing shots of vodka and I'm drinking ice tea.

I never tried to fit into a box because it was tiresome and boring and it didn't interest me.

I don't care if I don't have evening plans, even on a Friday or Saturday.

I don't care if everyone goes out and I don't feel like it.

I don't care if everyone is reading Twilight and I'm reading some indie lesbian book in the corner of the library.

I don't care if you don't like what I like because I'm still going to like it.
