Be real, Be you

Walking into a room full of people you don’t know can be absolutely horrifying.

Do I look okay? Is my hair a mess? Do I smell? Why are they all staring at me? Is there something in my teeth? Am I even wearing pants right now???? Wait, where are my pants?

Sorry, I got carried away, but you see where I’m going with this.

Today’s society is one big ball of judgement. No matter who you are or how you look, someone is judging you. If you think about it, it’s seriously intimidating. So, I’m here to tell you to just say, “F*ck it,” and be yourself.

You  can  will drive yourself crazy if you live your life to please others, because honestly, no one even knows what they want. That may sound confusing, but let me just explain myself.

Imagine you are in your own little bubble. No one can see you. No one can hear you. No one can judge you. What are you wearing? What kind of music are you listening to? What kind of accessories/games/other items of that sort do you have with you? What are you even doing in your little bubble? Are you writing? (like me) Taking pictures? Playing some kind of sport? Basically, what is your ideal bubble-world?

Whatever it is, make it real.

In today’s society, it is  so looked down upon to be yourself, and that’s sad. Every single day I see people putting others down based off of physical judgements such as, hair, makeup, clothes, etc. (I gotta be honest, it’s mostly girls, but guys are guilty too.)

If you want to wear a bunny suit, do it. If you want to dress like a fashion model every day, do it. If you want to wear a lot of makeup, do it. If you want to rock the natural look, do it. If you want to join PETA and be a vegan, do it. If you want to be a hunter, do it. Basically, do whatever you want.


Honestly, I don’t think I will ever find out the answer to that question (at least not any time soon), but until that time comes, don’t be afraid to just be yourself. Wear whatever you want, do whatever you want, and be whoever you want to be, and whoever hates on you for being yourself is a jerk who doesn’t deserve to know you anyway. The world is yours to explore, and it’s so much more fun when you stop trying to please others.
