Individuality—some people are always grasping to be unique, they think they are the only one like themselves and they want you to think so too. Still others are doing all they can to blend in, not stand out, in the crowd. They don’t care if you see them or notice them at all (in fact, they would rather you didn’t). They don’t care anything about the “freedom to be their own person”. No, they are desperately insecure with the person that they are.
Don’t Be Beautiful
They keep saying that beautiful is something a girl needs to be.
But honestly? Forget that. Don’t be beautiful.
Be angry, be intelligent, be witty, be klutzy, be interesting,
be funny, be adventurous, be crazy, be talented-
there are an eternity of other things
to be other than beautiful.
And what is beautiful anyway
but a set of letters strung together to make a word?
Be your own definition of amazing, always.
That is so much more important than anything beautiful, ever.
If you’re determined to be individualistic, there’s a chance you’ll stand alone. (By nature, that’s what the word points to—individualism, being independent, on one’s own.) But you know who else stands alone? The girl hunched in the corner hiding from life. It’s up to you to choose— stand alone and be true to yourself, confident in the fact that you are not living a lie OR you can conform to everyone else’s wishes, living trapped in the shell of someone else’s body. You can fit into the mold that society has decided fits right on you. You can be the human whose outcome someone else determines.
At the end of the day, you still have to go home and live with the person you have created…
Why not be someone that you love to be around too?
