Today I spent a lot of time thinking about what it takes to make people like you. "How do I get more likes on facebook? How do I get more followers? How can I get people to find me more likable, in general?" It's exhausting. I've spent my whole life fighting what I wanted to do and instead asked myself, "What could I live without doing, just to make my life a little bit easier, so people wouldn't judge me?" In this way, I would be able to avoid drawing attention to myself. Do you see the problem with this thinking? When you manipulate your desires to fit societal convention or gain approval and acceptance, instead of doing what you want to do, you're denying that you are worth being looked at and being noticed as a person.So what if you want to dye your hair blue? So what if you have body hair? You like the same sex? The years I spent fighting my impulses to be different has now made me realize that you should follow what YOU want to do; what makes YOU happy. You think that by doing what will gain you acceptance, will make you happier. It won't. If you're open-minded and not hurting anyone, who's to say you can't experiment with what you like and don't like? People will *always* find something negative to say about you, but if you own your diffences and explore different fashions, music, people ..you earn a greater sense of self that NOBODY can punish you for because your differences are something YOU chose and what make you unique. You gain a greater sense of worth and pride in the things you like or wear or do. It's what makes you your own person. What I'm trying to say is, don't shape your interests on what you think will gain you approval, but instead on what will make you happy. Afterall, that will give you the most satisfaction out of your life; knowing that you took chances in discovering and creating the person you want to be and ultimately LIVING YOUR LIFE. Invest in loving yourself and your life because it's yours to live. Don't let anyone put you down for that.
