We live in a weird world.
A place where trends come and go, and sometimes they strike too hard. However, what I’ve seemed to notice was the “traits” some people give themselves. So let me make a few things straight:
Not all of you are depressed or schizophrenic. Not all of you are punk rock or grunge. Not every person is an attention-seeker. Not all of you are suffering from anxiety. Not all of you hate people. Not all of you “trust no one”. Not all of you are not white girls [and yes I know you love Starbucks]. Not all of you are fashion divas. Not all of you are photogenic. Not all of you are bookworms. Not all of you enjoy the same music. Not all of you are addicted to drugs. Not all of you find comfort on the Internet. Not all of you have artistic talents. You don’t have to smoke or act dumb or party or get drunk or even curse to be accepted. Just stop pretending to be something you are not, and start showing the world who you are.
I know that deep down inside is a hippie, or a metalhead, or a Lana Del Rey fan, or a football addict, or a writer, or a poet, or at least someone who’s real. And definitely wonderful. Just be yourself.
