Too many of us care too much about what people think about us. The only person’s opinions that should matter, is your own. We spend too much time not being ourselves for whether it is for someone else, society, your family, whoever it may be, stop! In the end, you have to live with yourself not them. If you met yourself, would you like you?
In middle school, it was all about having fun and being who you are. High school was where you found what you liked and what you didn’t like. High school is also a place where you just wanted to fit in, so you changed and hid some things about yourself. College, no one cares what you do and no one cares what you’re like. People that are alike become your friends and nothing else matters.
Being a teenager can be hard because you always feel like you have to impress someone or make them proud. In college, you need to impress yourself and be proud of who you are and who you want to become. If you are in high school who is trying to figure themselves out, just know that there is way more beyond just the high school walls. Adventure out, seek new possibilities, and don’t be afraid to make mistakes because they are simply inevitable.
We are human, we were put on earth to make mistakes. We make mistakes and we learn from them. One of my many mistakes was not being myself to fit into a certain group of people. Be yourself, you are the only one who has to live with yourself everyday. We have to live with ourself our whole life, I hope it’s someone you like.
