It's okay to like things that other people don't.

Something that makes me crazy is when people aren't themselves. I have posted about this so many times before. I go through phases I guess, and I should probably stop letting this bother me because it's never going to go away. It just makes me so sad to see people who don't know who they are .. and then they end up just latching onto the personality or life or ideas of someone else.
I can't even imagine how much that would suck. Seriously.
Everyone is different. It's better that way.
Sure, trends happen. Fads happen. Styles come in and out and some things are just popular.
It happens. And there's nothing wrong with that.
But for goodness sakes, that still leaves room to be a little unique.

I just wish everyone would:

say whats on their mind
dress how they want to dress
do what they want to do
love the things they want to love

It's okay to like things that other people don't.
It's okay to not like things that other people do.
Really. Thats what keeps things interesting.
Too many people are concerned with conformity.
Doing whatever it takes to fit in.
To not be noticed.
Or worse,
Seeing what makes others stand out and then using that same thing to make yourself stand out?
That doesn't count.
I know maybe it's hard, but it's not impossible.
Find what makes you different from everyone else. That's what makes you you.
Find that thing and embrace it.
Wear the ugly shoes.
Listen to that strange song.
Realize you don't actually like the new Katy Perry song, and don't be afraid to admit it.
Eat that odd food.
Wear that unknown perfume.
Listen to that old song.
And stop worrying about what everyone else is doing.
Okay thanks. =)


  1. YES. Why don't people understand this? It's exasperating and a tiny bit infuriating.
