So for like forever I’ve been that person who has been constantly concerned about what people think, not having enough friends, people not liking me and all of that jazz but recently I’ve come to terms with the fact that being like everyone else isn’t the be all and end all in life.
Sometimes you need to sit back and think about what you truly want and who you truly are and not pretend to be like everyone else just to fit in. It is completely and utterly okay to enjoy things that you enjoy which people may think is weird as heck or just look down at you for, but why hide things you like just so you fit in.
I thought when I started university two years ago that I’d make tons and tons of friends, go out tons and do what everyone says university is like; even though I still live at home. Yes, the first two years of my degree have been great but what university has made me realise is that it’s okay to be yourself and people won’t always like what you do or what you like or even you for that matter. But that is life. And the things that matter are if you’re true to yourself. If you don’t lie to yourself and act like you enjoy things just because other people do, you’ll truly find yourself.
I honestly feel that now I have gotten to the point were people’s opinion of me is no longer a concern of mine and with that said I can truly become me. It has been extremely hard to get to grips with but I have never been happier. Honestly, doing things for yourself and focusing purely on yourself, you can get to a point were you can just be truly yourself is something that is great to do younger on in life so that way you attract people who you want to be around and will keep beside you forever.
I haven’t got a clue where this ramble has gotten to but it is late at night and I wanted to write what I was thinking.
