So stop acting like one. Just be yourself. Quit allowing people to write your story and write it yourself. You are not anyone else’s minion, you are a human being.
Colbie Caillat has a song out called “Try” off her album Gypsy Heart and it basically states that women and men don’t need to try so hard to impress people. Who cares what kind of clothes you have or how your hair looks or what kind of car you drive.
When you do things like shopping for the latest trend, do you like yourself? Are you actually happy or do you make yourself think you are? If what’s on the outside isn’t everything in this world, why would you make it your top priority? Quit living to make everyone else happy and live to make you happy. If you like certain clothes, wear them. If you like reading anime or cracking open a good book whenever, do it. That’s what makes you happy. Do what makes you happy. It’s not up to the rest of the world. Your happiness is not their choice. Stand your ground and walk your own path.
