You Are Beautiful.
I guess I just wanted to touch on the topic of being unique today, since it's something I think a lot about. It all started in early Jr. High, when I was friends with a group of girls that constantly were putting me down and taking their drama filled lives out on me every single day. (Thankfully I've now learned what a true friend really is.) During that time, I felt that I needed to dress and talk a certain way to please them. I now look back on it and realize wow, how could I have been so stupid?
One of my favorite quotes by the amazing Kurt Cobain says it all. "I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not."
I'm always telling my beautiful freaks (From my fashion blog) to be who they are in their style. Your style should reflect that. You only live ONCE. So what's the point of being someone else and following trends your whole life? It's a hard journey to actually being yourself wholeheartedly, and you will get hated on by more people then you ever imagined, but for me, it's totally worth it. Sure, I deal with people who judge and criticize me all the time for what I wear, what I listen to, who I am. And sure, sometimes it stings a bit. But I don't want to look back on life and regret being someone I'm not. Even if it's the little things like my fashion or what like.
So to those who wonder why I have a love for weird & unique people like Johnny Depp, now you know. I love them because they are the brave souls of our world. They are the people who have taken a leap of faith, even if it might have been scary at first. They are the ones I look up to most of all.
So friends, what do you think? I would love to hear your opinions on this topic.
