I've watched people for a long time now, and I always find it interesting how much people care about how others look at them, or how another thinks about them. They don't put into themselves any particular notion or interest, but only arrive in ideal of themselves-based on opinions formed by another.
Why is that?
People's opinions change so often, and are most often so incredibly superficial or vapid that their very existence is nothing but a puff of smoke. They base how they think of you on how you dress, how you speak, what you look like, if you're doing the same things as them, or if you stand out completely. They can like you one moment, and then turn around the next and say you're the most idiotic person alive.
Which leads me to my point: what someone else thinks of you, doesn't matter. What you think of yourself, is what matters. Whether or not you're content, happy with what you wear, how you dress, how you look, the things you say-you should make all these decisions about yourself, FOR yourself, not for someone else. Those other people don't have to live with the consequences of your choices, your decisions or thoughts. They don't have to live with you 24/7-but you do.
You are your own person. You're not supposed to be a clone of everyone else you come across, but an individual, with your own feelings, your own way of doing things, and your own way of thinking. Don't just break down and do whatever everyone else is doing, or saying-just to have their respect or to fit into their circles. Because if they don't like you for who you are, then they won't ever like you for who you'll become, just another version of themselves.
At the end of the day, you still have to stand before yourself; you still have to think for yourself, dress for yourself, and don't ruin yourself for someone else. Be happy with who you are. Cause I am.
