I’m losing that fear that I’m going to get made fun of that still burns from high school. I’m doing makeup in ways I’ve been wanting to but have always thought, “No, but what if someone says something.” I’m looking for clothes that make me feel comfortable and represent myself.
And I’m finally truly grasping that I can have different styles and still be me. I can dress in my ratty beat up boots and tousle my hair and do my makeup like a rocker one day and follow it up in my kitten heels, kill her red lips and a delicate dress the next. I am not in the same mood everyday and I shouldn’t have to dress myself or do my makeup like I am just because people assume you have to fit one image.
If anyone would like to say anything negative about that, they can write it down and read it every morning instead of talking to me. I’m done carrying the weight of other people’s expectations when they hold no value in my life.
