Recently I have received a lot of flack about not “fitting in” with other girls. The sad part is I thought I was “fitting in.” For as long as I can remember I have always felt like an outsider. Making friends was never my strong suit.
Some people would label me as “quiet” but my close friends and family know that is not the case at all. I’m just more of a “mind your own business” kind of gal. If I have something to say I will say it with no hesitation. I’m not afraid to stand up for my self or what I believe in. With that being said if you get to know me I will talk your ear off.
It probably doesn’t help that my face in its natural resting state doesn’t look all that pleasant. I have been told this since day one before RBF was even a thing. I could go on and on about how I’ve never fit in to the “average girl” world, but honestly I don’t care. I’m not average and I’m proud of that and if you’re finding your self in the same shoes you should be too.
It took me a long time to learn this but you will never make everyone happy. Someone, somewhere is always going to have something negative to say. So instead of busting your butt trying to get everyone else’s approval focus on your self. Are you living a life that you look forward to in the morning? Are you happy with your self when you go to sleep at night?
At the end of the day you’re the one whose happiness is truly important. So go on listen to that band no one else likes, settle in for a night on the couch instead of a night on the town, share your unpopular opinion; let your freak flag fly! Above all though know this: you are not alone. There are many other girls out there that prefer the company of animals to people, that would rather sit on the couch and read a good book than watch TV, that would prefer to spend a day driving cattle than at the spa. Embrace your difference and be happy with who you are. Don’t let anyone tear you down.
