I Will Never Be Sorry for Who I Am

Updated: Mar 11


I remember when I used to want EVERYONE to like me as a person. Whenever I felt someone didn't like me, I would sit in my room and be sick to my stomach. I couldn't help but think "What can I do to make them like me?" "What can I change about myself?"

But over the years I realized something, NOT EVERYONE IS GOING TO LIKE YOU. People are not going to agree with your beliefs, or they are going to be mad at you, or they are going to be jealous of you, but at the end of the day, WHO CARES?! They aren't feeding you, they aren't putting a roof over your head. I've learned to love who I am, and to never even THINK about changing who I am to receive the approval of someone else.

I am done apologizing for being ME, and so should you.

We are all different for a reason. We can only be the best we can be and that's it. Stop trying to be like someone else, just because that may be what someone else wants. SCREW THAT AND SCREW THEM. DO YOU BOOBOO.

I will always own up to my actions. If I believe I am wrong, I will apologize. I will forever be an open minded person, but don't think you will ever make me feel bad for what I choose to do with my life and how I choose to control my life.

I have learned to go after what I want, no matter what. I guess you can say I have become somewhat selfish. I like to follow my gut, because I have learned that if I don't on certain things, I'll look back one day and wish I had done it.

I like to make bold beauty and fashion choices. I love wearing platform shoes and wearing outfits that show the body I work hard for. I don't like spending my money on designer things. I like to keep my outfits simple and affordable. THAT'S OK. Some days I like to wear bold lip colors... You know why? BECAUSE I CAN. Oh, but most of the time I like to wear little to no makeup!! And that's fine too!! Do what makes you happy!!

I have strong opinions on certain things. Other things I can care less about. I like to pick and choose my battles, but when I do choose them, I will fight it until death, and I won't give up. I will not stand for bullshit, lies, or ignorance. I will likely call you out if you are being ridiculous, because I believe in being 1000% real, never fake.

I make choices that might be unpopular, and even if they are popular, that is not why I choose what I choose.

Sometimes, I care too much, because at the end of the day, I still have a huge heart. I was taught to be loyal to those who are loyal to you, and always be respectful. People sometimes think my maturity for weakness, but they are sadly mistaken.

I'm an open book, I have no problem telling people things about me, because I feel like I have nothing to hide.

I chase my dreams, even when my dreams are sometimes near impossible. I am always pushing myself to be better and better, and I put myself down when I feel like I haven't reached my full potential.

At the end of the day, I want my readers to know that I am happy with who I am. I am not perfect, but no one is. Not everyone is going to like you, but if you like yourself, that is honestly all that really matters at the end of the

day.
