I’ve felt like this before. we care too much what people think. but it’s hard not to. but you know what? we care because we think they’re judging us, but they’re only judging us because they care what other people think too. it’s like this little circle the world has created and now we’re obliged to follow.
But if one of us can break free of the chain, then more will follow. let people be who they are, let them say what they want, let them be free to express themselves however they choose. who are we to judge them? who are we to change them?
If we all just stopped thinking “omg he’s/she’s so weird” or giving people those witchy “wtf” looks, we’d all feel so much more confident about ourselves. we’re taking away all the uniqueness our world needs by making people feel like they have to fit into this mold. screw what people should be, just let them be whoever they want to be.
