Being yourself isn’t the easiest thing to do, especially if society and the people around you think quite poorly of the things you like and the people you look up to. Hey, a good example of this would be me liking a certain “boy band” (you can probably guess…). Okay, “like” is an understatement but still, you get the drift (I hope). The world is full of judgmental people these days and the internet is by far much worse. Perhaps it’s because you are behind a computer screen and people can’t see what you really look like, making them feel like they can say whatever they want. It’s sort of like having a mask… except… well, it’s a machine.
Anyway, I find it quite hard to be myself around people because I fear being judged. Trust me, it’s not a nice thing and we’ve all probably been there at some point in our lives. We face judgement everyday and sometimes it can even hold you back. You really shouldn’t let others affect who you are and determine what you’ll become (I’m sounding like a hypocrite here, haha).
“I’m beautiful in my way because God makes no mistakes.”
“I’m on the right track baby, I was born this way.”
Okay, that was lame and cheesy but you know what Gaga has said here is quite true! At times we may feel hopeless and full of despair (pretty much me all the time, I can’t talk) but you are who you are in the end. There’s no escaping that reality.
Oh, if you haven’t figured out who that boy band is from the title you must be a little slow…
Yeah… couldn’t make it anymore obvious than that! What can I say? They’re talented, charming and overall down to earth guys! Now, I’m a guy and society + the internet would disagree but you know what? Haters are going to hate!
Don’t be afraid to let your “true self” out of your inner sanctum. It doesn’t really matter what others think about you. It’s not like they control your life.
(Well, I’m just going to say that I’m being a huge hypocrite here because I am terrified of some people finding out about me and them, haha!)
