I get shit all the time that I am conceited, that I am overly confident. I’m like do I have a high level of pride in myself? Yes. Am I vain? No. I but in society no one loves themselves anymore. My mother told me that people are jealous of me that is why they are making fun, or bothering me or whatever. I went with that before, but the more I look at the situation it’s more that I notice people have insecurities, they dislike something about themselves. I am not perfect; I have never claimed to be. What I claim is that I accept myself through and through, scars, stretch marks, big thighs, and all. I am who I am and I wouldn’t want to be anyone else. I like to accent my best features. I dress nicely, maybe over dress to most people and this is when I get the questions. “Who are you trying to impress?” “Why are you so dressed up?” Why not? I am in love with myself, I know and I mean know that I am one of a kind. The thing I had to do is stop listening to them. Let them hate, form opinions, think whatever they want. Those are their opinions. Just as everything I write is my opinion. The only thing I know is what makes me feel good. Conceited or not.
As we all know people are going to hate. Why? Because they can, they have nothing better to do, they don’t like themselves. Whatever the reason it is going to happen. The thing is that you have to try to avoid focusing on that and not let it deter who you are. I have some friends who like to tell me to, “just do me.” It wasn’t the first time I had heard the saying, but it was the first time that I thought about it in reference to myself. However, through, “just doing me” I have noticed more opinions, questions, negative attitudes and jealousy.
You will think what you will. I may be self-involved which may be a terrible flaw to many, but I am also loving and caring and will go to lengths for my people. So if you are afraid to be yourself because of another person’s opinion you have to forget all of that and remember that it’s none of their business. They aren’t you and don’t have to live your life. Let them do them and you do you. It’s simple. So are you going to push a new limit today or stay neatly in a conformed box because someone might question you? I would rather stand out and be different. Screw conformity.
