When you grow up in this environment, you are taught to lay low. That if you are a woman, you are less than man. If you aren’t a certain color, there’s something wrong with you. That if you’re confident, that makes you a bad person.That if you expose yourself, that makes you a slut. That if you show affection in public, that makes you selfish and disgusting. Society wants you to fit in and be just like them. And since a lot of people do.. once somebody shows their true self, people feel the need to criticize. When they find out that you’re confident, they want to kick you down and make sure that you’re insecure.
It’s difficult to remain positive in a negative world. There are so many beautiful people who think low of themselves.. They don’t realize how amazing they truly are. People are scared and jealous of you. They don’t want to feel like there’s competition, so they will try to make your life a living Hell.. because they are insecure themselves. If they’re not happy, they don’t think you should be.
People may speak up about Sexism and Homosexuality, but there will always be SOMETHING people want to judge and make a big deal out of..
In the end, it doesn’t matter what anyone else has to say about you. No matter what you do, there will always be someone out there who does not approve. What you need to decide is if this is all really worth it. If you really want to be a victim and allow society to live your life, or if you want to live your own and make the best out of it. To truly be yourself and make peace with that.
It’s okay to be confident. It’s okay to stand up for yourself. It’s okay to be a show-off. You’re not hurting anyone. If people have a problem with your positivity and your freedom, the problem is within themselves. They are the ones who need to open their mind and find beauty in being different. If everyone in the world was the same, life would be so boring. if people become content with reality, then there will be true happiness.
I understand that insecurities are difficult to overcome. It’s a work in progress. Don’t give up on yourself! Be who you are and the right people will come to you. And if people in your life do not accept you as you are, they don’t deserve you.
