“I’m not smart enough”
“I’m not pretty enough”
“I’m not skinny enough”
Everyone seems to have a problem with who they are. People complain about what they look like, their intellectual ability, their personality and more. However, they just don’t seem to realize that people will like you if you just be yourself. If you are loud, be loud, if you are obsessed with indie rock, be obsessed with indie rock, if you are shy, be shy. Stop being concerned with what other people think about certain characteristics. You shouldn’t feel like you have to be someone else because you will never know who genuinely liked you.
Obviously, I say this because I am extremely tired of people trying to act like something they are not. Because of the fact that I know what your personality is like, I can tell when you are doing certain things for attention. It is also obvious why you are doing the things you are doing. Popularity may be very important to a regular teen in high school, but having friends that genuinely enjoy your company should be more important.
I say this with caution because if you have a tendency to lie, cheat, gossip or back stab, it is preferred that you fix those bad habits.
