The Square in the Circle

That’s kinda how I look at how I fit in my world… There are all these cliques (or circles) and here I am with my pointy edges (lol). There used to be a point in my life when I didn’t find that funny at all, but in the midst of growing up, I’ve grown to like the fact that I never felt like I fit “in” even though I was usually always accepted. I wasn’t one of those kids that got picked on or nothing like that, I actually almost always got along with everybody, I just didn’t see myself being like my surroundings. I used to think that was a bad thing.

I have always been very observant. I noticed during my school days the same kids with the “I don’t care what nobody thinks, I’m my own person attitude” didn’t have the disposition that agreed with their words. Though they screamed and boasted in their alleged uniqueness, they looked jjst like all of their friends. It’s funny because it seemed like I would always be the person that would talk to these same people on a one on one and they’d confess how they didn’t wanna be the way they presented themselves. It was a sad thing to hear.

I find it interesting in our culture how so many people desparately try to fit into a mold that those who are “in” are secretly trying to sneak out of. People live as if being called different or weird is a death sentence and they would rather die from other causes than to labled such a thing. That makes my heart ache at times. More so when I see it in little children. Sometimes I envy children when they are at that age/stage where they don’t know what “in” is and all they know how to do is be. I’m striving to get back to that. I don’t want to be one of those sad confessions that live a life as someone I am not and do not want to be. You should never have to explain to anyone what “type” of person you are, it should be evident. I am learning what it is to be comfortable in my skin and embrace my imperfections, and to truly know how to love myself. I hope you seek this path as well… because you’re beauty darling!

-Signed, L7… and you’re free to be you 🙂

Cause I got a couple dents in my fender/Got a couple rips in my jeans/Try to fit the pieces together/But perfection is my enemy/And on my own I’m so clumsy/But on Your shoulders I can see/I’m free to be me”

Smile Anyway

  1. Dang. I didn’t know that you owned a blog! I will visit more often!

    I think it’s important for everyone to embrace who they are. The problem with society is that too many people try to conform to the way other people are, instead of being themselves. They often lose themselves in the process and forget who they are, where they came from and where they’re going. I continue to be myself everyday of the week because there isn’t a way in the world people could confuse my behaviors etc if they always remain the same.
