Here's a confession, I find it rather difficult to relate to most people.
Usually I feel like I'm such an old soul to be relevant to people my age. Sometimes I feel like being a nerd weird others out. Often my emotions get too extreme only few would understand. On most days, I feel that my morals can seem too rigid. Or possibly, my thoughts frighten others, whether it be bizarre, witty, or grim.
Whatever the case, I find difficulty in expressing myself in reality. I have this tendency to enclose myself in a shell for fear of prejudice --- which really shouldn't be the case, though natural and understandable --- but gradually (and I absolutely mean gradually) I'm learning to step out of my comforts and crack that shell open.
It's in the pieces of clothing and the lather of makeup where I can find a common ground with my peers. Appeal steals the attention of bystanders. Difference initiates curiosity in acquaintances. Little compliments spark a conversation among friends. For me, dressing up can be as simple as wanting to look good and decent, yet as complicated as displaying a common interest with those sharing similar styles.
Other than passion, I continue to create content because maybe, I'm not as irrelevant as I think I am. I guess, you can say it's part of embracing ourselves in the best possible way, to present our identities, wholly and raw, as an essential substance of authentic living. To further elaborate, I end with this quote,
“You can either be judged because you created something or ignored because you left your greatness inside of you.”
Happy weekend, dear readers!
