Hey y’all! One post down, and two to go. Let’s get this done. Well, let’s be honest, I have more than two to write today but I need to get two of them up today. Lol. I know, confusing. Welcome to the Freak Show. Lol. Sorry. Moving on.
Today, I wanted to talk about something that some people aren’t really willing to talk about, themselves and their downfalls. I am going to talk all about me and my attitude and why I am the way I am.
There is something that is very well know about me, I am opinionated and I don’t sugar coat ANYTHING. This puts me into a predicament a lot of times but it doesn’t bother me in the least. I am the person that you either love or hate, for most it is the later and I personally don’t really care. It is what it is.
I am who I am and that is fine by me. Growing up my grandmother use to say “if people can’t take you for who you are, then tough.” Even years later she is still right. I have a very close group of friends and that is because they are the ones that have taken the time to get to know me. They know that I don’t sugar coat, that I am crass and that I speak my mind. At times, this gets me into a lot of trouble but at my age, I am not changing.
My entire life people have put me into a box they thought I fit into but in reality, I don’t fit anywhere and I know that. I know that being me gets me into trouble. That not thinking before I speak usually makes me regret my words and that sometimes I hurt someone’s feelings without intending to. But it’s who I am. Never apologize for being you. NEVER.
Those few people that have taken the time to get to know me and don’t judge me for the little they witnessed in the beginning know that I have a heart of gold and that I am loyal to a fault. I will do anything and everything for those I love. They know that if they ask me the truth, they are going to get it because I don’t back away from it. People know that if you ask me if I said something, I won’t lie and I will tell you straight to your face. With the rise of social media and the internet, people are too afraid to be completely honest and I’m not.
There are a lot of people that have issues accepting who they really are but you can’t. You have to love you for who you are and realize this is who you are meant to be. Trust me it can be super hard but you are perfect the way you are.
People have told me that at times my honesty is refreshing and it is because as a society, we are no longer honest. We hide behind labels and being pc so we don’t upset the status quo but why? Why do we pretend to be people were not? Why do we pretend to care when we don’t? Honesty is said to be the best policy but then why do we hide behind our technology and don’t have the courage to stand up for who we are and what we believe in? I am not saying be nasty for the sake of being nasty but if someone hurts you, tell them. If you don’t agree with something, voice your opinion. If you feel something is wrong, make it right. Don’t sit by and not say something.
No matter who you are in life, it is important and you are perfect the way you are. You just have to be brave enough to love you for who you are. Follow your own path. Blaze a flipping trail and love you. I love me, and I have a ton of people who love me too. I try really hard not to talk about certain things because I know that my views would negatively affect my jobs and that is unfortunate.
Be proud of who you are! You are perfect just the way you are. If people don’t like you or understand you, there will be someone that does. Forget em.
