As a child I find it is important to be able to notice the little things that make us different from the crowd and embrace it. That’s the start of personal discovery and growth. Finding the colors that make the soul smile and accent ourselves with it until we’re satisfied.
Nowadays it’s so common and normal for everyone to have, style, look and coordinate with someone’s standards of what’s acceptable that we lose ourselves in the thoughts of I cannot do, speak and especially dress in my own way because I don’t want to step too far out of what’s been taught as “my own personality”. Crazy, huh?!
You know what’s just as crazy? Teaching that same uncomfortable situation to the next generation and scolding the 1% that refuses to adapt. Heartbreaking, huh?
You know what sucks even more? Going years practicing a forced personality you’re told you should have and paying someone to help you find yours buried inside of you. Uuugghh! That hurt! 😔 😞 😢
