Okay, so I really love this sweater dress.. besides the fact that it is extremely comfortable, the reason I bought it was solely because of the two words it displayed: Be Weird.
There are truly no words to describe how important I think it is to embrace our differences and to, yes… be weird. For a long period of time in our lives, we are so concerned with what others are doing and we are constantly trying to fit in with everyone else, but then almost overnight we strive to be different and start embracing who we really are. Of course, on the journey to find ourselves, people will tell us (yes even the people we love) what we’re doing wrong, or that they think we’re wasting our time, or that we’re not good enough or that we’re weird, strange, or that we try too hard, but the truth is none of that should matter. None of that should ever matter.
I mean, realistically it’s hard ignoring other peoples comments, it really is, especially if you’re someone like me and those comments stick with you days on end. But over the years I’ve learned something, something very important… It’s not worth it to react. Don’t start a fight, don’t say some rude comment, don’t go off crying… don’t do anything. Because holding our end is what will make us stronger, wiser, happier and most importantly will make us the better person. So be an artist, a singer, a doctor, a nurse, a dentist, a nerd, a cheerleader, an actor, a model, a designer, a writer, a dancer, a director, a student, a teacher, an entrepreneur, a soldier, or whoever, but be the best version of you… be weᴉrd.
