Today things are getting real.

I realized something.

Something BIG.

When I read it, I was changed.

I started to think about my potential.

Here it is.

..not everyone needs to like you..

Yep. 

It's true.


I think it's easy to see I admire a lot of people on the world wide web. I mean after all, I have a blog and most bloggers are young moms. I obviously am not a young mom.  So it just came naturally to admire and look up to those other ladies.

And let me tell ya. Those ladies are something special. 

Sometimes in High School you get caught up in what everyone thinks about you. 

"Oh, I can't post that on Instagram because, I posted a picture yesterday!" "I didn't get 274 likes. I am not cool at all." "Take that selfie again, I look ugly!" 

Believe it or not, that has definitely come out of my mouth. And it comes out of a lot of people's mouths my age.

It's easy for me to want to be like those young-mom-bloggers. They post whatever they want on Insta and it's somehow acceptable. They have the cutest babies, they're married and have a house they decorated all by themselves.

 I want to be just like them.

I get this energy after looking at these lady's profiles and blogs. I feel like I can do anything. 

...and then BOOM. 

I realize I am in High School. 

"I can't post that, they will think it's weird!"

"Why do I even have a blog, it's not like people my age actually read it."

....

That feeling. The feeling where all of a sudden I feel like I've hit rock bottom. This feeling stops me from doing and saying so many things that I later regret. 

I found out today that 

..not everyone needs to like you..


It hit me like a ton of bricks. Almost as if I went my whole life seeing black and white and suddenly I opened a door that, inside had nothing but color.

So today I am going to change.

I am going to post what I want to post,

Share my blog posts online..without even hesitating

I am changing.

I'm not going to let those people that may not like me, hold me back from me being me.

High School will end one day.

One day none of those people's opinions will matter.

And I will regret all of those chances I didn't take.

Not everyone needs to like me.

And I'm okay with that.

Here's to loving my #selfie.

  1. I love this. It should be every blogger's (and every persons) motto! But it definitely applies very well to bloggers. When I first started blogging I wanted to be just like the bloggers I looked up to. I even tried so hard to be like them. I was working so hard to be something I wasn't it was exhausting. So finally I realized this and now I do what I want with my life and blog and life is so much better.

    p.s you are so ridiculously cool for a high schooler ;) I'm a bit jealous! I was nothing like you in high school!

  5. I really needed to read this. It's so true...and I find it extremely easy to relate to. I have those thoughts a lot. I see some of those bloggers, and everything about them seems perfect! Everything down to the creativity of their blog name. In fact, posting the link to my blog in my personal Instagram account's bio was even hard for me! Because I kept having an ounce of doubt, like what if someone from school sees this, reads it, and just thinks I'm so weird or an insane "all she thinks about is church" person? I feel like I need to monitor carefully what I post, because what if people don't like it? But it doesn't matter. And this post clearly emphasizes that. Love it :)
