Misfits?

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

It’s a really weird thing to think about- fitting in. To be honest I don’t think I fit in, if you don’t do what other people do then they don’t except you. Simple. But honestly I couldn’t care less. I guess I’m writing this for the people who feel like crap because of this because honestly a few years ago I felt like a freak because I felt I didn’t fit it. I think I would have loved to read someone writing that it doesn’t matter.

I’m not a loner, I have friends- amazing friends. I’m glad that I don’t fit in with everyone else because then I would have lost myself. My friends accepted me for me and I love them for it. It feels so much better to be loved for yourself rather than what people want you to be.
If I wanted to fit in with the other people then I would have been everything I hate. Seeing the people that others would love to be really makes me wonder- what is so great about them? I guess in school it’s the thrill of being popular that people strive for.

Movies, society and the media make you feel like its everything I fit in but the way it’s portrayed is inaccurate. There are the nerds, the geeks, the sluts, the fakes and the jocks- and that’s it no in between or individuality. Just these labels your stuck with and that’s it.
No. You are your own person and you are so much better then these cliques and labels and don’t ever change. It’s almost like a puzzle, you lose a few pieces and it takes a while to get it but when your finished its a relief. High school is like a big pathetic puzzle.

Even in my family my parents call me the “black sheep” because they are all so much different from me. I’m not like them- they find it weird that I enjoy reading. I honestly don’t mind, I like being me.

I don’t fit in with these people, a lot of people won’t. You can change your hair, your name and reputation but honestly is it worth it?
If you don’t fit in with these people it’s not to say you don’t fit in anywhere. But honestly I don’t get the amazement with fitting in because it just means your like everyone else. I’d rather be my own person and never be sorry or regret it.

I think everyone belongs somewhere and I think you owe it to yourself to find out where. Or maybe you would just find a group of misfits or “freaks”.

Labels

“Labels are for filing. Labels are for clothing. Labels are not for people.”
― Martina Navratilova

It’s amazing, words. One word has so much power. Words have the power to hurt sometimes even kill. Who was the person who said sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me? And seriously what was he/she smoking?
They affect everyone, people are branded like cattle because of these words. Ugly, stupid, bitch- everyone’s been called it and most of the time for no particular reason.

I honestly don’t believe in labelling people because I know what it feels like.
Labels, stereotypes, whatever you call them. It changes people after a while they it into these stereotypes and turn into these labels because they start to believe it. I’m not saying words are wrong but they can be used in a negative way.

Im a realist and I know that these labels will never stop but honestly don’t pay attention to them. I know it’s not easy especially if your in school because this is where they are most used. People can be vicious and if we forget about the people that bring us down then we can do whatever we want. I’m not saying its easy to but its worth a shot. If I was still scared about what people may say then I wouldn’t be writing this- I’m done being afraid.
