Social media has a massive impact on everyone and everything, from little things like what shampoo you use (incase you want to snap a pic of that) to how people feel about their self image and sometimes it can all get a bit much.

A lot of my teen years where spent worrying about having the latest trainers or the most fashionable item of clothing, even if I didn’t even like it! Unlike many, I was never just given these things by my parents I always had to wait or earn it which made me want it even more! Looking back now I ask  myself why?! Why was this ‘stuff’ so important? Really what I wanted to wear was red skinny jeans with black stars on but that just wasn’t cool?!

I also have crazy curly hair which is constantly surrounded by a light frizz (by light I mean massive frizz in all directions that grows as the day goes on). I can’t even begin to tell you how many hours I have spent straightening and flattening my hair because no one else has this wildness about them? But why does it even matter? Now if you see me and my hair is smooth or doesn’t have this frizz about it, you will know it is a special occasion because girls, I have way better things to do in life than straighten my hair every half an hour.

So now we can ask ourselves why do these things matter, why do we all care so much about other people and what makes us look like the popular people because I would much rather live my life how I want to and I am sure that no one would even care if I did go out with my red star jeans and my crazy hair. We should all complement each other and be proud of who we are and what we like because really, we are going to be the only ones unhappy if we don’t! Being yourself is always better than being someone else and if I can do it you can too!

  1. Wonderful! Like you, some days I’m curly and some days I’m straight… depends on how much time and energy I have! I’d love to see your halo of curlifrizz though. Enjoy a beautiful week ahead.

  2. Ha, I totally relate. Especially with the hair straightening thing and self-image. In high school and university, I spent a good hour straightening my hair and shaving everyday. I would wake up at 4 a.m. in university to workout and be on time for my 8 a.m. class. Seven years out of college now and I’m finally freed from that mentality. I’m a bit of hermit but I like it and it works for me and I don’t care what anyone else thinks. I think we all have a place in this world and that phase, hopefully, just leads to individuality eventually.

  3. Awesome post! It’s a struggle always to be yourself in a world especially at a young age where you want everyone to like you. There will always be somebody who disapproves or dislike you for whatever reason. Can’t let it bring u down. Just keep being you πŸ™‚ great pics with your post too.

  4. Great read! I was just thinking of this myself. So many women dare to be what they think society wants to see them as. But we have to know and understand that we are beautiful just the way we are, being ourselves! Love this!
