SOCIETY

If you don't eat, you're anorexic if you do eat, you're a fat ass.
If you don't wear makeup, you're ugly. If you wear makeup, you're a fake.
If you're loud, you're annoying; if you're quiet, you're weird.
If you're good in school, you're smart; if you say something wrong, you're stupid.
If you take pictures, you're an attention-whore; if you don't stalk your friends you're not cool.
If you wear sweats, you're underdressed; if you wear a dress, you're overdressed.
If you don't have boobs, no guys like you; if you have boobs, they're fake.
If you don't have a boyfriend, you're a loser; if you have one, he's cheating on you.
You tell us to be who we are but then you go and judge us about it. So now, do you see how hard it is for us to just be ourselves?

    Isn't it awfully fun living in a society that completely contradicts itself? ;)

    I will agree with Tristen on this one. When you get to the point in life where neither compliments or insults faze you much, then you have reached the middle way, and you have a chance to become who you always desired, all you need is courage and faith in yourself. hugs vie

    ..."Makes Me Think In Part Of An Movie From The 80's I Believe Called, 'Can't Buy Me Love,' With Patrick Dempsey, My Dear Precious Priceless Friend *.* Wherein At The End Of The Movie His Character Said, 'Your Side Their Side Our Side My Side, Man, That's *ullshi*, Its Hard Enough Just Trying To Be Yourself' ˜ Knowing Where We Are & What Is Inside This Flesh, Hey, 'Its All Good' .... I Love Your Verse For It Holds Much Truth & Light, 'Luv,'" Tristen :)
