When I was real young, I struggled being accepted by people around me. It felt as if I wanted everyone’s approval or validation. I wanted to fit in so bad. I wanted to be just like everyone else. I wanted to be “normal”. And then the years passed by. Wind the clocks forward. The gray hair and the wrinkles showed up. I can’t help but think how laughable it all was. How growing up is ridiculous in general. It’s amusing because now it’s completely the opposite. I am grateful that I don’t need anyone’s approval or validation to move forward with my life. Can you imagine being influenced by so many people in your decision-making process? Yuck! Who knew that it’s better it is to have your own identity rather than striving into something that you are not. And boy how we all laugh at the idea how banal “normal” is. So here’s a message to all the kids out there who felt the same way I did a long time ago. It’s ok to feel that way. That’s normal. Those negative feelings are all in your head and they’ll go away the moment you realize one thing: that you’re special. Just like me, bitches! Limited edition, one of a kind... 😂😂❤️❤️❤️

    You chose fashion, it’s the best place for all the black sheeps of the past to unite and shine. The wilder the better, because being different is what creates fashion. Most people from fashion knew they were different no matter where they grew up.

    I remember the moment I decided I was no longer going to ask others what I should do. Such an important realization! Depending on the approval of others is exhausting.

    Totally!! I love getting older and not caring. I used to be so afraid to make a “fashion faux pas” 🤣🤣 and now if I like it, I like it! So much easier 😄

    If only our culture would support this simple message...but no. Western culture still bombards us with images of youth, thinness, perfect teeth, botox perfection. Kids want approval from their peers, and their peers are subjected to the same brainwashing. Teen suicide has skyrocketed with the advent of social media. More pressure to win approval. Normal sounds pretty good right now. (whatever normal is.) ❤

    I so wish it was possible to realise these things earlier in life... one of a kind is a better goal than blending in. 🖤👍
