I think that a lot of teenagers today have a low image of themselves implanted in their mind. And that can be for a variety of reasons, I cannot really define you, only you can do that.
I think that the internet has a lot to do with that, now, don't get me wrong, I love the internet, I spend more time on the internet than I should but that doesn't mean that it has its negative sides, after all, everything has a negative side.
I love tumblr. tumblr is an awesome place that allows you to put out the things you love so that they can all be on one place, your blog. It allows you to see all sorts of pictures, it can be inspiring, funny, fun and all sorts of things, you like tumblr for your own reasons. Something I don't like about tumblr, is the way some people think on there.
1) my computer screen is brighter than my future.
I know that many people just find that funny and reblog it for the heck of it, but there are people that agree with that statement and I think that it is not right to live with that mindset. Your future is in your hands, and no matter who tries to stop you, you have to keep moving forward, you have to show the world what you're made of and who you can be, what you can accomplish, and that you can do it with or without help. You have so much potential trapped inside of you, don't sit around on a computer all day and put your homework to the side. Now is the time to begin the transformation of who you will be, and you won't get anywhere joking about not going anywhere in life or with your future.
2) when a cute guy has low standards. *insert a picture or gif of a smiling girl or someone looking as though they have achieved success or a goal*
No one will ever know how much this bothers me. when a cute guy has low standards !!!!!!!!??????!!!!?????? NO. You do not walk around thinking you are "low standards" walk around knowing that you are "high standards" because you are an awesome person. I do not care what you look like, what your shape is or the color of your hair, is it long or short, curly or straight (wavy? that's cool too) No matter what you look like you are unique and amazing and if you walk around thinking that you aren't good enough for a guy then you have to do some serious work. Don't walk around trying to grab the attention of a guy, walk around for yourself, walk around like you know you rock, because you do. Believe in yourself, you don't have to look like someone else to think more of yourself, just be you and that is good.
Those are just two things that are at the top of my head at the moment, I'm sure there are a few other things that bug me but that's all I can think of now (hey, it's been a long school day don't judge, pal).
Also, all those guys on social media, yeah it's totally fine that you think they are attractive, totally fine that you have a crush on them and you see the good in them and you want to defend them and all that, but don't go on sending death threats to people who have a different opinion than you. I love certain artists, and don't even get me started on how many times I've heard people saying mean things about them. Brush it off, don't say anything, as tempting as it might be to tweet someone some nasty comment because they said something about that guy you watch on Vine or YouTube or whatever, don't do it.
And don't let those same guys belittle you. Sometimes they talk like they could do anything or get anything with the snap of their fingers, and even if that is the case, don't go too crazy in doing things for them. You might not know the real them. Don't let guys make you feel like you're worthless, or that you're not attractive if you don't dress a certain way or if you don't do things a certain way. You are you and you're going to do things the way you stinkin want to do them because it is your life and your comfort and your body.
So, if you're a girl, BE AN AWESOME GIRL.
Because I used to be afraid of doing things because of what others might think or say about me, but I don't care anymore. I dress how I want to dress and I choose to do what is best for me. NOW GO DO SOMETHING AMAZING OR SOMETHING.
