I used to be one of those people who needed to fit in. I cared about what others thought of me and if they liked the way I was. I don't care anymore. The reason why i don;t care is because i wasn't happy when i pretended to be something i wasn't. So I decided to show my true colors and see how it would turn out. Surprisingly, everyone one loved my style and how the way I truly was. I felt free and felt like I can do or change anything. Of course there were still those people who judged me, but at least they judged who I really was and not who i pretended to be. Someone once said "you'll never know unless you try" and for this reason i rook it into consideration and i'm glad i did. For if i hadn't i'd still be faking to this day.
Don't be afraid to express yourself just because of what the people around you might think. You might actually think it's the greatest feeling in the world to let people know who you truly are and not have to be hidden behind a mask. Like elsa in frozen says "Let it go" (:
