As I've grown older, I've become much more confident in my appearance and who I am. After tonight though, I really feel as though I can look back on high school in a better light all because of this one comment that the boy made (excuse the misspelling):
That one phrase: "but so cool at the same time" I feel changed my whole outlook on everything. So often we allow society to put labels on us. I fully admit that I never would have thought that I was cool if it weren't for this conversation tonight. Sure I didn't really care to be popular, but I still cared about how others viewed me. I felt that because I wasn't in that"popular" group, that I was instantly labeled as an outsider. However, I learned tonight that there will always be those people that secretly notice you for who you are and appreciate it. So be confident, don't care what the cool kids think, and do your own thing...someone may just be watching and applauding your efforts.
