Mind Boggle

Haha my blog is now on the RIGHT side because I felt like being a punk! Don't be afraid to rebel! Conformity is evil.
Okay. Done with that. Conform if you want. Know what's weird? Saying "Don't succumb to peer pressure." because, either way, you're succumbing to peer pressure! Peers pressure you not to succumb to peer pressure. So, if you don't succumb, you succumb. MIND BLOWN!! It's so crazy! 

Labels are for filing.  Labels are for clothing.  Labels are not for people.  ~Martina Navratilova

I rather like this quote. It's super cool but makes me wonder.. Why do all humans feel the need to be labelled? Or, more importantly, to rebel against labels? My generation are all "I am real. I am 100% unique. You can't label me." and then they turn around and call themselves "scene" and "hipsters" and whatever label they feel like. 
It's just strange. And I'm guilty of it, too. But, why are labels a bad thing? We are who we are. You're comfortable in your own skin, right? So why should you care what people label you? Because you label people. And sometimes they're meaner than "scene" or "hipster". We're so quick to label girls as "whores" and "skanks" and whatever else we want. "Bitch" is a common greeting nowadays. 
Now, I get that girls are self-destructive creatures. Whether we were hard-wired that way or it's a result of years and years of being told who we should be and what we should look like, I don't know. But we are. It's a fact. I've seen girls who can't weigh over 120 pounds, but they think they're fat. I see girls change relationships as quickly as they wash their hair.
Tons of makeup hide "ugly" girls. Actually, the ones that believe that they are ugly, are probably the prettiest. We post pictures of ourselves and say "ew, I look nasty!" (first of all, why did you post the picture if it was so nasty?) But secondly, you look gorgeous! Stop searching for attention. No matter how many boys call you "pretty" or "hot" or whatever else you want them to call you, it doesn't mean ANYTHING unless you believe it for yourself.
So, no. You aren't ugly. No, you aren't fat. No, your hair looks fine. No, that teeny zit that comes from raging hormones isn't the end of the world. It doesn't mean you should hide your face.
All in all, love your imperfections!! They make you who you are! Get over the fact that you don't look like Kim Kardashian. She's probably closer to a Barbie doll than a human. You want to look pretty? Try loving yourself first. Make yourself happy. Then you can start pleasing others.
Cindy Crawford is a famous model. However, even she has said "Even I don't wake up looking like Cindy Crawford."
If you aren't happy with your weight, stop starving yourself and bullying yourself. Do something about it. Start jogging, eat HEALTHY foods, drink more water! No, you won't look like Megan Fox. You never will. However, if you look like a happy version of who you are, you'll be as beautiful as Megan Fox.
So, ladies, stop it. Stop bullying yourself and beating yourself down. If you really do hate yourself as much as you claim to, seek professional help. If you actually like yourself but love being called pretty, stop seeking attention. There are girls out the who actually DO have problems. 
To quote Christina Aguilera, "'Cause you are beautiful no matter what they say
Words can't bring you down, oh no
You are beautiful in every single way."
Start feeling like you are. Love yourself

“Love yourself, for if you don't, how can you expect anybody else to love you?”
