I want to say that if your young and think you are rebelling from society by being in a fashion, type of music, or think your supposed to look a certain way to express yourself is being different or being genuine just stop. If your in any group that involves a look and music it means its the popular thing to do. Being genuine means being true to yourself inside, as well as being true to yourself as nature made you. If you hide behind makeup, haird dyes, or peers your really just showing a fear of being the natural you. You think you need enhancers, or something on you that labels or says your something. Then you get mad when people say your weird, or you can't get why, because you targeted yourself.
I use to be an alternative rocker, and liked underground hip hop, but I enjoyed love songs, and christian music as well.
Have you ever noticed once you are in that group they don't like other things you do, or you can't show you like those things. So what I am saying is you don't need to look different. Just listen to what you do. And if someone doesn't like your music tuff its the real world no one is supposed to like everything you enjoy. Thats the beauty of being a human being.
Stop thinking that because someone lifts weights their dumb, or have a small thing, btw thats a passed down myth that got mixed with people who use steriods. Or that jocks aren't smart. Or that people with glasses are nerds. Or that people that read comicbooks are nerds. That pretty girls are good women, or that ugly girls are better than pretty girls because they have low self esteem. That men with long hair are girly even though they don't have boobs or a vagina or men with beards are dirty even though they take showers. Or that a specific race is supposed to be in a specific musical genre. Or that they are supposed to be a stereotype. Let people be themselves. Don't make fun of people who are fat and don't speak well. A person that can speak well and sounds interesting can be really dumb but a good speaker, but the person with a bad tone, and doesn't have an interesting voice can be more intellectual and read more about subjects and have experience.
I want to elaborate more on this subject but then it would be too long. Hopefully you get the point. But most of all if your lifestyle involves hurting yourself because the style, or you think its rebellious then your really not being a rebel. A true rebel is like Jesus, Malcom X, Muhamid Ali, Cesar Chavez who went against oppression, their violators, and spoke their mind, and helped people. If you think you aren't worth anything. Then help people and prove that people need you. Your not worthless everyone here raced other sperm to get to that one egg. Your a winner just by that. You were the best out of millions going toward it. Yet now you believe others who told you that you can't. That your dreams are dumb, and you should do something else, that your dumb, weak, or whatever else. Be a true rebel and show them wrong. Then you can put it in their face, or prove to yourself that you aren't what they said.
