Middle school was awkward for me, along with probably most of the human population. It’s such a confusing time. Your body is changing. You’re trying to figure out who you are and who you want to be. Trying to fit in.
Not many kids from my elementary school went to my middle school. I basically had to start all over again like kindergarten, only I had to deal with a confused body and acne at the same time. First day of middle school I noticed a girl that was in four of my classes. We became instant friends.
As time went on, we noticed we had so many differences. Different ethnicity, religion, political party. I loved Dr. Pepper. She loved Sprite. I loved country music. She didn’t. But in the end, it didn’t matter to us. We judged each other based off our hearts. We got along. We respected each other and our different beliefs. We weren’t tainted by the world and all the hate.
We need more of this in society. We’re all different. No two people are the same. That’s a beautiful thing
and should be celebrated. It’s okay if we don’t agree on everything. I’m not saying we all have to be best buds, have slumber parties, and watch Revenge together as we crush on Nolan. But we can treat each other with respect. We can love each other for our hearts.
It’s starts on the inside. You can’t change anyone around you. The only person you have the ability to control is yourself. So if you love yourself, respect yourself, and are proud of who you are, it will show. Others will see that.
This is what I wanted to show when I wrote Awkward Anonymous. I hope the message comes across. If not, I’ll have to try again. 🙂
