I was talking with a friend this afternoon about my motivations behind style blogging, and why I look this way in general..
I am aware that, to some people [who don’t know me personally], it seems like an ego-driven decision, like this is all a cry for attention. And really, that assumption couldn’t be any further from the truth. This isn’t a phase I’m going through, nor is it a ‘show’.. I’ve been a total weirdo my entire life and I can’t imagine doing anything else. It just feels right.
This is not the ‘career’ my family wanted me to have. It’s not a huge source of income [however I don’t have to buy much anymore]. And it certainly does not mean I am, or am going to become, famous. I do it because I love it- my body is my canvas and I love to express myself through my appearance. I’ve been doing it for as long as I can remember [since I was 3]. To not do this would be lying, pretending to be something I’m not- to myself, and to the world.. and I just can’t do that. I’m proud of the things that make me unique.
I’m not offended by those who think otherwise- they [obviously] don’t know me. And I’m not going to waste my time trying to convince them. Those who care enough will take the time to get to know me, and those people, well, I’m happy to have a lot of them in my life. 🙂
My friends are awesome! <3
