Unlocking my life...

This is my diary for the dear diary competition. My life is not very interesting but I hope that I can make it seem somewhat interesting in writing form.


2. Day 2

Dear Diary,

Why do we care so much about what people think of us? It's none of their concern what we do with our lives so why do we let others opinions affect us so much? There is so much that I have wanted and want to do in my life but I stop myself because I am so scared if what other people will think of me. I started thinking about this is dance class today. I like to give dances my all and really go for it in terms of performance but I hold myself back because no one else does it and what if I do something wrong and make a fool of myself? We were doing a dance today in my street dancing class and I am really self conscious about my body and my weight so I always stand at the back. I am scared that others will judge me as they are all so much slimmer than me, better skin than me and are better at dancing than me. This is not just in dancing but in all aspects of my life. 

I have found this to be the case for others that I know as well. I know that they are great at something and yet they hold back because that is what everyone else is doing. We conform far too much to the norms around us. We comply to what others think is good for us rather than thinking for ourselves and saying no. This is what I want to do and I don;t care what you think, I am going to do it. This should be the way of thinking that is encouraged. That no matter what you want to do you can do it if you work for it. If you don't care what others think of you then you can push yourself to be the best you can be.

I know this all sounds so cliche and I don't exactly follow this line of thinking myself but... this is who I want to be and this is advice that I wish some people would take. Don't go with the flow just for the hell of, just because it is the easier option. Just because that's what other people expect of you. Don't be scared to do what you want to do like I am and don;t compare yourself with others. Chances are there is always someone who is going to be better than you in something because you can't be perfect at everything. Everyone is different. Everyone has there own niches. This is something that should be accepted. You can better yourself and push past your fears however. Don't give up and go for the easiest option. Don't give up on your dreams just because someone tells you that it is stupid. 

Do what is right for you not for other people. Only you can do what's best for you.

So I don't know if my ramble will amount to anything but I feel better having written that down. I really need to follow that advice myself. There is so much that I have wanted to do in life that I have given up on or accepted defeat on. I should fight for what I want. Hell, no one else is going to do it for me, only I can shape me future. (Again cheesy and cliched, just role with it...)

Good night :)
