“Are you one of the beautiful people?
Is my name on the list?
Want to be of the beautiful people, wanna feel like I’m missed.”
Lyrics from the song, Guest List by Eels
Trying to fit in: I try. I try. I try. I fail. I grew up, I tried again. I failed again. I gave up and held myself content with not standing out. At some point you come to realize that you will never be on “that” list. And you know what?
Most day’s I’ve come to accept myself as a beautiful freak.
When you stop trying to fit into some predefined list, a list created by other people – you can start to fit in with you. You don’t need to run after the latest trend, whether that be the latest fashion trend, the latest food craze or the latest online hashtag trend.
“You do you. I do me.”
And while “you do you, I do me,” is not originally my slogan, it’s a pop culture trend I can get behind.
