I’ve always been the kind of girl who was just simple, natural without the need to use makeup or try too much to look pretty to feel good and special. And I love being this kind of girl. Also the few male friends I’ve had have told me the same, that I was weird(in a good way) and cool because I wasn’t like the majority of other girls. Because of this, I took the role of the simple weird girl even more serious. I was completely fine with always dressing the same, not girly, with just using eyeliner and my natural hair. I felt that if I changed some of that, I wouldn’t be considered weird and cool anymore. I would simply be like the others.
When I started in 8th grade, my first year in a public school, I dyed fuchsia my hair ends. At that time, that wasn’t so common like now, and it was very very fuchsia. Besides the fact that the first day of school I almost got sent back to my house because of it, a lot of people kept complimenting my hair and the whole school knew me as “the girl with the pink hair”. Me being the contradictory person I am, even though I’ve never liked having attention, it was cool that people noticed me for my pink hair. I had my hair like that until I was in 10th grade that I finally decided that I wouldn’t let my hair define me. I would not longer have nothing special but it was time to make a change.
It has always been hard for me to make these kind of changes, over the years I’ve been becoming more and more normal. But that’s what i want to say with this post. We don’t need to have a certain style our entire life, it’s completely okay to try new things. The other day, for the first time, I used makeup, I put BB cream on, filled my eyebrows, used lipstick and did my hair. I don’t like eye shadows or mascara so I kept it very simple, but it was a change. I felt so good. I also tried to dress nice.
Because I am a “simple girl” I felt guilty and bad for sometimes want to look nice and neat. But I decided that that is not who I am, if I want to feel pretty for a day, I ;m going to do whatever I can to feel that way. If that day I feel like dressing girly, I will try it. If other day I feel more rocker, then I will try it too. You should dress how you feel like that day. Don’t let a certain style limit you from other things.
There’s nothing wrong with making changes and trying new things with your appearance. I understood that already.
I will always be a “simple girl”, but in my own way.♥
