As I’ve grown up, I’ve noticed how hard it is to be in the “in” crowd. I could never fit in no matter how hard I tried. I could never be cute enough, slim enough, or messy enough. Not all cliques are bad, but many I’ve seen wants you be a certain way and be what they want you to be. That’s not cool.
I always have been taught to be myself and do what’s right. How could I fit in with a group that would never follow those same morals? Don’t get me wrong, I have lowered my morals before just to have
friends. I did some things that I shouldn’t have just for the sake of the clique, but over time I have woke up.
“None of this is me. I’m not like this.”
I realized that the things I allowed myself to take part in was wrong. I realized that these cliques won’t mean much of anything to me in a few years. I learned to be one with myself and others. Surround yourself with positivity and love. You shouldn’t have to change your morals simply for friends. The “in” crowds have their own issues that you can’t see on the surface. Your values are more important than any companionship you can receive. When you feel they are crossing a boundary, you should leave because you have to love yourself enough to know when it’s not worth it. You can stand your ground respectfully, and if they don’t accept it, then they aren’t really that cool are they?
Be yourself. Love yourself.
