What I Like About Myself

By KAYLAN ENGE

I have always had someone tell me that there is something wrong with me from my personality to the way I talk. After hearing other people tell me about what they don’t like about me so many times, I am finally learning to care less about what other people think (even though I’m still improving on that). Here are a few things I have heard: You act different than most people, I liked your hair better before you looked like a carpet head, I don’t like your goofy personality. 
 
At the time these statements and comments made me feel like  I should change these aspects about me. I remember constantly thinking that maybe my hair did look weird and that i should cut it or that maybe I should stop acting goofy and be more serious.  I use to take some of those comments to heart and felt bad about them.
 
Well here is what I have to say about that. I like a lot of things about myself. I like that I’m different because that means I’m not a carbon copy of someone else. I would rather be unique and be seen as different and liked for being myself than being liked for acting like someone else. Same goes for my personality. My goofiness isn’t always the best but it makes me and most of my friends happy which means it serves it’s purpose if it makes anyone smile. And last but not least I like my appearance. The way I look has never really been for anyone but myself. I don’t care if other people don’t like my hair or the jacket I wear because I’m not doing anything to offend or hurt anyone so there is no need for anyone else  to worry about me.

So I am happy with these things about me and there are definitely more things I like about myself but these are the things people tell me they don’t like the most.  So remember that you should be proud of who you are and don’t let anyone make you feel less than you are.
