How many times did you got the bus and people looked at you like you were an Αlien? How many times had you notice unknown people on the road look at you leeringly ?
It happens to everyone who has an alternative style. It happens also to me People are getting used to to see around the common,just think a little bit this: every time a new item is getting a trend, more and more girls want to get it. It could be anything,a choker top,a couple of overknee boots or a jean. Every average trendy girl who has as role model Kardasian sisters want to have too what other girls have. Their way of thinking is “I want this too”
Here its you, my darling, who want to be different from the mainstream fashion. Your style, no matter if it is Goth or Pin Up or Kawaii, you differ from others .So… first of all you have to accept into you and think carefully if this is something you really want.
For instance dont dye your hair pink if you still hesitate about how to get out of your door because people will laugh with you. You have to be sincere to yourself about how you want your style look like and what message you pass to the others. When you already have thought all these things and you came to the conclusion that an alternative style express your true self , you have to be prepared to face the consequences and mainly people’s reaction.
Are you ready to support your clothing choice and fight for your style?
If yes,everytime someone say something on you about the way you dress, just keep on your mind these:
1- You wear that makes you feel happy ,stylish and comfortable. If you like the way you look like, DON’T GIVE A FUCK!
2- Your style express your personality. If someone tries to change your style, he/she tries to change you. People have to accept you as you already are. It doesn’t worth to change in order to like to someone else. If he/she doesn’t like the way YOU dress, its his/her problem.
3- You can keep your style and be a professional at the same time. If your hair is blue or you have many tattoos, it doesn’t mean that you are not productive on your work. Only narrow-minded people think in that way.
4- No matter If you are 20 or 30 or 40, single, married either a mother, you can keep your alternative style as you grow up. It is you, but you are older. Maybe as you re growing up you will develop your style but it doesn’t mean you have to be another person . Mothers worth to wear Νew Rock boots too!
5- Have faith to yourself . Claim what you want and prove to the other that you can be good no matter what you wear. You can be a very good student, either a teacher, or a mother ect. Show your personality and prove them that we MUST NOT judge a person from the appearance.
This is the way I m thinking about my style and myself. Trust me , I have accepted very bad criticism about my appearance, but I I have not regretted for my style. I chose to dress with an Alternative way since my 14 years and now I have to say only this :
I WILL BE “NORMAL” ONLY WITH A LOBOTOMY .
