I do fear my words coming off as rude. There are so many different words in the world, and so many different ways to put them together. There are also so many minds in the world, that interpret things in different ways. Sometimes I just worry that the words I choose to say will transform themselves in an odd way, to say something that I didn't mean. Or that the person I say something to would mix my words up in their brain. So, I take great care to make sure that no word that I say will make someone feel bad. I've always thought caring about kindness is an important key to being well-liked, and I still think it is. But, it isn't as important as I thought it was. Not many of the very popular people take care to make their words kind, all the time.
I guess beauty and gracefulness might take part in like-ability. The people who hold themselves strong and tall in dance class. They hold their head high walking through the area, chattering with everyone. Not people like me, who wobble in a position, then fall to the floor.
The most important quality to be well-liked, I think, to be outgoing, loud, and funny. I find that the popular people are not afraid to yell their thoughts to the world, or laugh horribly loud. They're amusing and entertaining, and extremely silly. I don't really understand how they do it. I'm not really somebody who engages in silly activities, or who is really open with their voice. I'm more of a quiet introvert, and don't like to engage in those things. People have even thought me odd, because while the whole class was laughing really hard at some hilarious thing a popular person said, I was studying a textbook about grammar.
I've tried to be like the populars in a way- be loud, outgoing, and graceful- but I ultimately failed because the personality that I had to fit into to get noticed and get attention in my grade, was the complete opposite of the person that I am. It doesn't really matter how graceful, beautiful, outgoing, funny, or silly you are. Because you are you, and you should be proud of having your wonderful personality. In reality, well-noticed people aren't better than anybody else. I find it shameful that much of society gives more recognition to people who get lots of attention, than people who don't, but that's just the way it is right now. And, I happy to say, that I now take pride in the qualities that make up me. And it doesn't matter that I'm not one of the most popular students. I've recently realized, I don't need to be admired by everyone to feel good about myself. I've made great friends that do like my personality, and I've learned to accept that my introverted personality is me- and there's no way I can change it- so I might as well just stick with it, and love it.
I hope that you enjoyed this post. I had tons of fun writing it. Toodles!
