There’s so much you can learn from one person. You can learn the pain behind their eyes, the mystery of ones brain, and the darkness in ones heart. You can learn their ways of life, their struggles, and how they deal with certain things. But there are things you don’t learn. You grow out of them.
We grow up not caring about what others think because there are others just like us. As we grow, we forget the ways we lived and that everyone is the same. Today, you can learn so much on the internet that we forget to give ourselves a reality check.
You learn new things about yourself when you walk away from social media. You do, however, learn more about your self-esteem, your mind, and how creative you can get by looking online.
I was looking through my feed today and found a post about a boy named Jamie, who loves to wear dresses, and can seriously strike a pose. He inspires you to be yourself no matter who tells you that you can’t. His sister is helping him to stay true to himself.
I follow thatsthat24 and the things he reblogs really inspire me to make certain changes in the way I portray myself. By that, I mean just staying true to myself and make sure your weirdness stands out. I’d seriously like to thank Thomas for that.
I challenge you to get off of social media for a few days. Take that time to find a new talent, try a different hobby, or maybe try to get in touch with your inner self. Trust me, you’ll learn a lot that way.
