Just be you. 12/3/10.

This generation.. It’s not one that I favor too much. People are too concerned about what other people think rather than doing what makes them happy. Everywhere I turn, I see people changing  just to be accepted. I’m going to do my own thing and be myself. I don’t give a shit about being “accepted”. Fads, they come and go. I don’t see how someone could be so concerned about what other people think to just completely change just to be accepted. Who decides if you’re accepted or not? The group? Screw them. I’ve never been what you call accepted and I honestly don’t want to be if that means just following after everyone else. I do my own thing. I’ve always been that way & will continue to be. Not that I’m not guilty of it.. But, for the most part I just do what suits me.

I get told all the time that I’m different, an odd one. Why, yes I am. I don’t want to be like you. I do my thing and you do yours. Could it be that simple for everyone? I hate when people like a certain clothing choice, type of music, etc but if everyone else likes something else.. They will follow after the group. “Don’t follow the group. You might get lost in it.” Sooo true. How many of you are already lost in it? Another thing. Drinking, drugs, and sex. It’s amazing how many people will just engage in those things to be accepted. Why the hell can people not just do what makes THEM happy? I don’t get it. Be yourself and you will figure out who your real friends are. Are your friends now just your friend because you like what they like or do what they do? Probably so. Once, you start doing your own thing and setting your own path.. Let’s see how many of them are left.

Society leads the group when it all comes down to it. It’s been that way for some time. This society is one complete mess. Don’t do what society says is right. Most of the time it’s not. Do what you feel in your heart is right. Even if that gets you in trouble, makes you lose some friends, whatever. At least, you’re standing up for what you actually believe in? Right? Afraid you’ll get some criticism and weird looks? Suck it up. It happens. Not everyone is open-minded.

I don’t need to be anything other than a prison guard’s son.
I don’t need to be anything other than a specialist’s son.
I don’t have to be anyone other than a birth of two souls in one..
Part of where I’m going is knowing where I’m coming from.

I don’t want to be anything other than what I’ve been tryin to be lately.
All I have to do is think of me and have peace of mind.
I’m tired of looking ’round rooms wondering what I gotta do..
Or who I’m supposed to be.
I don’t want to be anything other than me.

I’m surrounded by liars everywhere I turn.
I’m surrounded by impostors everywhere I turn.
I’m surrounded by identity crisis everywhere I turn.
I’m the only one who’s noticed..
I can’t be the only one who’s learned.

I don’t want to be anything other than what I’ve been trying to be lately.
All I have to do is think of me and have peace of mind.
I’m tired of looking ’round rooms wondering what I gotta do.
Or who I’m supposed to be.
I don’t want to be anything other than me.

Can I have everyone’s attention please?
if you’re not like this and that.
You’re gonna have to leave.
I came from the mountains.
the crust of creation..
My whole situation made from clay dust stone
and now I’m telling everybody.

I don’t want to be anything other than what I’ve been trying to be lately.
All I have to do is think of me and have peace of mind.
I’m tired of looking ’round rooms wondering what I gotta to do.
Or who I’m supposed to be.
I don’t want to be anything other than me.
I DON’T WANNA BE…
I DON’T WANNA BE…
I DON’T WANNA BE…
I DON’T WANNA BE ANYTHING…
ANYTHING OTHER THAN ME…
I don’t wanna be…
I don’t wanna be…
I don’t wanna be..

^Gavin Degraw- I don’t wanna be. Yeah, the lyrics of this song definitely fits what I’m talking about in this blog.

Main point and what you need to take out of this. Just be you. No exceptions. ❤
