• Social standards are the main reason why bullying exists. I remember when I was a kid, I didn't have a care in the world yet bullying was right in front of me. The girls I called "my friends" were totally mean, with a typical leader that moved all the rest around as she pleased. I never understood that. I always felt like an outcast at any group. I was Cady in the army of Regina George. I'm not sure if that only happened to me and my constant conflict in following someone else's orders or if this is an actual thing that happens to the girls or guys out there who aren't afraid to speak out.  
  • And that's exactly what I did. As I got older bullying meant nothing to me. Of course, I had insecurities and I still have some, but that never meant that I couldn't continue with my life, or let appearances rule my world. But it wasn't always like that. My self esteem was like a roller coaster until now. I had weight issues until puberty hit me. I got taller and skinnier, but still, wasn't enough. In my second year of high school I went trough one of the hardest moments of my life. I felt like I didn't have any friends. I was always caught up in gossips or at least that's what I thought. I once heard a girl (supposedly my friend) making fun of my with a bunch of other girls about my nose. Okay, I know I don't have the perfect nose, but I couldn't understand why would someone make fun of somebody else's imperfections? That's when I realized those girls had tons of insecurities too.. And probably making fun of my nose was a big distraction to their minds. I hated my nose for a long time.. Sometimes I still do. But then I remember that no human is perfect, and me changing myself just for other people to think differently wasn't an option. 
  • So now I encourage you all to be proud of your imperfections. And who knows, maybe that thing that you hate so much is something that someone would pay for having? Or what if that's the only thing that makes you different than anybody else in this word? I mean, I could get a nose job and look exactly like other billion of girls out there, but my choice was to be different. Impose trends, don't follow and be yourself.
