Stop telling me what to do with my body because I’m a girl.
First let me start off by apologizing for the length of this post. I promise it’s worth the read though! Saw this picture and thought “Exactly. I understand this pain”, and then I started to think deeper about it. & Honestly, I would pick a daisy in a field of roses. The fact that the daisy is different and unlike everything surrounding it, yet still beautiful, is extremely attractive to me. If given the option of a rose or a daisy, I would hands down choose a daisy. Why follow what everyone else does? Why follow society’s idea of perfect? Why?? Be different. Love different.
If people were flowers, referring to the picture, I think the people who have “issues”, aren’t “normal”, have a mental illness of some sort, have been betrayed and hurt more than enough times, etc. would be the daisy’s. The ones who are considered “attractive”, popular, like the others, “perfect”, etc. would be the roses.
I find those with “issues” (like the ‘daisy’s’) extremely attractive. Just the simple fact of there being something deeper than the surface, someone I could possibly relate to, or even the fact that I know they never have anyone there for them & i would like to be that one, is attractive to me. I’ve never been able to explain my likedness towards those who are different or with “issues”, I still have a hard time, but I know that i do like those people a lot.
My point is, there could be hundreds of others out there who think similar to me and would pick you because you’re different over someone who is the same as everyone else. Never think you aren’t good enough for anybody. Because if you can relate to this picture, then I, my friend, would choose you. Just know that. I can’t be the only one. It’s impossible. I love you all, stay beautiful. ❤️
