Popularity and social status seem to be “ideas” of high importance at school. Who’s group you’re in, who you associate yourself with, most people seem to be consumed by the thought of being “cool” and “popular”.
There have even been times where I feel like every decision I have made, from my outfits, to the way I speak have revolved around what other people might think of me. I know how it feels for one persons careless comment to ruin your whole day.
The truth is worrying about how you can “change” yourself to fit in or to be more popular is a waste of time. No one needs to change to be cool, popular or become better. Everyone has different characteristics and should be loved by the people around them for it!
I say, wear whatever shoes you like, be whoever you want to be and remember “those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind”.
