Don't be someTHINg, be someONE
/\ /\ Coco Chanel said something similar to that. She said "How many cares one loses when one decides not to be something but to be someone". It's true too. People spend so much time trying to conform to the things they think they should be; to feeling how they think they should. It's a waste. You should concentrate on living, on being yourself. Nobody else can do that even HALF as good as you can. Henry Miller said "The aim of life is to live, and to live means to be aware, joyously, drunkenly, serenely, divinely aware". That's what I'm trying to do. Sure I still get held back by my past and by other people's conceptions of me. But I'm trying to burst through; trying to get back to me. So many people think they know me. They think I'm sex crazed, a slut, a bitch, a Britney second-rate wannabe. I'm none of those things. Well maybe except the bitch part but who honestly doesn't have a little bitch in them huh? I'm not gonna sit here and tell you how I'm so complex and hard to understand, that I'm a forgotten romantic, that I'm torn between hurting and loving. I'm just gonna say - you don't know me. Maybe you should try before you put me in one of those little boxes and wrap me up with giftwrap and place me on the shelf labelled Known.
