Back to basics. I like taking pictures of things. Sometimes they come out as artsy, sometimes they’re a bit mundane, or underexposed, or noticeably grainy, or any other alibi that would prevent me from uploading them. Also, I’m quite obsessed with detail and structure, which applies to mostly everything I do. And I tend to be overly critical of myself. But who isn’t really? Coming from an entire generation that’s deeply immersed in self-indulgence, you are not alone when you feel inadequate and awkward and flawed.
Acceptance is an actual human need, but every so often we fixate ourselves too much on the idea of being acknowledged. Expectations invoked by society turn into thoughts and frustrations become lost souls. But at some point, you’re going to realize that we’re all a little broken, that scars are probably one of the most beautiful things in the world because they remind us that we’re survivors, despite being inadequate and awkward and flawed. *cue Miley’s Wrecking Ball in the background*
Don’t fret over your fear that people are going to judge you, because they will. But that doesn’t mean you’re going to stop doing the crazy things. By crazy, I mean mentally stable crazy, not the killing spree/Dexter kind of crazy. Bottomline: Love yourself, you socially awkward person.
