Hipster, preppy, hippie, stoner, artsy, whore, the list goes on and on for all of the stereotypical names given to woman in today’s society. The question is why? Why do people instantly give others titles, or even more importantly why do women give a fuck about the titles that others label them with?
First off, what all women must realize is the fact that we will never escape any type of label. For years, we have fought against discrimination and sexism yet all still exist regardless of any argument presented. This is the exact reason as to why no woman should pay any mind to what people say or who they think we are…yet almost all do.
Confidence is key ladies- for yourself and a little helpful hint…the same goes for guys too. No man wants a weak woman that will say or do whatever he pleases, nor do they want someone who dedicates their lives to dressing or acting a certain way or listening to a particular type of music because that is what fits the role of a “hippie” lifestyle.
Like myself, some of you may find the truth behind this last statement slightly deranged, but sadly there are women out there that have fallen into the pressures of living such a lifestyle. Plain and simple, be the creature that you are. Among one of the best compliments, I find, any person can get is something along the lines of this:
“Nina (use any name girls name) is just so… Nina, you know? Like a creature almost, I don’t know how else to put it.”
Lo and behold everyone will know exactly what that person means because all will see how confident you are in being you. Enjoy the music that brings warmth to your soul, express everything that is on your mind, and dress any way you desire, even if others think you’re wearing a costume. Once you realize that each and every woman has the ability to carry it with confidence, the instant amount of respect surrounding you can and WILL be felt throughout a room.
Be the most YOU that YOU can be. In conquering your own self the amount of mouths that will be kept shut along with the labels that will no longer exist may very well leave you in awe. Now, if only all women could understand this bizarre concept of stereotypes and do away with it our world would be a better place.
Lastly, if you can live by these words, you can do anything,
“I’m incomparable to anybody. I don’t care how people take that. No one can compete with me. I’m unfuckwittable; no one can knock me off my shit. I’m an unstoppable force, I’m a bullet. My trajectory is to the sky.” - Scott Mescudi
