Whataya want from me?

Women are usually divided into two categories.

The Girly Girl or the Tomboy.

If you don’t like feminine clothes then you’re automatically a tomboy. If you hate getting your hands dirty then you have to be a girly girl.

But what if you’re both? Or worse, neither of them?

I was in my Biology I class when one of my classmates asked what I was.

I looked at him and asked “What do you mean?”

“You know,” he replied, “Are you emo? Goth? What?”

I stared at him and realized that I didn’t have an answer. Or, at least, an answer that would satisfy him.

I’m me.

Let me put this situation into perspective. It was my first year of high school and this guy was asking what, not who, I was.

Ring from Shasa. Shades from Poshmark.

Boots are Wild Diva Lounge.

Top from Poshmark. Pants from Forever 21.

Because I’m still in the process of self-discovery, I refuse to label myself in any way. Or, at least not with the ones that society has created.

If I know the answer to a question then I’m a know-it-all.

If I disagree with the popular opinion then I’m a weirdo.

If I don’t like sports the I’m a weakling.

If I refuse to cheat or do anything that goes against my morals, then I’m a bitch.

 

What about calling me intelligent instead?

Or unique?

Or someone with moral integrity?

Why must there be requisites for something as complicated as an identity?

Kick your haters to the curb!

  1. The best part of getting older is starting to know what you like & don’t like. But I still think it’s silly to have categories! I am a woman—that’s it in a nutshell!
    Good for you for being who you are and discovering yourself!! You’ve got a great start!

  2. Since I don’t actually know you at all, Eve, my input here may have little value. But I do know this…you are unique and interesting and fabulous and refreshing. You are genuinely who are you and that will carry you far in life. You are strong and creative and original and fun and beautiful. So what’s it worth….I think you are perfectly you know matter what labels people throw around. So rock on, girl, with your fabulous self!

    And thanks for linking up with me On the Edge of the Week. I hope to see you again next week. Have a wonderful weekend!

  3. Love the outfit, especially the pants. I would totally wear those boots and pants too. I’ve always struggled with this question as well. Growing up I hated pink and anything sparkly, (still do, kinda). I have never been the real girly, super feminine girl, but I am not really a tomboy or tough chick. Some where in between is where I find my self. It can take some ppl a life time to answer the question “what or who are you”? So don’t stress out and just live and enjoy life. Thanks for linking up to #untamedstyle and see you next Friday!!
