First off this is a stunning photograph! The Sun flare is in the perfect place compliments the photo very well. Lovely angle it doesn't...


Trying to please everyone is probably the worst idea you could ever possibly have going into high school.  Sadly, that was my goal walking into CCHS Freshman year.  Fortunately, I met an incredible person down the road of this wonderful thing called high school. (For some reason, people call it the "best" four years of our lives?) This person showed me how un-fulfilling having people approve you really is.  I learned three things over the years.

One, half the people who you're trying to please are complete idiots. Honestly, the lack of respect you have for them, shouldn't give you any satisfaction of their…approval for lack of better words.  Two, I've watched someone try so hard to satisfy everyone, that they started manipulating every little thing.  Lie a little just to make it exactly what that person wanted to hear.  To the point where they lied when they didn't even have to.  And Three.  You get so caught up in lies you don't even see that no one likes you for who you truly are.  You think you've got it down now.  Everyone likes the person you've covered yourself to be.  Not one person, not even your parents know who you really are.

But even worse, there are too many lies and too many acts to keep up with.  It all starts tumbling out of control and people catch on.  People talk, we should all know this by now.  Everyone sees that you lie compulsively.  People start to consider that sense everything that comes out of your mouth is somewhat twisted and morphed to what you want others to hear, they start to not give a damn to what you say.
So then, sadly, in the end you lose.  You're whole plan to please everyone, which granted was started with good intentions… failed…miserably.

But through the years it showed me pleasing everyone and making everyone happy make's you miserable.  It brings no happiness just some terrible weight to carry around.  Trying to please God by trying to be perfect is the most emotionally tiresome task to take on.  Being 17 almost 18 and still trying to still think the same way as your parents doesn't work, no matter how close you are to your parents.  Putting on a big show for everyone isn't worth it.  Yes, we all still care what the other thinks, that's human nature to want approval from our peers.

This summer I'm going to do what makes me happy, but still stays within my moral values.  I learned it from someone else. You'll be so much happier to do what you love, and only care about the people you truly love.

So thanks for showing me everything not to do.  I am loved for who I am.  And its sooo much more fulfilling to have the acceptance of 3 people I love than to have everyone love me for someone I'm not.  I'm so ready for senior year.

hey :)
I attempted to edit your "edit me please" picture...I'm a total noob at any actual editing program, and it's not very different from the original, just enhanced a bit. Anyway, how do you want me to send it back to you?
