How are you choosing to live your life?

I don't really have a life changing, awe inspiring story to tell. There's no traumatic incident or family secret or even a lack of money, it's just me trying to live my life without comparison.

"Comparison is the thief of joy" - A YouTube video about social media.”


I'd like to think that I'm okay with how my life is at the moment, and to a certain extent I am, but when you compare what other teenagers are going through it makes me feel as if I'm a background character in my own story. I know I'm not, but sometimes I wonder if I'm really living life to the fullest. Sure I might not be the most outgoing and sneak out to parties, but I have plenty of interesting traits and quirks. I made my school's basketball team, high grades, caring friends, and I'm not really ashamed to be called the 'boring one'.


I'm not really sure how many people might relate to this, since most of my friends are attention seeking soakers, but I know I'm not the only one who feels left behind. Make people remember you for who you are, not who you're friends with. I think that would be my biggest insecurity, not being remembered. Ha ha, luckily I'm over it and force myself to be confident instead of shameful and sad, and honestly it makes a huge difference. People flock towards you because it's attractive and has substance.


I'm not saying go be the most outgoing person, because I'm definitely not, but don't be afraid to go out of your comfort zones!!


Anyways, that was a public service announcement/mind dive into me. Goodnight.
