You know, I’ve been thinking about posting this for a while now but I wasn’t sure how to put it. I’m still not sure how to fully explain how I feel, but I guess I’ll give it a try.
About a month ago, I won Homecoming Queen at my school. When I first decided to run, I wanted to do it to promote school spirit and do something exciting for senior year. After I won I realized that I didn’t do it for either of those reasons. To be honest I didn’t do it for me. I wanted to win to show everyone that you do not have to be what the media wants you to be in order to be accepted. Everyone thinks you have to be PERFECT in the media’s eyes to be accepted in society. By my winning Homecoming Queen, I wanted to prove that what’s on the inside is what counts. I’m not perfect in any way shape or form, I’m not what you would see on the cover of magazines or what that girl that everyone wants to be, but I try my best to be humble with what I have and do what pleases my soul for myself and not anyone else.
When I first got nominated, I had this thought in the back of my mind that kept telling me that I was “too fat” and “too ugly” to actually win since the other girls that were nominated were very pretty. After dwelling on that for too long, I realized that a lot of girls feel like this everyday. I know girls that feel like they’re not good enough in general, and after thinking about it, I won it for them. By me winning, I felt like I won it for everyone that ever thought they were ugly and unwanted, because I know what it feels like.
I hope other people realize that no matter what they say, all of you are still good people.
I’m still not sure if any of this makes sense since all of my thoughts are all over the place, but I hope that whoever is reading this understands in some way or another. Bottom Line is: Everyone is beautiful in their own way, and they shouldn’t need anyone to verify it.
That’s all, I’m done venting. lol
