Be You

Day 21!
Guys, guys! It’s 21 March, which means that it is officially spring! Winter is finally over! I’m so happy. I’ve had enough of the dark winter days and I am so excited that the days are getting longer again and that good weather is on its way.
Today I have to write about something I want my future children to learn from me.

Okay, so first off: I do not want any children.
That might sound very strange to most of you and I know that a lot of you will say “Just wait until you’re older, you’ll want kids. You’ll see”. Well, let me pop that bubble for you. I really do not want any children and I have good reasons for it. However! I would adopt a child. Adopting children is so much better in my eyes. Yes of course they child will not have my DNA and will not be anything like me and my (future) partner, but adopting a child is so much better in my eyes. I won’t go into further detail right now, since that’s not today’s topic.

If I ever adopt a child, I would want it to know that they can be themselves and that they never have to feel embarrassed about who they are and what their passions are. Nobody is identical. As a young girl, I was bullied. However, that did not make me just adapt to what they wanted. I’ve always kept close to myself because I knew that the person who has to live with me, is me. There is no one who has to be happy about who I am, accept for me. I have to like the things I do, wear, study and want. It is MY personality and not anyone else’s and if someone does not like me for who I am, they can piss off. I absolutely hate it when I see parents tell children that they cannot do something because “that’s only for a lucky few, you’ll never get famous or good”. No. NO just NO. Or couples going to a romantic comedy and then I see one of the two being visibly annoyed while the other one has the time of their life. If you’re with someone cheer them on about the things they like. I am not saying you should like everything someone else likes. But once in a while, you could maybe just hear about what they have to say, even if you do not understand what they’re blabbering on about.

Personally, I love hearing people talk about what they’re passionate about and then I do not give a damn if I like the topic as much as they do. What count the most, for me at least, is the excitement in their voice. The little lights lighting up in their eyes and the smile that spreads from cheek to cheek. THAT is what friendship and love for other people is about: admiring people for who they are.

And that’s exactly what I try to embody and what I would want not just my future children, but anyone to learn from me.

Thank you so much for reading. Don’t forget to check out my instagram page as well! See you tomorrow.

Lots of love,
