You’re Allowed To Not Fit In

Gabriel Matula

You’re allowed to be yourself. You’re allowed to be your own kind of beautiful. You’re allowed to be all of the things that set you apart from the crowd. You’re allowed to wear the shape of you however you like. You’re allowed to seek self-love instead of impressing others. You’re allowed to be imperfect and flawed instead of pretending to be someone you are not, instead of wishing your uniqueness away. You’re allowed to wear the clothes that reflect your personality. You’re allowed to go to the places where your tribe is at.

You’re allowed to be different. You’re allowed to have your own set of beliefs. You’re allowed to live by unusual standards. You’re allowed to have a mind that is rare. You’re allowed to get out of your comfort zone. You’re allowed to challenge yourself and grow. You’re allowed to expand your horizon. You’re allowed to let who you are define you instead of your job status, social class or nationality. You’re allowed to be deep instead of being shallow. You’re allowed to give a fuck instead of being selfish. You’re allowed to choose real love in the era of games. You’re allowed to be sober in a world where people are high on alcohol, sex, drugs, or the thought of someone. You’re allowed to be real where most of us are fake, where we hide our truth behind a mask.

You’re allowed chase after your dreams. You’re allowed not to settle. You’re allowed to take risks. You’re allowed to be fearless when it comes your passions. You’re allowed to not give-up on what you want even if it seems impossible. You’re allowed to be one of the crazy ones who actually did it. You’re allowed to achieve the kind of success you want regardless of what society, your family or circle of friends think.

You’re allowed to love yourself. You’re allowed to accept yourself for who you are. You’re allowed to be satisfied with who you are in and out. You’re allowed to be friends with your demons. You’re allowed to be comfortable with being alone and with being on your own.

You’re allowed to enjoy the moment before it turns to a memory. You’re allowed to appreciate what you have now and who you are today. You’re allowed not to be preoccupied with your phone 24/7. You’re allowed to be aware of your surroundings. You’re allowed to be here. You’re allowed to be here even if you don’t belong. Because this place was made for people like you and I, too. Because people like us who don’t fit in, save the world from becoming unexciting, tasteless and lifeless. People like us make it worthwhile.TC mark
