I Don’t Read Reviews

My favorite band released their fifth album over a week ago and I was extremely excited because they put a lot of time in between each album so the anticipation was real. They have been on the verge of breaking up for years now, so every time they release something or go on tour I am the most excited human in the world.

I saw a lot of people post statuses about the album, I saw famous musicians tweet about it, but I never really read deeply into them because it just doesn’t matter to me. I don’t really care what you think about the album, because I love it. And I don’t need someone dumping negativity all over something I love.

I don’t really trust music or movie reviews because it just comes down to the simple fact that we all have certain emotions that are attached to these things and it gets touchy when other people insert their opinions. It’s almost like politics. I feel very strongly about my favorite band, just as I feel very strongly about certain political stances to the point where no matter how much we argue, you won’t be changing my mind.

We all watched the new Taylor Swift music video and song, some people passionately loved it and some people passionately hated it. But I’m not going to dump all over something you feel strongly about – I don’t really write reviews or read them for this reason.

And I feel like this could be adapted into most things in my life. To form my own opinion before listening to others.

Why Be Anything But Nice?

I will be the first to admit that most of my life was spent not  being a nice person. I think I tried to be a good person when I was young, but was quickly walked all over in middle school and high school. So I tried being bitchy and it seemed to work better for me.

It kept people out of my life and at arm’s length, it kept me safe and protected, but it was a lot of effort. It was hard to consistently be meanish to people, not because I was denying my nature to be nice, but because you have to be tough all the time and keep up this image that shows people that you don’t want to be bothered. It was like a game, you can’t catch me because I’m dark and edgy and I don’t like you.

Right after I graduated college, I just realized it’s easier to be nice to everyone. You can still keep them at arm’s length, but in a way that you could reach out if you needed to. Back when I wasn’t nice at first glance, people were always disappointed when the can’t catch me girl was caught and wasn’t as dangerous as they thought. I felt like I was never living up to anything and was just over the trend of people not liking me. Who wants to be disliked? Why was I ever that way?

I watched this video on Facebook the other day about a woman who was fat shamed at a Dairy Queen. It absolutely killed me.

I have been working very hard to help build up the people in this world who have been torn down by media, society, and just the pressures of being human. Because I feel all of those things too and I need someone to build me up too.  Everyone is fabulous in their own way. I used to get jealous and spiteful when a girl looked better than me, now I’m like damnnnn girl, rock it! If you look hot, I’m going to tell you that you look hot even if I don’t know you.

Because why not? Being mean wasn’t easy, it bogged me down. I think we need to stop striving to be this elusive boss ass bitch and just be nice. You can still be powerful and kind.
