I feel I need to be honest with my Rebels and say who I am. Maybe inspire someone else who have used fashion as a out look in order to express themselves. So I wanted to give a name to a face. But before I do that rebels we must have a convo from one person to another person type of chat.
Many years before I knew who I was I pretended to be someone I wasn’t and hid myself from so many people where they thought who is this woman. I was scared of my own wit and smarts, even question myself, “Why am so afraid to show the world my true self.” Then I went into trying to pretend to be some one else. I decided to become Tyra Banks with long straight hair. Don’t get me wrong rebels it is ok to fake it until you make it but one day you have to say,” I see the world and I want to eat it.” The world is a hugh place and it may seem like an ocean that is so deep. But we are capable of floating and getting to the main land.
We are stronger then what think we are. If you feel like you need to get out that shell then do it. Rebel for yourself and know that the people who are suppose to be your friends will still hang around. We all going to die. Why not live now for yourself and yourself only.
Now go and rebel for your cause, to get out of your shell, and to get out of your way. Use the things that inspire you to move forward. I used fashion as a way to express my feelings. The one thing about fashion I find most uplifting is the fact the FASHION HAS GUTS to talk about and show us who we truly are.
