Having such a change of heart right now. God is really working on me. I need to drop the gossip and be kind to everyone to their faces and behind their backs.

It kind of(see also: really) annoys me when people say that teenagers(or anyone, really) are going through a ‘phase’ and not being true to themselves. I remember being young(er) and thinking a million different ways on ONE topic and feeling a million kinds of emotions and listening to a million genres of music and liking a million fashion trends. I think the mix up is when you believe you have to pick one of each and stick to it or else you aren’t being true to who you are or you’re being fake, or whatever other name someone can tag on you. 

Moral of the story is, don’t pick. Just be. Listen to all the different kinds of music, wear all the trends, allow yourself to debate internally and out loud on why you contradict your own beliefs or why you believe what you do, and allow yourself to feel however you do regardless of how society thinks you should feel. That’s you.
