Maybe your the shy kid, not wanting stand out in any way, shape, or form. But I say be yourself, and stand out from the crowd. Now, I don't know much about about your world but I know that you've seen a chance and missed it. Did you regret it? Life is full of chances, you just have to take one. Taking chances means to face your fears, which can be hard sometimes, but I know you won't regret it. No matter what the turn out, you'll be glad you took a once in a lifetime chance.
Starting high school this year, I know it's just easier to invisible. But is that really you? Maybe it is and that's fine, you be who you are and don't try to be someone else. For me that's not the case, I've always wanted to stand out, but didn't want to stand out in a bad way, if you know what I mean. But as i got older i realized that it wasn't doing me any good to just be invisible. So I started opening up to people, being a little more talkative, taking small steps. Now I can't keep my mouth shut, which kinda makes me stick out as the girl who can't shut up. That's not exactly what I want to be know for but it is what it is. I thought no one was going to like "Miss Talkative", but I actually have more friends than I can count that absolutely love me for who I am. I took the chance that no one would like me, and it turned out in my favor. Now, by no means am I saying everyone loves me, there's always the "haters" in your life and there's nothing you can do to change that. At least one person isn't going to like what you say or do, it's just the way life works. The people who are against you just make you stronger as you succeed. There are some people who actually liked me better as the quiet girl, that I wish some of them were still my friends but they're not which means they never really were in the first place. So, if your worried your friends won't like you anymore if you take a chance, then I say it's their lost.
Everyone has a dream, taking chances is the only way to achieve. When people tell you you CAN'T, show them you CAN. Live life to the fullest take a least one chance, and see where it takes you.
