Too often, I've had someone tell me, in the midst of a good conversation, in a very vague attempt to compliment me, that I was different from other girls.
Too often, I've accepted this, as nothing more than a boost to my ego, because I knew a little too less to know any better.
So if you find me not giving you the 'thank you', you feel entitled to hear, ask yourself - Why would I want to be different?
Most girls I've met all my life have been beautiful, kind, intelligent, hard-working, independent. If you tell me I'm unlike them, I'll only know I'll lack a lot.
So I want to be like all the women I've met. I aspire to be as generous, as smart and as inspiring. I want to be like all of them at once, and embrace every beautiful quality they have.
So don't tell me I'm not like them. Don't tell me I shouldn't be.
