Celebrity Magazine Covers Seamlessly Blended With Classic Paintings

Being average

It’s suffocating. The pressure to be something great that I put myself in - that, I think, has been placed on me ever since I was just a small kid, even when I wasn’t noticing it. This feeling that I have everything I need, all the tools, to become something great.

When I look around, I see a lot of people that seem to be going through the same. When did it stop being enough just getting a B, or a job, or someone that makes me happy without all the goosebumps? Was it ever enough? All my life, I’ve been listening to “Seek more. Try harder. Don’t settle.” It’s a horrible feeling now, just wanting to settle for a little bit, just wanting to stop and take a breath.

It feels like I’m drowning in expectation everyday, and coming back up a little breathless. Always a little more tired of never being enough. It’s horrifying to think that someday, I might have a regular job, a regular family, a regular life. Because all along, I’ve been told that’s the same as not having anything at all. Possibly because I don’t know what having nothing feels like.

Always being stuck in the middle, and being told that was not where I should be, leaves it all up to me. In the end of the day, if I end up stuck in the middle, it’s either because I didn’t try hard enough, or because I’m not capable enough. Honestly, I don’t know which one is worse.

These words pouring out feel even more relieving then tears. Because they walk hand in hand - when I swallow back the tears, all day every day, I’m swallowing back the words, too. The feeling. I couldn’t take it anymore; it just felt like I was going to breakdown. Thank you for listening. Or not.

"the heart wants what the heart wants"

BULLSHIT. The heart wants what’s unavailable.

Confidence is the only key. I know a lot of people who aren’t traditionally ‘beautiful’ - not symmetrical or perfect-bodied or perfect-skinned. But none of that matters because all that shines through is their confidence, humor and comfort with themselves. I can’t think of any better representation of beauty than someone who is unafraid to be herself.

I hate fashion. But then I see this stuff and it’s like “MOMMY I WANNA BE A PRINCESS AND WEAR THOSE DRESSES”
