I’ve come to find that recently in this community a lot of kittens are getting accused of copying others, especially the more popular kittens in the community. This has been going on for a while now.
A good example is “Kiwi copycats”.
A lot of people in this community get accused of being a kiwi copycat because maybe they have multiple piercings or hair their hair dyed, or maybe they just like the same style as kiwi. To tell the truth I’ve been labeled as a kiwi copycat before as I really wanted to do a piercing apprenticeship, that never happened as I fell madly in love with beauty therapy and nail technology. Also because I had multiple piercings and had a really big interest in them.
The main point of this article is to get across that being yourself is good! Embrace it! No matter how much or little you are accepted, that’s what people love, when you are yourself.
Never try to be anyone else. I’ve been through so many style phases over the years wanting to be people and wanting to be as popular as them. Some good examples are; scene girls, popular girls from school, Felice Fawn, Venus angelic, Wylona Hayashi, Effie (from skins), the list goes on… after sitting down and having a think about I realized I’ve always been a mixture of all these different styles with a whole lot of me mixed into it. I feel so much better and a lot less under pressure being myself, and look where being myself has got me, ive got lots of amazing, lovely supporters and I couldn’t ask for better ones.
Yeah sure I get a lot of hate but that hate is flooded out by all the amazing love and support I get. Just carry on being you, even if you get accused of being a copycat, your just being you.
