Just be yourself

All my life I've seen fake-ness and it aggravates me.  I just want to walk up to people and ask them "What's wrong with being YOU?" 
Why kiss butt just so you can say you are on top?
Why act a certain way because that's the way society says to act? 
Why try and use a cussword every time you open your mouth because YOU think it makes you look cool?
Most simply...
Why do you pretend to be someone you're not?
I assumed high school drama would end when high school ended.  That is unfortunately, not true.  In fact, sometimes in an office setting gossip and drama is even worse!  I'm not perfect, I've never claimed to be and never will claim perfection, because I'm not.  As humans we are not perfect.  I'm not ashamed of who I am and who I have become and will continue to become.  I am Amanda for a reason, just as you are whoever you are for that reason.  I just wish people would live your life as you know you should.  It's simple, just be YOU!!! 
Stop trying to impress people with your wealth, health, talents and your beauty.  There are so many "figures" in the spotlight that are crooked, who lie, cheat and steal and unfortunately they're passing the message to us that that behavior is acceptable - IT'S NOT!
Can't we all just get along?  To live in this "Great" country of the U.S.A.....we certainly DO NOT treat each other as equals.

  2. When I saw that title I just imagined Robin Williams as the Genie in Aladdin lol.. now that scene is stuck in my head! :)

    P.S. we should have collaborated because I was thinking of writing something very similar.
