People say you should never judge a book by its cover. But we all know that people make decisions about others just by looking at them. When I hear people talk about dark skin people I kinda get upset because I am dark skin myself, but deep down I know that I am just as good as them because I worked hard for what I have today. Many people tell me why I never talk much, I sometimes tell them because I feel weird when I talk out loud. I’m not really used to talking out loud, the people I talk to a lot is my girlfriend or my family or just basically people I’m comfortable with in general. I believe People should not be judged by their skin color, but I also believe people create their own images based on what they wear and how they act. Me, myself I personally do not care what people think of me. The only thing I care about is my apparel and how I dress myself.
I have an obsession with designer clothes. A lot of people ask me, why do you only wear designer clothes? I always tell them that I don’t like it because it’s expensive and I care what other people think of me no that’s wrong, I wear it because I like all my clothes to be nicely tailored. I really don’t know if you’ve heard of “Hugo Boss”, it is a really expensive brand, but if you ever have the chance to go there and try something on you will definitely feel the difference between regular clothes and designer tailored clothes. But back to the point, in my opinion, I’d prefer to pay a little extra and feel better about myself and feel way more comfy in a more layered outfit.
Now just because I like to wear tailored clothes, I want you to understand that to me it doesn’t matter if you are wearing a 4,000 dollar outfit, to me, it only matters how you wear it. I can wear a 40 dollar outfit and still look better than the person with the 4,000 dollar outfit. Because me, myself, and I am more into style than price. Back when I was a freshman in high school I use to always wear nice outfits with dressing shoes, and I also won best dressed that year. But now I lowered my style because I use to always get there late because every morning I use to take like an hour just to get ready for school. I mean it was fun dressing like that because I use to get a lot of compliments but it wasn’t worth the hassle of being late.
I came up with this way of carrying myself because I had to learn it on my own. It is important for me to look good and to take care of myself because I want to prove to people I can do it on my own. My dad was almost never with me so he never taught me how to dress nice and also how to make my own money. So I started working with my brother so now I have money to treat myself, That’s why when I say I buy designer all the time is because I work for it and I like to wear it.
My family has taught me that many people will suffer and many people will succeed, but you get what you put into it. Like my mom and dad, they work hard to buy what they want and the same goes for me I work with my friends to make money so we can spend on what we want. I think you should not take advantage of your parents just because they have money, you know that they also work hard for that as well to support you with food, shelter, and expenses. Trust me if you work for your own money you will feel like you accomplished something big in your life, like as if you could buy anything you want as long as you work for it. So what I’m trying to say is that appreciate for what you have now don’t waste it, because one day that will go away.
Remember you get what you work for not what you wish for.
