did you ever become friends with someone so beautiful? and then they started telling you about the douchebags in their lives that did horrible things to them, like cheat and lie. and the only thing running through your mind is “who would ever want to hurt someone like you?”
i went to school with a pair of identical twins and one time one of them was like “i’m so hot, i’d fuck me” and he turned to wink suggestively at his brother who just batted his eyelashes and blew a kiss at him
“Become friends with people who aren’t your age. Hang out with people whose first language isn’t the same as yours. Get to know someone who doesn’t come from your social class. This is how you see the world. This is how you grow.”—
As someone who had the “privilege” to do all of this, I gotta let you know that this is pretty sugar-coated. You grow by getting to know yourself, not others. Becoming friends with people, who aren’t your age will forever leave you as an outsider to a certain degree. Hanging out with people, whose language isn’t your own will always leave you an outsider to a certain degree. Social class as well. Traveling is how you see the world. The rest is seeing the many ways of where you don’t exactly belong, no matter how close you get to be with these people. I’m not saying you shouldn’t do it. It’s fun. It will give you something to think about, definitely. But don’t think you should avoid people, who are like you in these terms, in order to become something more.
Become friends with people like you. There is nothing wrong with this. And no one will get what you’re all about better than them.
