PostSubject: Do we really have to try and impress by being someone we are not?    Sun Apr 24, 2016 10:20 am

Something has  bothered me for awhile, and in the last week it became so bad that I felt i needed to get it out my chest, not only did I go off on some friends an hour ago, I am going to post how I feel here, amd hope at least people think about it.

Why do people feel that they have to only be friends with people that fit in with the popular crowd, and ignore other people because it may not be cool to be seen with them, or they are not as popular or have different beliefs than the rest of us do?

I am popular, did I get that way with a $700 phone and always wearing Under Armour, or $175 shoes? No I got that way because I am a nice person who does not judge other people, or who does not chose friends only because other people may feel they fit in.  

Maybe we should start thinking that other people have feelings, and stop doing things or treating people different just because some people may think its not cool, or they think you should not hang around with someone because he is weird or different.

Tomorrow in school I am going to write this and put it in our school newspaper, you can all call me uncool, or make rumors because I am friends with people you do not think are cool, or do not fit in.

I am sick of this in our school, and what I see when I talk to certain people, maybe lets think about feelings other people have and forget about doing things to only impress other people, can we just be ourselves and treat other people with respect and be nice to them?

I am so proud of you right now Jakob, very well spoken.

I know many that are older than you could learn if they thought about what you just wrote here.

Be very proud of the type of person you are Jakob, I know all of your brothers, and I are.

Jakob, you said what needed to be said here, and I hope you do actually go through with this in the school newspaper tomorrow, at least one boy has the courage to stand up for what he feels is the right thing to do.

I feel very special knowing I have you as a friend. I love you I love you

Jakob, MARRY ME Very Happy I so wish many more guys were like you, most are nice for one reason, to see how far they can go, or to benefit them-self, but you are different, your parents and family should be very proud of you.

You are going to shake things up a lot tomorrow Jakob, but you got about 10 of us right behind you in case anyone gives you a problem.

Jakob, I am one of the ten that will be there right with you, this needed to be said a long time ago but people were afraid they might "upset" someone, mostly the people guilty of thinking they are better than anyone else.
!!GO RAIDERS!!

Jakob, you are more like Ryan than any of the rest of us in this family, and that's a good thing. We all are proud of you for so many reasons, being the youngest but stepping up and standing up for things most adults would be hesitant to do.

I think tomorrow you may be surprised, because I got this feeling the majority of those kids in the junior high will be 100 percent behind you as far as how you feel.

Jakob,

You have a great way of getting your point across, and I really hope everyone stops to think about what you wrote in your post.

Both Ryan and I are very proud of you sweetie.
