Popularity. What an interesting concept. If you’re good-looking, have a lot of friends, and everyone seems to know something about you, you are most likely popular. And if you’re popular, apparently your life is great. I wouldn’t know what popularity feels like, but I feel no want to know what if feels like. So why does everyone else? What is so good about being popular? Everyone knows the ins and outs of your personal life and there is no privacy. Jealous girls (and boys) make rumors about you, but is that what some people like? And if you’re popular then how do you know who your true friends are? Someone could be merely acting nice in hopes of getting some of that popularity, right? Don’t get me wrong, I’m not hating on the popular kids, I’m just curious as to what the big deal is. I’m sure there are plenty of people out there who want to be popular, but my message to you is: no one really remembers. Ten, fifteen years from now, no one is going to remember how many Facebook friends or Instagram followers you had. It will all be history. Focus on what matters right now, because popularity sure doesn’t matter. Regina George thought that popularity was everything, and look what happened to her, she got hit by a bus. You don’t need a whole posse of friends, all you need is a loyal group to be there for you no matter what. So don’t sweat it when you see the “cool kids” walk by you at lunch or during passing period, just keep you head up, and concentrate on what’s important.
