I Was Like Paris

It seems the whole fanbase is going crazy about Paris and her behaviour. I'm not. I'm not judging her either. She is like me a few years back. Well, maybe even like some traces of mine today.

Being a child of famous parent and losing that parent in childhood is not nice. I haven't experienced these things, but I can imagine she has been under more pressure than me. After all, she and I are bisexual and pansexual, respectively. She and I are open and honest online. Many people have abused us for any of this.

I didn't love myself for lots of reasons and this is why I used to self-harm. At a few points in my life, I thought there was no reason to live. I was smoking. I was drinking (uhmmm, I still do). And I dated and slept with jerks. One of the guys was violent to me, but I thought it was all my fault.

I've never dropped out of school although I was close to it a few times in my life. I was bullied and I had some other issues. I am a perfectionist and put a lot of pressure on myself. This can be good and bad at the same time. I have a few relatives that dropped out of school, for many reasons, but I don't blame them. It just wasn't their thing and they live their lives as they please.

As Janet put it, I guess I should've known better, but it's hard when you have so little experience. Based on mine, I would say you need to truly love yourself. You need to ignore people that try to put you down. You need to accept yourself with your strengths as well as weaknesses.

It takes time though. You also need to have supportive people around you. But it's only you that can change yourself. You have to love yourself.

Don't bring Paris down. You are not going to make things better. She's trying to navigate the world she was born into. Respect her. You may not agree with the things she does, but damn, she's still a human being.
