There are two different sides to a personality. One that the world gets to see and the other that the world doesn’t. Often the personality out and about may or may not follow trends and can sometimes not even understand or correlate to the personality one would have at home.

After going through some old Instagram post that are the of the highest cringe level imaginable, I realized, especially going through university,  I liked a lot of the same things I do now but only in private or not around friends. From the way that I dressed to the music I liked to listen to. Out and about I would try to “fit in” and like what my friends did and in private I would like what I actually liked. Not only did this translate into my outfit choices being highly questionable, my makeup made me look like another person entirely and for some reason I had a phase where I thought I was in a band because my friends were. Can I jump up and down while playing a guitar? No. Can I even play guitar? Absolutely not. So why was I smudging black eyeliner all over the place acting like I could? It couldn’t have been further from my personal style.

Personal style and taste evolve. That’s not headline news to anyone. But I did find it interesting that I seemed to not want to let my inner nerd come through around other people. Not dressing a certain way because I thought that I would be made fun of for loving Victorian men’s style, being a massive fan of minimal makeup, if any, and classical music. But I have since changed and surprisingly no longer care. I like what I like and when I let my nerd flag fly I found that I discovered in fashion and beauty what I liked and truly didn’t care for at all.

It’s a way of discovering your own personal style without trying. If you have ever or currently struggle with trying to pin down your style, just look at the things and topics that interest you when you are not on the world stage. Topics that you could talk a friends ear off about and make you happy. Dive into those and be proud of them. Let them influence the way you like to wear your hair, the style of denim you wear, and the makeup style you prefer. No two people are the same. Even if you and a friend both are interested in the same topic, you will see and interpret it differently. Embracing that difference in everything you do will influence how you present yourself to the world.

I always like to think of my life as a movie and one that I can only watch once. Looking back on your own film, would you rather want to watch the movie of your life that you have complete control over played out by someone else or by your true self?
