Growing up in a society where a number defines who you are, it's easy to lose sight of who you want to be. It's all about survival of the fittest, and you're always so careful not to fall behind. You always make sure to have the top grade and smallest pant size, but the truth is, a number doesn't have the power to define you. Here are eight numbers that don't define who you are.
1. Your Weight
The number on the scale will never have anything to do with who you are as a person. Its just a stupid number that does not determine how great your hair looks or how you actually nail the winged eyeliner look.
2. Your Class Rankhref="<iframe src=" giphy.com="" embed="" nyenxawmnmjw8"="" width="480" height="255" frameborder="0" class="giphy-embed" allowfullscreen="
In the real world, no one is going to care if you were #1 or #320. What they are going to care about is the work you bring to the table. So what if you aren't book smart? You've got common sense for days, which is the ultimate key to survival.
3. Your Salary
4. Your Shoe Size
This should never even be an issue. People like to poke at people, especially women, with big feet. There is nothing wrong with not having a small petite foot. Dolce and Gabbana shoes come in all sizes.
5. Your Dress Size
I've recently been in a position where I had to get a much bigger dress size to accommodate the "top half" of my body, and there is nothing wrong with that. I can't help that I was blessed, and neither can most women with the same issue. I will proudly take that size 12 over the six that doesn't even zip. Embrace what your mama gave you!
6. Your GPA
C's get degrees, am I right? Who cares if you don't graduate Magna Cum Summa or whatever. The real world isn't going to care.
7. Your body count
Slut-shaming isn't cool, and it has no real reflection on who you are as a person. If anyone ever tries to belittle you because of this, kick them to the curb, quite literally.
8. Your AgeYou are never too young to conquer the world or too old to have a new dream. As F. Scott Fitzgerald once wrote, "There are no rules to this thing. You can make the best of it or the worst of it, and I hope you make the best of it."
It's very easy to get caught up in the craziness of it all. The only number that ever truly matters is how many drinks you've had within the past five minutes.
