I'm not your typical kind of girl.
I never played with dolls when I was young. I hated the color pink. I loved tossing a football. I wasn't scared to get a little muddy. But the one thing that pulled me apart from all the other girls was that I loved hanging with the boys.
Ever since I can remember, I was a tomboy. I always wanted to do what the boys were doing. I thought they had more fun than whatever the girls were off doing.
I didn't mind digging in the dirt or getting my hands dirty because I always had fun doing it. My dad would come home from work and we would go toss a football in the front yard. I didn't care one bit that I was the only girl who enjoyed doing these things because I was friends with all the guys who I knew loved it.
Don't get me wrong, I had a lot of girlfriends. I still liked hanging out with the girls, but deep down I knew I had more fun with the guys. There were times when I would be the only girl at a birthday party because I basically was considered "one of the bros." Again, that didn't bother me at all.
Fast forward to 2019.
I don't mind the color pink. I still love tossing a football. And mud still does not scare me. The tomboy in me will never fade away. Even today, it still shows throughout me.
I can hang out with all the boys and be the only girl and feel completely normal. A lot of girls might say that they wouldn't mind being the only girl hanging with a group of guys but in reality, we don't see this happen often.
I'll walk into my guy friend's house as if it's my own brother's.
There is nothing wrong with hanging out with boys. Society these days make it seem as if it isn't normal, but if you have a good time with them then who cares?
Don't let other people's opinions get in the way of your happiness. It's your life, live it the way you want to.
