10 Reasons Why You Will Read This Article

Write your article so others will find it relatable.

I wrote this to suit your needs. I designed this as the perfect article. Here's why you'll read it:

1. This is actually a listicle and not an article.

It should be quick, easy, and have pictures for your entertainment.

2. It has a GIF of a puppy


3. Your Zodiac sign...

Suggested that maybe today was the day you were meant to expand your horizons with new reading.

4. It reminds you that you are entitled to your sexuality...

And has a semi-risqué photo slated as a commentary on body positivity and empowerment.

5. It may utilize strong rhetoric...

And zero quantifiable evidence to support and justify your worldview, and give you an explanation as to why you’re unhappy with your significant other (hint: it’s because you’re unhappy with yourself) but enable you in continuing to be unhealthy with them.

6. There’s a "Star Wars" reference

Particularly to the late Carrie Fisher (God rest her soul).

7. It adds a voice to the current political, racial, or spiritual conversations

8. It offends you

...and/or mentions a sorority.

9. It says “We're all in this together”

10. It makes fun of its reader

But only lovingly, of course, of course, of course.

An Open Letter To The Judgmental People In My Hometown

Imperfections are what gives a diamond its value.

Dear judgemental, simple minded people from my hometown,

I am sorry that I have never met your level of perfection.

Coming from a small town, everyone settles to the norm of the people around them. Unlike you all, I have always been a little bit different.

I've never understood why everyone always seems to feel the need to talk down to the next person. People love to gossip about a situation as long as the situation has nothing to do with them. For every move I made, someone was always there to bring out the negativity in the situation. You all are always sweeping around somebody else's doorstep when I know your doorstep is not clean. Maybe it is time to buy a new broom. I know that I cannot please everybody and that I will also not be liked by everybody. However, I deserve respect just as the next person.

I hope for the sake of the future generations of our small town, you all can learn to be more accepting to change.

I hope that no one judges your children like some of you all have judged me. I hope that the people that you love and care about are welcomed and accepted for who they are.

If we put as much time into being better people or helping others like you put into judging others, the world would be a much better place.

Imperfections are what gives a diamond its value. Pebbles are perfectly round. I'd much rather be a diamond, one in a million, than a pebble that fits in.


The one whose every move you criticize
