You know when people talk about needy Mormon girls who fall in love with a guy if he so much as looks at them? I’m that girl, or at least I’ve been that girl for the past 6 years of my life. I feel like I’m coming out of that desperate phase, but the rep still follows me. What can I do?
Dear That girl,
Don’t worry, we’ve all been (or at least felt like) that desperate girl at one time or another.
Something I’ve realized recently is that people aren’t thinking about you as much as you may think they are. Meaning, they’ve got their own problems, struggles, and reputation to worry about – so if you’re ready to re-invent yourself, get to it.
People will allow it, and even if they don’t, who cares, you know you’ve changed, and that is what counts.
