There is a time during everyone's life where you feel like you have to 'pick your place'. In the most popular American high-school movie tradition it's safe to say you had to fit into one of the stereotypical cafeteria groups. Spoiler alert! In reality you don't have to.
I was well into my 20s when I realised it doesn't have to be like that. I know, I am a little genius sometimes. I would find cute pink things and think: I wish I could like these instead of making fun of them and rolling my eyes all the time. The hardest thing was being happy. I had the idea that everything about me had to make people understand immediately 'who I was'. To be goth I had to be unapproachable, sharing only mean comments and deep melancholic thoughts. Which ultimately made me feel very sad and upset most of the time, add that to the teenage hormones storm and you can easily guess what a mess it was.
Thankfully that odd group of friends made me realise people don't have to follow under a label. We grew up together, we experienced the world and widened our views. There is so much more to everyone, and it's perfectly fine to be a whole set of things. I would wear a metal band t-shirt one day with my combat boots, and a pretty lolita dress the next day, and all was well.
