Don’t be that girl

The one in the corner, watching 

The one holding court in the lunchroom

The one playing field hockey

The one with a boyfriend

The one who has all the right clothes

The one who wears dark eyeliner

The one with her nose in a book

The one who donates time to charity

The one who’s the teacher’s pet

The one with piercings

The one you copy. Try to be like. Wish you could be. 

Don’t be that girl – she’s already taken. 

Be you. Authentically and uniquely you. 

Be that girl. 

The one who’s true to herself

The one who loves herself

The one who values her individuality

From that, everything else will flow. 

Let you be you. 

Be that girl.
