“They don’t know that identity of me” is what I said to my boyfriend one night when he suggested that I tell someone about one of my blog posts.
We all have a hat collection. Our hats are our identities. We put on and take off our hats depending on the situation. For example, I have a hat for when I’m an AWESOME girlfriend (hehe), one for when I’m a teacher, another for when I’m blogging…when I’m selling on TpT…when I’m a doctoral student- one for all of my different identities.
Some of our hats continue fitting for a long time, for instance the hat for when you are a friend or daughter. However, others stop fitting. For example, the hat I wore when I was president of my sorority was one of my favorites, yet now it no longer fits.
Why am I talking about my hat collection? Well, the problem is that I’m afraid to show off my hat collection. I don’t wear certain hats in front of certain people because of the fear of being judged. Not everyone I know has seen me wear the hat for when I’m instagramming on Loca Language Teacher or the hat for when I’m blogging. However, it was my boyfriend who finally said to me “you wear so many hats and you gotta show off your hat collection.”
MIC DROP!!!! Say what?!?! It’s so true! Why are we worried about showing off our ENTIRE hat collection?!?! If anything, it’s actually exhausting keeping certain hats from certain people! I’m willing to admit that showing off my entire hat collection is something I’m working on, but if you’re reading this, I want you show off your hat collection!!
Who cares if people don’t like your styles of hats!! (I know this is easier said than done!), BUT I hope this post encourages you to just do your thing and wear the hats that makes you look and feel AMAZING!
