Everyone these days is obsessed with being “cool,” they want to adopt every manner that not only makes them look cool, talk cool, but be recognized as a cool person.
So what does being cool even mean? Alternatively, what is that everyone wants to be so blindly? For starters, being cool for people means to be someone who looks trendy and talks or acts in that “I don’t care” attitude. You have to have the most trendy dressing along with the most chill way of talking to be cool. But, is that so?
Is pretending to be what you are not okay? People get the entire meaning behind “being cool” very wrong. To be cool does not mean to have a killer so not your style. Being cool is rather about “BEING YOURSELF.”
That’s it! It’s that simple; there is no rocket science, if you want to be cool, you have to learn to be yourself first of all. Only then can you progress towards how you want to express it. Know that being cool is being “unique” and to be unique, you have to be yourself, all of yourself, with all your thoughts, your mind, your actions, your habits, and hobbies everything!! That is the first step to being a cool person. Because there is no other you on this planet, and that makes you super special!
With that being said, you don’t have to be like other people of your age, looking for artificial things to incorporate in their behavior so you can look cool. Here are very simple tips with which you can appear cooler while still being your very own self.
Own Who You Are:
