How to Reinvent Yourself (for Teens)
So, you want to re-invent yourself, eh? Well, you've come to the right place. Hopefully this article will give you some tips to start and help you out! Follow this guide and you will become a new person almost immediately. The number one thing to remember is be confident in yourself. Think of yourself as the strong, independent person you are and you'll be seen as that person.
Forget the stereotypes.This is not a how-to-hide-yourself article. All stereotypes have things in common. We all drool over that hot babe, love our new clothes, cry, laugh, smile etc. We're all people, and there is no reason to categorize ourselves any more than what has been done.
Clear your mind.Yes, there is meditation and kick boxing. But there is music, reading, anything that clears your mind.
Feel good about the way you look.If you don't like the way you look, you can change the way you look. Don't like your hair? Get a new style. Don't like your weight? Change your diet, but ask a doctor or parent first. Don't aim for skinny, aim for healthy.
Try new things.You may try things such as painting, art classes, play an instrument, computer programming, sewing, writing, any form of creating something. Or, find something you haven't tried before and go do it! Fancy dancing classes? Join a salsa club or a tap club.
Keep a journal and reflect on your day.This will show how you improved on your new personality.
Don't go crazy with a crush.If you do that, they will get scared and not want to be with you. Treat them nicely and be yourself.
Be friendly to everyone.No one wants to be friends with the person who spreads rumors or makes fun of everyone.
Wear what makes you feel comfortable.If you're not satisfied with your wardrobe and how it looks on you, change it up. Go with a friend to the mall and pick out some clothes, and ask her to give you her honest opinion.
Do your hair and makeup differently on a date.If you really want to impress your date, style your hair nicely. Guys, don't put in too much gel. Girls, don't spend hours on your hair. It might turn out well but there's also a good chance you will end up looking like a person who is obsessed with their looks. Plus, if you are going on a date, then your date should like you for you, not some person hid behind makeup, hairspray, perfume, and high heels.
Don't stress over what other people think.It shouldn't matter, as long as you like who you are. Also, stress can lead to breakouts or bad habits that are hard to break.
Don't fiddle with your hair too much.This makes it greasy, which makes your face greasy, which gives you breakouts like crazy. No one likes a person who looks like they haven't showered in a week.
If you like someone, do small things to make yourself look nice.Paint your nails, hold the door for them, complement them, text them with a smiley face, send them a message on facebook, ask how their day was, start a conversation about something you have in common like a class or a band you both like.
How can I reinvent myself over the summer?
- Step out of your comfort zone once in a while. It can be hard, yes, but the results are worth it!
- Be the person you want to be! If people don't like it...well, it's not their business!
- Just be true to who you are.
- Don't get discouraged if you're made fun of. You're you, and you like it!
- If you have self esteem issues, website articles aren't going to help you one bit. See a counselor, therapist, psychiatrist, or trusted adult.
- If you overdo changing yourself, your friends and partner may hate the new you and you'll be more alone than before.
