what should i do about this?

i personally like the way i look. why should they care here's waht they want me to do

1. get hair chemically straightened
2.throw out half of my shirts
3. throw out half of my skirts
4. abandon all jewelry involving skulls. and my bee earrings, and hoop earrings.
5. look formal

so what if i dont look like people from where i live? life is not about what the neighbors will think, and i did refrain from adding a green streak to my hair 2 years ago. and no matter how i dress, my natural hair will always cause people to notice me anways, so y should i bother changing at all?

i dont look totally strange, i have friends, and a lot of people who are into these things think it looks very cool.

how do i retain my position?

If you peers are your role models, how will you be able to grow?

If you are happy with the way you look-and you feel like it really defines who you are, then don't change. Always embrace your awesomeness, even if there are the few that don't appreciate it. Cuz the world needs people who are different!
But, however, if there is a little voice in your head that says it's not THAT important...and not worth losing your Shalom Bias-then do it.
Also, keep in mind, your parents know what is best for you.

The user name says it all...

a lot of them are just-just.

i dont think i have peers, whatami. i mean, most people my age- i dont care what they look like most of the time.most people i hang out with are older or are like me. i dont care about most peoples' thoughts on me. why should i? asap, i leave my community anyways, so i dont care about my rep based on clothes.

Hey, the only reason they would tell you to do something is because they actually care about you and want everything to be good for you.

If they didnt care tehy would never tell you to do anything. Also parents (because of they have more life experience) usually do have good advice.
