At least 10 people have already told me that I’m a waste of talent. I’ve heard it all. My mother, my teachers, my dance teachers,friends, even my boyfriend. It’s not so much that I’m a waste, it’s just the direction I’ve chosen to take. And I’m beginning to feel like it’s such a sin. If I want to…
I honestly think there is nothing wrong with wearing religious accessories.
I think everyone who complains that “Religion is not a fashion” seriously have nothing else better to do. People have the right to wear whatever they please, and there is nothing wrong with showing pride in your faith.
Example: A girl i know wears a rosary on her wrist that her grandmother made for her. People talk shit about her for wearing it, but i really don’t think she deserves it.
I have nothing against wearing religious bling. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with that.
But to me, “Religion is not a fashion” isn’t talking about wearing a cross or being proud about being faithful. It’s about those who jump the band wagon, wear religious artifacts, but don’t practice a faith. God is cool. But only pretending to believe in it makes me uneasy. God should not be a fad. It should be a lifestyle. Plus, don’t forget that pride is one of the seven sins.
[What really gets to me are those that wear rosaries as necklaces. Oof. That’s just ignorance.]
wholeheartedly agree. i wear a scapular rosary around my neck all the time. i even dance with it. but the one thing that i always make sure i do with it is pray the rosary every night. because what’s the purpose of wearing something so religious without utilizing it?
