Being Edgy Just to Have An Edge Is Anything But Edgy
Just as a confident person steps forward, or raises his voice, only when it makes sense, edginess exists when it arises out of something. You don’t plaster “edge” onto reality.
It’s all about whether there is content to it; where there is something backing the controversy or is it a facade. Are you being clown-loud or is that loudness — one kind of “edgy” — a natural, and for-all-the-right-reasons attention-grabbing consequence of you fighting for something you believe in?
There is nothing less edgy than an attempt to fit in, and that’s what edgy for edginess’s sake effects to. You’re not saying anything real or giving anyone anything. Find yourself, find what you really believe in, and be loud about that instead.
If you feel like you need something to aid your stepping into the unknown, I think you’ll love this book excerpt. It’s from the book called “8 habits of emotionally amazing living”, and you’ll read the chapters where I point out just how f*cking amazing your potential is (and I use arguments you’ll have a very hard time arguing with). Here it is: the book (the link takes you directly to the book on dropbox; without you having to give even your email away).
If you decide to check it out, comment here or in the dropbox document, so I can support you :).
If you think what you read here will be helpful to you, you have any questions about it or you just like me for some unexplicable reason (lol), feel free to hit me up, with something random, normal or ridiculous on:
On linked in — where you find almost a hundred articles, in the same vein and others — and you find my linked in account here (and I like to assume people are awesome, so I’m open to connecting on linked in)

Final words: Keep looking for authentic, inspiring and meaningful, (and when you find it, enjoy it & reciprocate it)
