I really feel like there’s a lot of young people out there who don’t have the confidence or the experience or the skills to dance. When people have that feeling, they don’t really know what to do. I can tell you that there were a lot of people sitting on that carpet that I just danced to. I didn’t think I was capable of doing that, but once I did it, all of the sudden, my ego was gone and I could just go, “Okay, I’m gonna take my time and just have fun.”
I feel like it needs to be said.
The “cute, sweet little girl” story has always been a popular one to latch onto. I find it so incredibly relatable — that there’s no other group of people out there who feel this way. It is a comforting tale of a young girl who doesn’t know the meaning of losing control over her actions, whether it involves bullying, bullying her brother, bullying herself. Because of her naiveté, she often has a difficult relationship with the adults in her life, both of whom she looks up to.
So that’s where things got awkward.
It wasn’t until I started writing a book about the “loner girls” (as my daughter calls girls who are “lonely and never date another person by themselves” in my book) that I started learning that there is another group of girls in the world who are just as happy. They’re not the “crying, whining little girls” I read about on the news or on the Internet.
They are the “normal, happy, happy girls.”
They’re the ones that get invited for coffee after class at night. They’re the ones in sports teams and choir and band and ballet company who just show up to teach, to dance. They’re the ones who go to the movies after school and don’t know what they’ll be seen doing. They’re the ones who walk along a street on a nice day and see a cute couple and immediately think, “Ohhh” — and then say, “Hey, I have my own boyfriend so maybe I could be that person.” They’re the ones who see a car in front of their house and jump out of their car to see what’s in it. They’re the ones who see a boy running with something that looks like it’s broken down and they don’t chase him down, they sit down and make a cup of coffee for him instead.
