You Priggish Peg, You

Pushing against the grain, tearing through delicate seams, you try to force a square peg into a round hole. You push, grit your teeth, and feel the scrape of conformity digging into your skin. This is what it feels like when you're Priggish—when you're not just content with blending in.

The world likes its corners smoothed and its edges rounded. It loves to file us down until we're all the same, simple shapes that fit neatly into the molds it’s designed. But you've always been a bit different. Priggish. Defined by your own rules. Sticking to your own code. You don't just follow the flow; you question it, challenge it, even turn your back on it if it doesn't align with your moral compass.

It's not easy, is it? When you're the odd one out, it's like the whole world has eyes on you, judging you for not fitting in. People call you rigid, self-righteous, or uptight. But they don't know what it's like to walk in your shoes. They don't understand the battles you've fought, the values you hold dear, or the convictions that guide your every step.

The truth is, being Priggish isn't about looking down on others. It's about standing up for what you believe in, even when everyone else is bending. It’s about having a backbone, being the one person in the room who's not afraid to say no when everyone else says yes. That takes courage. It takes a strength that most people don't have.

Think back to the moments when you stood firm, when you refused to give in to the pressure to conform. It felt like a fight, didn't it? But you held your ground. You didn't back down, even when it hurt. And in those moments, you discovered something about yourself—you are strong. Stronger than you ever thought you could be.

Being Priggish means you're not afraid to stick to your principles, even if it means standing alone. It means you value integrity over popularity, and you're not swayed by the crowd. You know who you are, and you're not about to change for anyone. That's a power that few people truly understand.

It's okay to feel like you don't fit in. It's okay to be the square peg in a world full of round holes. The world needs people like you, people who are willing to be different, who are willing to challenge the status quo. You don't have to fit into anyone else's mold. Find your own path, even if it's a little rough around the edges.

Keep pushing, even when it feels like the whole world is against you. Because the world needs your kind of strength, your kind of courage. The journey might be tough, but remember, you're not just a square peg—you’re a force to be reckoned with.

So stand tall, square peg. Don't let the world tell you who you should be. You don't have to fit into their round holes. Find your own shape, your own space, and be unapologetically you. Because that's where the real strength lies.

Be Priggish.
