The word cool can mean different things. Not by definition, but by what we think. What really is “cool”? Maybe there is no “cool,” since everybody’s personality is “cool” in some way to somebody. Maybe there are just people. Maybe we should all look deep down, and discover what really makes a person interesting.

Being cool is not about what clothes you wear or how you look or how popular you are. If anything, being “cool” has to do with your personality and thoughts – the things that people can’t see. What really matters is whether or not you like yourself. The key to the inside is not outside, but the key to both is inside in self-esteem. This, not the superficial topics of clothes, money, and popularity define us. Copying other people who think they’re “cool” is a sign of being desperate and not trying to help by doing what really matters – Giving yourself support. Good support comes from outside, but the only way to truly change the outside is to change the inside.
