How to Go from Freak to Cool

Being a freak can sometimes be very fun. Sometimes you think you're a freak, but really, the only people making fun of you are the really weird and mean people. Sometimes it's fun to stand out. Before you change, remember to always be yourself. Maybe changing is not so good. You can just improve your appearance and try not to continue strange habits that could be getting you made fun of.

    Make sure you have high self-esteem. If you don't, learn that everyone is different and that you can be proud of who you are. If you still can't seem to find friends, a counselor may be able to help. Friends help build self-esteem and even if your friends are freaks, they can help you a lot.

  • Eyeliner, mascara, and lip gloss are great for helping your face look a bit better(for girls), but don't overdo it. Learn how to apply make up correctly and effectively. For example: If you decide to put on some foundation, make sure your skin tone appears even under sunlight.
  • Be social. Talk to people - even the ones that you don't know well.
  • Try to keep up with trends.
  • Do not look ashamed of yourself or you will attract people that only make fun of you.
  • Always be yourself.
  • Try to get good grades and do homework. People can help you if you need it, but you don't have to get straight As. Try to get a lot of As and Bs, though.
  • Be careful about what you say.


  • Do not put on too much makeup. The point is to enhance your best facial features, not to show that you're wearing makeup.
