Alright. This is going to be an extremely casual (and long- I apologize) post. But I don’t care because the above post, written by Harry Styles himself, is not okay. Before I even begin to talk about the content of his answer, let’s just discuss Harry in general, and who he is. Harry is the most charming, outgoing, kind, heartfelt, and dare I say attractive person I have ever seen, and is also exceptionally talented at what he does. To me and every other directioner out there, Harry is the epitome of perfection. Yet in this post, he proceeded to list his insecurities, and I’m sure that if any directioner were to read this, they would be pained to know that Harry is insecure about this many aspects of who he is. And since I am a firm believer that Harry is a wonderful person who should have nothing to be ashamed of, I am going to go through everything Harry listed and either prove that it’s false, or prove that it isn’t a flaw.
“Chubby.” Absolutely, completely, 100% false. Honestly, I have no backup for this argument except for the fact that there’s a reason girls go insane when new shirtless pictures of Harry are sent into the Internet world. I think most people are insecure about their weight, even when they aren’t actually “chubby.” So I’m going to leave this aspect of the post at the fact that Harry is simply being hard on himself. And since I’m going to tag Harry in this post: Harry, love, your body is perfect; don’t ever let anybody convince you otherwise.
“Too overprotective.” Since I don’t actually know Harry in person, I can’t say whether this is true or not. Personally, however, I don’t think being overprotective is a bad thing. If somebody is overprotective, it means that they don’t want anything bad to happen to the people they care about. So ultimately, being too overprotective means you are willing to do anything to keep the people you love out of harm’s way. I’d say that’s a good thing, and I’m sure anyone else would as well.
“Easily angered.” This may or may not be true. But you know what? Most people are easily angered. I’ll admit that I’m one of those people. But what matters isn’t how often you get mad about something; it’s how you deal with it. And seeing as Harry has never let any anger he’s feeling at any moment get the best of him, I’d say he’s doing a pretty good job at controlling his emotions. At least, more so than I ever could. So maybe Harry is easily angered. But what matters is that he’s incredibly good at keeping it hidden. And ultimately, that’s all that matters.
“I’m way too sensitive over the smallest things.” Possibly. But it’s better than not being affected by anything. Everyone has insecurities that, if somebody makes a joke about them, will make us uncomfortable and self-conscious. But it’s something that we have to accept about ourselves, and learn to live with. Personally, I think that Harry’s sensitivity (we all remember the interview in which Harry had to stop for a moment and get his emotions in order before continuing) is something that makes him human. Harry is perfect, and his minor “flaws” are what keep him grounded, and what keep fans hoping that he’s not too far out of our league to notice us. So I’m going to end this on a high note; being sensitive is ultimately a good thing. :)
“I don’t have enough time in the day to do everything I want.” Harry, you’re a member of a world-famous boyband, and you’re also currently on tour. No one expects you to have enough time to do everything you need to. Just the fact that you and the other boys go through so much to travel the world solely to perform for your fans means absolutely everything to us. And while you may not be able to do everything you want, you sure as hell do things that other people can only dream of.
And since not being able to call your mother everyday also fits into this, I’m going to continue the last paragraph here. Your mother is so incredibly proud of you and your accomplishments, and although I don’t know the first thing about what your mother is like, I have no doubt that she understands that you may not have time to call her every day. (I just realized I’m now talking directly to you Harry. Whatever, I love you) Maybe you’re not able to call your mom everyday. But I know that she knows that you may not have time. And she respects that. It’s clear from what I’ve seen from your mother that she loves you to bits, and you love her just the same. A phone call is not going to change that. You two care so much about each other, and I know that you won’t let one phone call get between you.
“Far too greedy.” I’m sorry, what? Harry, did you not spend thousands of dollars on pizza, and then proceed to distribute it to people in LA who were having a hard time financially? You are such a kind person, and this point in your post is by far the one that is the most incorrect. I have never had a moment where I’ve read something online about you and thought, “Wow, that’s a bit greedy, isn’t it?” People wouldn’t make you their role model if you were actually greedy, and there are countless people who do in fact have you as their role model. And I’m one of them. So, long story short, you are not greedy in the slightest, and don’t ever think you are.
“My muscles aren’t nearly big enough.” Hahahahahahaha wrong. This is yet another “flaw” that isn’t true in the slightest, and it also goes hand-in-hand with my argument for “chubby.” People have distorted images of their bodies because of society/other people’s opinions of the “perfect” body, which makes people very insecure about the way they look. Harry, once again, you are absolutely perfect as you are, and all of your fans accept you regardless of your muscles not being “big enough” to you.
“My nose is a bit big.” I happen to absolutely adore everything about you, and your nose is just another thing for me to love. I feel like that was really cheesy. Oh well. It’s true. Since I don’t really have anything else to say besides “Haha Harry no it isn’t your nose is adorable,” I’m just going to leave it at that because I love you and everything about you and that’s all there is to it. :)
“I’m too loud at the wrong times.” Well, I’m not entirely sure what exactly you were referring to here, but I’m going to take it in the basic meaning for the sake of this- I don’t even know what this is anymore. I think I’m going to call it an essay because this thing is getting quite lengthy. Sorry. Anyway, I can’t really say anything to disprove this since, again, I don’t know you in person, and I’ve never actually seen an example of this. But even if this is true, this isn’t a deal breaker. Maybe you are, in fact, too loud at the wrong times. But everyone who loves you, accepts you for everything you are. And that includes the occasional loudness at the “wrong” times. (Is loudness even a word? Oh well. It is now.) And this argument is even more proof of your perfection.
“Not able to hold a long-term girlfriend.” I have been waiting the entire time I’ve been writing this post to touch on this subject. First off, just because you might not have had a stable relationship yet, doesn’t mean it’s necessarily your fault. Nor does it mean that you’re never going to find “the one.” Harry, you are perfect in every way, and anyone who doesn’t see that should never make you feel like you’re any less than perfect. And maybe I’m saying that just because I’m a fan, but it’s entirely true for the millions of fans that you have. And I, personally, would have no problem with being your long-term girlfriend. Just saying. ;) But honestly, you’re young. You’re 19 years old, and I have no doubt that one day you’re going to find the person who makes you truly happy, and they’re going to feel the same about you. Don’t lose hope just yet.
“I’m missing too many opportunities in my life.” Harry. Just to reiterate, you and the boys are currently the biggest boyband the world has ever seen. You are on your second tour, with a stadium tour coming up next year. You have won 60+ awards from 30+ different countries. You have a line of merchandise across the world. You have been immortalized at Madame Tussaud’s. You have 2 albums which immediately ended up at the top of the charts. You have a movie coming up in August. And it’s only been three years. Your fans couldn’t be prouder of you. The things you and the rest of the band have accomplished are, simply put, unbelievable. Obviously you might have had other opportunities in your life. But with the amount of accomplishments you have made. you can’t be expected to take every opportunity. No one can. But the ones you have taken have made all the difference.
This has been one of the longest essays I’ve ever written. I’m so sorry, this probably took forever to read. And if you actually did read this whole thing, I love you more than words can express. But I guess what I’m trying to say through this whole thing is that you are perfect in every way. And your fans love you not in spite of your flaws, but because of them. They’re what make you, you. Harry, you are my ultimate role model. I look up to you and respect you, and admire everything about you. Don’t let haters get you down, and don’t let other people’s opinions dictate who you are. I love you to the moon and back, and as long as you stay true to yourself, that will never change. Head up love, I’m here for you, and so are the rest of your fans. :)
PS Since I just wrote this whole thing, I suppose it won’t hurt to add my twitter. I’m @nadah09, and if you’re up to it, I’d love a follow. But no pressure. :)
I love you Harry, don’t ever forget that. :) xx
