It is simple.
What makes you different is what makes you interesting.
Revel in that thought
What you think makes you a freak, is what other people will find interesting about you.
Too often we try and hide our differences, we hide what is truly us. We often try to hide our eccentric thoughts and actions that are not the common "norm."
We should highlighting our uniqueness.
Look st the fasmous, they are seriously a wonky bunch, and it is exactly that sbout them that is interesting.
Like fish in water, it is hard for us to understand the culture around us, as it is deeply psrt of our psyche, but when we all buy the same clothes, watch the same television shows, we all read the same books, there is an innate pressure to conform. Everyone feels it, but not many admit it.
We work hard to blend, we work hard to not be different, but listen, different is what works.
Different is what makes this world better.
Those that do not conform, that ignore the common culture are the ones who shape our society for the future.
Those who simply fit in are not doing anything but existing. They simply consume.
Those who do not fit in, us freaks, we are creating and building and making.
Like a lighthouse on the rocks, those that are different shine a light on the "rocks" that could sink our culture within our society.
People want to be different, and they are afraid to show it. People may not always show their admiration, but they truly admire those that walk their own path.
Society may not appreciate it openly, and society may try to attack you and make you conform, but deep down, you have their respect.
Your goal then is to be yourself.
Be yourself so naturslly, be yourself in such a true way, that people cannot view you any other way.
Be real and true.
Naturalness of movement snd thought, with you being you, is what also fascinates others about you.
Be as radically freaking different as you can be, please, our society need it.
“We all are learning, modifying, or destroying ideas all the time. Rapid destruction of your ideas when the time is right is one of the most valuable qualities you can acquire. You must force yourself to consider arguments on the other side.
— Charles T. Munger”
