Dare to be Different…

Dare to be different, Dare to be YOU.

Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

It takes a lot of courage to have a different opinion from your friends. Or your crowd.
And it is a good thing too.I applaud all those who walk this road.
Belonging to one school of thought is one thing, but not having the independence of thought is something else all together.
One of the ways to sharpen character is to be able to stick to your decision, come what may. Be able to call out wrong for what it is without fear or favour. Being able to withstand criticism so as to be able to defend your moral responsibility.
That does not make you proud, it makes you different and that is the whole constitution of you.

After a certain age one should discard any thoughts of popularity. When you are not in high school, then it does not matter who appoints them selves head of cheer leaders. Because you do not have to laugh at their every joke, or belong to some clique…and here I have to be categorical; Woman if you are over 27 years of age and you still care what your group of friends think, you need a shrink. If you are above that age and you still move around in a clique, you need the pope. If you are within that age group and you cannot for the love of Gos chastise your friend because you need to stay popular, you need Jesus.

It takes a strong character to be able to stick to your guns, it doesn’t matter who is for or against what matters is; Are you right? Are your claims justifiable?
If you can justify what you are claiming and you know for a fact that you are right then they can kick you out of the club membership.
And. You. Will. Not. Care.
