I'm sorry if I sound like a heartless robot, but I never understood feeling ostracized. I fit the strange loner stereotype perfectly, but I think the
opinions of people are only as important as you make them. If I see you as an asshole I don't value your opinion enough for it to hurt me.
I had a girl I liked in high school make a joke of my appearance in front of her friends, they all laughed hysterically but it had no effect on me, it
only changed my opinion of them. I won't judge myself by what other people think or do. In my mind there is no such things as social status either,
only cool people and assholes. If we get along I'll treat you like family, if we don't, you can # off. My clothes ain't trendy enough? Ok, cool. I
wish you luck in your egotistical search of clones.
It's ok to spread awareness that it hurts, but assholes will never go away. More effort has to go into building our immune systems. There are some
old saying about holding hot stones and getting burned. If you don't learn to let it go, you take some of the blame.
This isn't directed at you buzzy, but I feel like our society as a whole is getting dangerously close to the promotion of self loathing. The PC
police and activist groups have brought a lot of attention to pain, and we've made it very important. We have all these forbidden words, and we
scream at the top of our lungs any time someone does something that might hurt someone somewhere, but where is the empowerment? We have the protective
bubbles and loving arms, but what are doing to make people not need them?
