You don't have to fit in with others to express yourself. Most of the time feeling like not fitting in is something that is mostly in your mind, even
though you may think that others aren't accepting you.
I suggest you stop worrying about everyone else's opinions, and stop even worrying so much about the opinion you have of yourself. Just be the best

to my playlist at times to refocus my mind. It's a special playlist that I doubt I will ever delete. It's become a part of me, in a good way.
Music can be a positive and powerful force when used wisely.
