Otherness

There are two kinds of people; those who’ll accept you for who/what you are -irrespective of whether they agree or not, and those who just won’t!
I’m starting to believe that most of us arent fully capable of the former and i’m really trying to understand why. Is uniformity (of mind, taste, opinion etc.) a human need of some sort? Is that why trends exist?

Its quite amusing, sometimes, how people sometimes react to the ‘unconventional’. It almost seems like a crime not to succumb to popular opinions or habits or whatever. You get labeled. Strange, oldfashioned, rigid, prudish…those are the few i can think of from the top of my head. But my question is, is it really necessary? We were all given the gift of free will. Everyone should have the right to choose what they like and what they don’t and it should be okay! Do my preferances offend you? Get over it! It gets rather tedious having to sugarcoat everything because of what everyone will think. So i just don’t.

As a wise person once said “Do what you feel in your heart to be right. You’ll be criticized anyway.”
