I live in my head a lot. I say a long as your taking care of business then who cares:))
Are you open with your imagination or opinion? I found it easier to live in space when I'm open with what I think. Surrounding myself with the things like Nerd culture, music, and tons of information makes my day run smoother. As far as someone hating on me for being different I stop caring less and less as I get older. It's such a strong feeling of freedom that peoples opinions kinda just stop mattering to you:))
Its great, just keep it hidden or people will attack it
The real world is ****. Im telling you, you want a safe refuge, and dont want people ******** all over it.
Let them. If managed it the right way you'll become so strong that you'll get to a point where non of them matter. You'll get to a point where you'll become as strong and intelligent as your Avatar @o@
