Square Peg

Everywhere I go I see people who dress the same , only associate with people like themselves and who appear to be hostile to anyone who they do not understand or who they cannot catagorise. Most of these people enjoy social respectability and they are not called to account for their apparent utter lack of free-thinking, and sheep-like conformity.
When I am in public I often feel on the end of cold stares because I dress how I feel [not outrageously by the way] and do not belong to any of their cliques. The ironic thing is that many of the people I feel are judging me would be considered intelligent and discerning.

The world makes me sick. We are slowly being herded towards being a block of clones.

Sorry if I come across as a petulant self centred teenager [I'm 45] but I really do believe that the vast majority of people are gutless sheep who surrender their individuality in order to fit in.
That's fine but don't judge others who think for themselves!

I admit I'm a damaged person but I do not dress in a way that demands attention particularly, it's just different from the norm in a rather subtle way.


Thanks for reading.

Thanks for your post Square Peg, I realise I have responded very late, but I am also frustrated by the lack of imagination and insight that people express in their day to day interactions with others. It seems like we are living in a period of time where some people feel a sense of entitlement when it comes to being hostile towards people who are quietly or otherwise different.
