I heard a comment today. "To be succesful, we must conform". The person who said it was actualy talking about buisness, but I thought, it really applies in life too. If we're different, in some noticable way, be that personality, emotionaly, physicaly, then we tend to not be trusted. We're shunned. Rejected. Of course, everyone gets rejected at some point in their lives. What seems to matter is what happens after. What support is there? Encouragment? Anyone to lean on, trust? When those things aren't there, it seems like one rejected leads to another, and another, and another. A rejection-snowball is created, and it just keeps getting bigger and bigger.
