Why Bother?

I feel that it is important to be true to yourself, as you will only get hurt by following an unsuitable path. I spent a lot of time doing what I thought I "should" do and it only ever brought me misery. Now I am doing what feels natural to me and just being myself I find that things are a lot better and life more fulfilling. If we were all the same, the world would be so dull.


To be honest, some days I don't even feel a part of society and I ask myself, what the heck's the point of trying to impress a world that you don't always feel connected to? As long as it hurts no one else then you should be free to dress how you wish and do what you wish. If we were all meant to be identical, we would reproduce by splitting in half like bacteria.


It annoys me that so many people are obsessed with trying to force people to conform when it's not always in the person's best interests. I am who I am and I'm proud of it. I will let you carry on with your life in peace if you grant me the same respect.
