Have you ever felt that no matter what you did, you never felt accepted by your peers? When I was in high school, I was never accepted by my peers. I was the one everyone loved to pick on. I was the one whose locker was broken into, I was the one whose lock was switched around so I was late to class, I was the one who would have something stolen from them while out of the room, I was the one whose locker was defaced with degrading words pertaining to race of people I know. Even now, I still feel like I don't really belong anywhere. I feel like I don't belong even in my own family, I feel like a perpetual outsider, like I don't belong in a family like mine. I feel like an alien sometimes because my interests are different than those of others, my musical tastes are different than those of others, my taste in movies are different, my sense of style is just a tad retro, and my opinions on when it comes to guys I think are physically attractive are different. IDK, I just feel like I'm an outsider. I feel like no matter what I do, I'll never be accepted by people I know, and I always get this feeling that people make fun of me behind my back, like when I have my back to them, they choose then to start saying little silent insults about me. Well, if I ever catch anyone saying something about me, they'll definitely get an earful from me!
But, I look at it this way; you know how they say '1 in a million', well, I'm usually the one in a million, the one person who likes something that someone else may not. I'm proud of who I am, and if someone finds a problem with who I am, they can shove it, because I'm not changing for anyone. I am who I am. I'm not going to be one of these people who changes personalities and likes at the drop of a hat just to fit in. What happened to individuality? I guess that went out the window when people decided popularity was more important than being a unique individual. I'm not going to let someone mold me into what they want, screw that!
The reason I'm doing a post on things I like is because I want to show all who read this post that I'm not going to change who I am jut to fit in. Believe me when I say this, I really thought about changing who I was in high school just to be liked, but then, if I did that, I'd be a rather boring person, because all my high school classmates seemed too interested in music like rap. That's not to say rap is bad, I just don't care for it, I mean, the rap music that they listened to was about raping/beating/killing women or children, committing crimes, doing drugs, drinking alcohol, etc. That's not music, that's just noise in my opinion.
