Being different or wanting something other than the norms is can be costly… You are seen as the odd one; you are weird because you want something different. You have to explain yourself for being different because that’s not what is expected of you.
The unfortunate part is, most people don’t see the struggle of being different because they are so focused on why you are not like everyone else. They don’t know the effort of having to pretend to fit in… the struggle of waking up every day to live a pretense life… but maybe if people are not too focused on trying to understand why others are different and instead try to understand the struggles of being different, perhaps it would be easier for people who find themselves different from everyone else to adjust.
