I think as a society we tend to focus on what others around us think of us. We stress about how we are perceived by those around us wondering if we can “make the cut” In the end all we end up doing is hurting ourselves. We focus so much on pleasing others that we forget whats most important in our lives…. Our own happiness. Kids in school being bullied because they are different? Because they don’t fit the societal norm? So?! If they are happy being different let them. Couples not being allowed to marry because the happen to have the same genitalia? If that’s how they roll then let em at each other. We aren’t here to pass judgement. In fact, isn’t it mostly out of our own fears and insecurities that we judge those around us? So take a look at yourself. Do what makes you happy. Then worry about those around you. If you can help them achieve what you’ve achieved without sacrificing your own happiness then do it. because the world needs more smiling face. Live, Laugh, Love. Preach acceptance. But most importantly, Don’t just talk about it. Be about it.
"Settle down, it’ll all be clear
Don’t pay no mind to the demons
They fill you with fear
The trouble it might drag you down
If you get lost, you can always be found
Just know you’re not alone”
