When you do things differently, people don’t like it. People are afraid of it. People will sometimes even hate you for it. I like unicorns and sunshine. I don’t like making people afraid… or the thought of having someone hate an idea I have? It makes me cringe. The second you get a little bit of recognition, you know it’s coming. The post-recognition fall-out. It’s not a popular thing to talk about, but it’s real.
But, I’ve reached a point where I’ve realized something. Doing what I believe in is far more important than holding back to please others. It’s not about fitting in after all. It’s about following your heart, your gut, and your passion. No matter what.
There, I said it. On my blog. Where it’s mostly unicorns and rainbows.
Now? I just need to live it.
