Me: Hey Facebook friends, How does it feel to be my second choice!
Me: Tumblr, Bitches!
Me: I need new friends
Everyone Else: I need new friends
Me: Wanna be friends then?
Everyone Else: ......
Just this week, I’ve been berated with what’s “Not appropriate” or “Looks weird” or “Isn’t acceptable” by people in my life. Well I want to say a giant, I don’t give a flying bats popular uncle, what people think of me or what I do.
Let me give some people an imaginary news flash (Imaginary because they most likely won’t see this, and if they did they still wouldn’t because their head is too far up..), life has nothing to do with social norms, or what’s cool and popular, nobody actually cares if something makes you better than someone else, because at the end of life, when you’re on your death bed, it won’t be a look back at how cool people thought you were, or how pretty, popular, manly, feminine, gay, athletic, straight, religious, or anything else you were! When I’m preparing to die, I want to look back and say I was happy. I watched the shows I wanted to watch, listened to the music I wanted to hear, made the friends I wanted to make, laughed when things were funny, cried when things were sad, danced when there was music, and had the time of my life doing all the things I loved.
To hell with the world trying to put everyone in boxes, stand up and stand out, for what makes you happy.
Now that I actually have followers to talk to, I should probably officially introduce myself. My name is Dan, Nice to meet all you awesome people! Feel free to say “hey” in my ask whenever!
:-) Happy to have. I’m confident in my awkwardness though, which is the important part. People don’t care when it really comes down to it, they just want you to be ok with yourself.
I do have gay friends, who are absolutely awesome. I’m a fully well adjusted 21st century American who thinks everyone has the right to pursue what makes them happy. I’m by no means a judge of what’s right and wrong for people to do, and as long as it’s not hurting anyone than be happy for God’s sake!
