I've always been an odd ball, a social outcast, a freak by my own admission. I think in more recent years, I've really come to appreciate that about myself more and more. What surprises me a bit is how my feelings have changed about it.
I was picked on a lot as a kid. Kids are cruel little fuckers, and that hurt.. a lot. Somehow though, later in life, I actually crave that type of attention again. I have way more confidence in myself now. I'm not afraid or ashamed of who I am, and would almost dare someone to make fun of me as they did when I was a kid.
It actually feels quite nice to be on society's fringes. Like.. wtf do I even have to live up to?! This one's for me.
