YES!! It's OK to stand out. If people can't accept you for who you are, then they aren't worth your time.

It's okay to stand out =) Don't worry about your best friends calling you "emo" or something. My dad used to call me goth. And my best friend has told me a few times within the past year that I dress like my mom. My brother says some of my clothing is obnoxious. Seriously, your style is your style and that's the way it is, and there are people out there with similar styles or they wouldn't make the clothes in the first place. As for your music, don't worry about that either. If you like it, listen to it. If your friends don't, they don't have to listen to it, you know what I mean?

 

Everyone is there own unique kind of person. Just be yourself...and one day it'll pay off. =)

Cookies....: I HATE the word "emo"! YOU ARE NOT EMO!! I'm sorry, but even if people say things like that as a joke, I get angry. I agree with CallMeFelix.

I never did fit in, but I tried, and that was probably a mistake. I'm homeschooled now and all my friends are just as weird as I am.

if ur friends feel that way about you, I'm nto sure how close you guys are. I can tell my friends anything, and we're not really the same, but they acept me compeletely. maybe there are people that are more like you. and Yes, just because ur more interesting then everyone else is not a bad thing.

don't worry about not fitting in, it makes you unique. me and my friends are all different than most, and we get along well. i'm sure there are plenty of people out there like you, and you'll meet them someday. :)

i love standing out its really fun to mess with people and do things they totally dont expect :) also if you stand out people are more likely to look up to you than if you just fit the mold and fade into the background. even the people who tell you they think you are weird secretly think ur cool :)

standing out is perfectly fine! I think it's awesome to stand out! I always stand out. It's really fun because that's just how you figure out who you are:) If someone doesn't agree with you standing out, then there someone that doesn't like to be true to themselves.
