People fear what they don't understand.


I'm sort of your average 14 year old guy, sort of. I don't follow the crowd, it's not who I am. I don't listen to the music most other kids listen to, as a matter of fact, I can't stand the music they listen to. I don't watch the type of movies that others might like, horror movies are just my thing. I don't wear what's "in style". My jeans and music t-shirts suit me just right. You might say that I'm "not in style", but I'm perfect out of style. Some people look down on me for being "different" than other kids. Almost like I'm a bad influence because I listen to "violent, disturbing music" to say the least, and wear shirts of my favorite bands that people think I'm crazy for liking. And watching crazy movies. I find it funny that people can be so closed minded about things. People fear what they don't understand. I don't care if people think I'm weird, I just know that they just don't understand me, and if they did, they'd like me alot more. But I'll let them be so they can find out on their own for now. I like being different than most people, without it, I wouldn't be me. And guess what, I like me.


The author's comments:
I wanted to express who I am in a short, understandable way. Just so people can understand that I might be different, but I don't care how much they think I'm weird or anything. I like who I am and I wouldn't give me away to be like someone else, ever.

It's good that you like who you are and are true to yourself. At my house we don't have TV and my parents haven't had a new CD since '87, so I only know songs from the seventies and eighties. I don't even know what the latest fashion is. And I watch really old movies. So what if we don't exactly fit in? It's good to like yourself! I'm glad you are who you are and I'm glad I am who I am.
