I used to worry about how I was being perceived and how society would treat me if I were more open about who I am, and it turned out to be wasted energy. Those who think you are a freak will continue to so why not just live the way you want to. There is nothing more liberating than this.
Therefore, unplug yourself from the pressure to live up to an artificial standard and live your life knowing that there is always someone out there too ignorant to understand what makes you tick except that they don’t matter.
Your opinion, and that of those you love, are the only ones that counts.
