I've read other post like this and I'm going to ramble for a minute.
The majority of people will never understand why some of us would rather have fun than worry about standing out in the crowd. That majority also typically lacks imagination, creativity and definitely pluck. Some people like to be limited and ignorantly follow like sheep. I pity them because they only see what others have seen or experienced. I'd rather have a smile on my face with bugs in my teeth, bruises, scrapes and cuts than be a spectator or laugh at someone having fun and be more like a bleeting sheep. I cannot understand how someone can enjoy being un-special or marginal. Aren't whole subsets of society fighting marginalization? Misery loves company and your "friends" would gain temporary comfort from you abandoning your happiness to join them. I try to avoid the helplessly miserable and am selective about them who I let know me. Going further; Who has ever said, heard or thought this: "he/she is so _____________(fascinating, captivating, appealing, attractive; amusing, entertaining, stimulating, intriguing) because they're so ____________(dull, tedious, monotonous, monochrome, unexciting, unimaginative, uninspiring, lackluster, plain-vanilla, white-bread, etc,.)?
Fast is cool till you lose your license (due to speeding) and end up riding the bus. I love this signature and it pretty much sums it up: "I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you" - Lizrdbrth. Simplicity is an art form not everyone can appreciate. - Me
Keep your head up! If you enjoy what you're doing and aren't at risk of being arrested, you're doing it right AND people will be jealous.
