Alright well this post has been bubbling in my brain for the last week or so, and I'm pretty sure it's going to be a little scathing. Sorry...except not really.
Have you ever met someone you thought was a complete individual, and because of that you instantly liked them? Well, I have. And no, it's not myself. I'm not an individual. I'm a....well I'm every cliche in the book, which is why I find it so refreshing when I find people that are okay with their strangeness and just stick it to the man. Of course there's a lot of posers out there that pretend like they're individuals when really they're duller than a pencil. Anyways, getting off topic again. My point is, when the individual sells out. And then world turns a little grayer. Usually it happens in the quest to gain another's approval. And it disgusts me. I understand that sometimes we evolve and change and whatever, but there's just a line you shouldn't cross. If someone (especially in a romantic relationship) can't accept your quirks and anomalies, what are you even doing in the relationship? What's the point of molding yourself to someone else's expectations only to find out you lost yourself along the way? I always thought the whole point is to find someone who compliments your quirks...not blend into the scenery. Such a waste of a life.
