Ever heard the term “common sense”? While it may be useful for completely unreasonable people, if you want to stand out, you will have a hard time doing if you blend in with everybody else.
"Following the herd only makes you a sheep."
Which means; you are just a regular guy. You are not pushing standards or breaking new limits. You simply stay within the status-quo.
Is that where you want to stay? Don’t you have something more to prove? It is in you. Don’t lie to yourself. Let your soul glow. If your friends around you cannot accept it, with 6 billion other human beings, somebody else will. Big and balanced personalities win.
