COOL IS YOU
Don’t conform to others' standards when they don't measure up to yours. Whenever faced with a tough decision, always do what you feel is right, even if it may not be the popular decision. You will earn much more respect from peers by standing up for something you believe in than by following the crowd. In the end, they are nothing more than just blind sheep following the herd off the edge of a cliff. Always remember: You have more purpose in life than to ruin it.
Everyone wants to fit in and, at times, I was no different. It wasn’t until my "growing up" process that I really begin to feel comfortable enough with myself to be willing to stand out. I began to desire to be one in a million and not one of a million. After all, if you don’t stand for something, you won't be standing at all.
Moral of this story: Be yourself and be cool.
