I actually had a debate on this subject with a friend just a week or two ago. Well, it was whether we should be striving to become better as individuals, based on the behaviour and actions of our role models. But, basically, whether people need to improve themselves.Where I come from, they tell you to never stop trying to better yourself, take your bad habits and change them.
People think I'm weird, but there's nothing wrong with me. It's just that I'm different from the others. I don't think what they think, and I see the world differently to them.You should care, because being likable is what'll get you in life.
Yeah, you're qualified and all that jazz. But I've been told for ages that it's the interview that will count.
So you may be mega smart, but in a world where EVERYONE is getting qualifications now, the one who is awkard, smelly, or just a dickhead is the one who probably won't get the job.
Believe it or not, if the majority thinks your a wierdo, chances are there is something slightly wrong with your personality.
I'm not saying you should try and change- dye your hair blonde or get a tan. I'm saying don't take the attitude 'people don't like me so I'm UNIQUE'- maybe just try and dampen your most annoying aspects like...
Do you constantly talk about anime? Or japan? IRL, STOP IT
Because you know what, no matter how shallow it seems, you should care about what people think. Because you aren't the one who owns that big company you want a job in.
The problem with caring sometimes, is when it goes over board. When you destroy your own person to fit that of others.
Would you like a digger to make your digging of your own grave quicker? I stick out. I am that nerd and weirdo. And OK with it. I'm happy with who I am, and I'm not changing a thing about me. I have friends who like me for who I am. Everything I am. I would rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I'm not. After all, having to change yourself to get friends is pathetic. These people who fake themselves for friends tell me I'm the loser! They need to get some perspecive! I'm not the one having to change myself so someone will like me! They're the weirdos, in the end. People like me are a genuine people. I wish everyone could just be themselves. It's awful to think others change just because of what others think. Stuff 'em. Not everybody will like you. Face it. But some will. I dunno. Society today is so sad.You should care only to the point that you don't stick out as some sort of nerd or weirdo. So basically you care to a point that makes you some what normal.
