Do you always try to fit in the crowd? I remember when I was in high school, I always wanted to fit in the crowd so I can always be in the "In crowd". Be popular, have popular friends and etc. Coz at that time, when you're not "in", then you will be in the group where people make fun of you or in the group where people jus dont notice. But when I get older, things change. I dont craved to be in the "in" group and crowd anymore. I just do want I want and it depends to them how they see and accept me. Right now, Im not anymore into the "in" crowd but I also know that Im not in the "out" crowd. Maybe just in the middle. An independent party so to speak.

No I never did try to fit in nor do I now. I like to be different and myown person. Makes me different and when you are different the you stand out and not a cookie cutter type person. Cookie cutter people are made from the same mold. Be your own person and break the mold.

Yah, it feels good to be different and independent from all the social expectations. Thanks

I tried to it in with what were the "popular" girls at my school until I was about 14. I then realised that by doing that I didn't actually like the person I was. So I became the person who I am today. I lost friends and gained new ones, I made an impression for myself. I decided if people didn't like me for who I am then there's no point in having them. I've met people who don't seem to understand this but their just close minded. I have people who like me for who i am, and I'm creative in my own way. So much so that I set up my own jewellery business and website reflecting myself in the items I make. If I don't like it I won't sell it!
