  1. I do not know about good. But I have certainly been “different”. So much so that even my closest friends say of me “her? never mind her! she just HAS to be different!” And for all those decades when I struggled to find acceptance, and tried to shed my “different”-ness, I became lonely. The more I tried to court friendship and acceptance, the more I felt segregated. Now that I have accepted that I am me, people seem to accept me as well. I am no longer lonely, but I am still alone. And loving it!

  2. Thanks Rick. Samuel got it in a few words.

  3. Great remarkable issues here. I am very happy to look your article. Thank you so much and i’m having a look ahead to touch you. Will you please drop me a e-mail?

  4. What a great post! I teach marketing as part of a fashion design course and I talk about this stuff all the time to my students, but not in such an articulate way as you have.

  5. Works for me too :) I used to have self-confident issue, having conscience that says things against the society norms but somewhat too afraid to be ‘me’, too afraid to be different. worse, i used to think being me was wrong, because no one in the society seemed to have similar thoughts. so for more than 20 yrs I hadn’t been me… till i found there’s a group with ideology and way of life similar to my idea of living all this while. then i thought, i guess it’s ok to be ‘me’ and it’s not wrong at all. but i turned out not being able to live among my own family, kept getting away, till i finally managed to have my own little family — husband with similar belief and lovely son. after 20 plus yrs or so, i finally found ‘home’, seemed odd to the outside world but fulfilling enough for both my husband and i.

    as for business marketing, i always have this idea that the best marketing is by being simple and genuine. and somehow, i found little had shared similar ideas in my office. i took a step back, and i found doing my own thing is quite liberating. i’m comfortable. i’m happy. and i can blog. woohoo!
