If you are different in any way, you may not fit in the typical social cliques at school. But there is a tribe out there for you, a group of people who share your interests and values. It is just a question of finding your people.
A lot of people who have gone on to change the world have actually thought radically different from the mainstream. Steve Jobs had an unusual interest in calligraphy and simplicity in college, those two personal interests lead to creating Apple, one of the most creative companies in the world.
Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do. ?

Lady Gaga was teased for being weird and different in school
Being teased for being ugly, having a big nose, being annoying. ‘Your laugh is funny, you’re weird, why do you always sing, why are you so into theater, why do you do your make-up like that? – Lady GaGa
Yeah, she was different from some of her more ordinary peers, when she left school what made her different led to her huge success.
If you are judged for being different in any way, maybe your appearance, musical tastes or your interests try not to let it get you down. What you’re being criticized for now could turn out to be your biggest strength in the future.
Christina Hendricks didn’t fit in when she was at high school
“My school days were pretty unhappy. I had the worst high school experience ever. I was a bit of a goth with purple hair and I was also part of the drama group, so my friends and I were all weird theatre people and everyone just hated us.”
It seems like all the kids who were different in some way on the people who go on to accomplish great things in the world.
