Here is a great quote from someone named Alfa (Alfawrites).
"You're going to meet people who are intimidated by you. You're different. People don't know how to react or how to accept someone who doesn't follow the crowd... They are not used to someone who doesn't try to fit in - So instead of bolstering your uniqueness, they'll try and make you feel like you're weird or damaged. I'm here to offer some well earned advice; - Sure them."
That is exactly right and I can't really elaborate on it too much.
Hey, you are a little bit different. (Different to what? I don't know.) People just can't handle it and as long as you can handle it, that is all that matters at the end of the day.
They are going to try and bring you down because they are uncomfortable.
By the way, their lack of comfort has nothing to do with you.
Do what you have to do to be true to yourself.
