Sometimes you just have to accept that what you do is going to make people act cold and stony toward you. If you are going to stand up and say what others won’t then you will be crucified. They say the longest hair gets cut first. I care, but not in the way that people are jerks, but the way that my friends can be so cold and stony about it. I have to choose my words carefully when I text Kyle back, because if I slip up there will be a certain amount of hell to pay.
But on the good side, when you do something so profound that it makes an indelible mark on people, others notice. Even if they don’t agree with you, they notice and hear you out. And in the long run that is cool and makes things seem a little worth it.
