Love this post Jessica! I gave up on social acceptance when I was teenager. My brother showed he did not care, but secretly did care. However, I actually did not care what others thought. I did what I did and wore what I wore because I liked it.
Now I guess I have more understanding of social norms and others, but I still do my own thing. In many ways I might care too much about some things, but I try to keep going anyway I can.
