Be the Misfit
When people are young, it's hard to be different than the other people their own age. If someone is a misfit for any reason he or she can get picked on, called names, be uninvited to events, and have other pitfalls of social unacceptance. However, as people grow older the qualities a young misfit learns suddenly become desired qualities, such as persistence, patience, and creativity. A misfit might also learn over time to discern between emotions and facts, because emotions hurt others, but facts just are what they are. A little discernment goes a long way when interpreting human communication. I'm not saying it is ever easy to be a misfit. I am saying being a little awkward at times when one is younger helps when inevitably for the awkward times when one is older.
