I do not play video games because I’m a child.
I do not watch cartoons because I’m dumb.
I do not enjoy anime because I’m weird.
I do not train in the gym for superiority.
I do not have tattoos because I’m a rebel.
I do not grow a beard because I’m lazy.
I do these things because I feel comfortable doing them. Do what you love and ignore the negative criticism.
I have felt a lot of negativity, not here but in real life, and I felt the need to put something out there for anyone else feeling the same. Remember that sometimes people want to bring you down for no reason, and there is no reason to listen to them.
