“Are you sure you should have all of those tattoos?”

“I can’t believe you shaved your head!  People are going to call you a lesbian.”

“Aren’t you worried about what people will think?”

“Aren’t you a little old to be collecting toys?”

Any of this sound familiar?  If so, then you and I are kindred spirits and we need to share a coffee.

Individuality is one of the core foundations of humanity and I naturally gravitate to those who rise to the challenge in a world where people are so afraid of being judged or humiliated that they rarely stand for anything at all.  

I know.  I was one of them.  Was.
