In this society where we dont leave our sick and weak to die in the street we have people with a natural compulsion to distance themselves from others. Thus giving us our since of exclusivness, and social structure. So we have punks, goths, LARPers, and all that crap.
Punk(hooray): I hate you cause you victimize me, you cant think further than prom, you follow like a flock crows shit you even squak like a crow. But I realize that your fascism makes our culture possible. Thankyou nazi.
Prep(durdur): Now get yo head in that toilet!
Punk(hooray): No bitch *stabs with sword*
ex. for outcast
Outcasts are usually the nicest people EVER. And it is a shame how some people treat them. They don't have a lot of friends (or none at all), because most of the time people see different and unique as really weird. So they think that the outcast is weird even though they are special. Outcasts usually don't ever go on dates, because they are too nervous to talk to who they like. And then that person they like thinks that the outcast has no interest in them. But really that person almost means the world to the outcast, and it's too bad that these unique people don't go on dates more often. Also, outcasts usually get really nervous in front of others, and they don't talk a lot because of that. And as sad result, people think that there is something wrong with the outcast, so they stay away from the outcast. And usually outcasts don't start up conversations because they are in their own world. Which is something wonderful about them. AND ONE DAY THEY WILL BE REALLY SUCCESSFUL. Outcasts are usually the most wonderful people out there, and it's sad to think that nobody appreciates their beauty.
SUMMARY: An outcast is a person who doesn't fit in because they are more unique and gifted than others, and the others don't appreciate that, even though the outcast is the nicest person you can ever imagine.
So when you see an outcast, do me a favor and go holla at da young playa fo me.
Dat outcast is such a nice and special person, WHY DOESN'T ANYONE APPRECIATE DAT?
When most people see someone special, they get jealous and trash the beauty of god's gift in the outcast.
Adult who was once popular's thoughts:
"Dat outcast, I remember him, poor guy didn't even have one friend, and now he is a hip-hop legend."
Social skills definitely have something to do with it, but these are hard to quantify since there are a variety of ways that people relate to others, many of them with considerable success. It really is a matter of whether or not you have found your Feng Shui (figure of speech) in relating to others and have that developed that special "It". "It" is not a given thing (people in circumstancial isolation, such as prison or homlessness, lose their social skills foremost), but comes from
1. Confidence in self-exposure,
2. Practice and Interaction,
3. Analyzing Mistakes
The idea that social skills are naturally endowed stems from a certain type of personality (extrovert) that gravitates toward those three, but anybody who isn't One Hundred Percent happy with being completely alone can become comfortable with these habits.
Don't get rid of that vivd imagination and dynamic mind just because it's an internal trait, but share it with other people in an engaging (meaningful to them) way, and good results can be expected. If not, the problem might be in your environment or with the individuals that surround you. You don't have to be slave to the social structure, but that's no reason to be a slave to lonliness.
Followers of Christ: This issue brings up a responsibility on our part. The stone that the builders rejected becomes the cornerstone, and those who aren't sick have no need of a physician. Just like any other social group, we are also sinners and we tend to exclude others. The only difference with us is that we just happen to be on celestial parole, which is a given privelige, not a hard-earned quality. Remember that we are intended to be recognized for our indescriminate love, not for being so much holier than thou, so be a neighbor to whoever needs it, especially those who are considered lowly in whatever way.
Also realize that "Go forth and make discliples of all nations..." is not a comission to ram your faith down someone's pee-hole and give a Holy "Screw You" to those who don't accept, but an urging to offer a simple invitation: "Will you be a part of this good thing I've found?" Good luck, but remember: Far beyond how many converts you attract is how fervently you have loved your neighbor.
"...if I have not loved, then I am nothing." ~Paul The Apostle
