Something everybody is scared to be, for they fear they will be rejected by society if they are. Those who are different are often labeled as: weird, crazy, deficient, stupid, a loser, or just a "reject".
Me: I despise people who just roll along with the population, instead of making their own path. People who can't develop critical thinking, therefore they go by the information that this close-minded society has sewn into them. People with a mediocre mentality, that does not allow them to look outside the box and to make their own opinions, thus shaping themselves into just another "brick on society's wall". A society that encourages order, discipline, and uniformity, instead of originality and spontaneity. A society made by them. Ironic isn't it?

Be different.

What has gotten an extreme negative connotation in our society due to immense peer pressure and shame. Many people have a great fear of being different or standing out due to not wanting to be outcasted or isolated by his/her peers, which can be very harmful to a person’s health. Because of this, many people will give up their true potential because they don’t want to be viewed negatively by their peers. But, think about how boring it would be if every single person acted the exact same. Imagine all the great technological advancements we’d miss out on if innovators like Albert Einstein or Leonardo Da Vinci acted like everyone else at the time. We need people who are different in our society, people who offer a wide range of perceptions and experiences to share with the world. Peer pressure is a strong force that can either be your best friend or worst enemy, depending on who you surround yourself with. So try your best to find the people who support your inner strengths and will help push you to limits you never knew possible
Normality is impossible to achieve because there isn’t really a definitive example of pure normality. I mean some people do get called terms like “average joe” or “normie” but even that’s still very objective. I mean, not even every 2 “average joes” or “normies” are exactly the same and will have their differences, even if their very small. I’m not forcing anyone to be different or to rebel against the majority and I don’t shun anyone who fits the criteria of an “average joe”. If your inner desires and talents match what is appreciated in your community then keep on doing it. But, try not to let the idea of “normal” hinder you from doing what makes you happy, because when you look back when you’re older and are satisfied with what you did throughout your life, you’ll end up being much happier than you would’ve been if you succombed to a lifestyle that goes against your desires.

When you do something that is odd/unexpected/eccentric that ends up owning the person or thing you did it to. Usually a spontaneous flair of expertise/finesse that comes across as abnormal or strange.
OMG that guy got a head shot while jumping from a building to a ledge, DIFFERENT!

Man, Mayweather gave that hatton a left hook while moving backwards, he's different.

Shit, you don't train or eat or anything and you deadlift 160kg like that, you're different.
