How to survive as a weirdo?




Some people were born to act accord social rules. As they have drafts what to say or to do in particular situations. "He knows to behave" or " She is well educated" are just some of the descriptions. When you fit in, you are safe from gossips and your circle of friends is big. Or, you just think in this way? If you are clumsy and simply stand out from usual patterns, you will have a problem to be part of society, but your failures will help you to be more original.

Did you feel that you are part of the wrong movie? Your personal twilight zone doesn't have to be your disaster. For example, if you stuck between female friends who know all about baking cakes, and you wish to disappear, it doesn't mean that you are a shame for woman species. I personally felt much better when I was drinking beer and watching football match Croatia - Mexico with my husband and male friends when we all had so much fun even result was not good for us. I did not see myself with women who trade recipes for domestic cookies.  Probably I would yawn from boredom.


When you can be sure that you are different?

When everyone has something to say in the group, and you don't have an opinion or you get bored.

When you feel that nobody listen to your suggestions.

When others start to whisper and gossip about you, and you feel uncomfortable.

When you say something that makes others wonder.


One interesting fact is: woman outsider has harder way than an outsider. A different guy is sexy and cool, but rebellious, strange woman is a danger. She scares men. She could be a victim of bullying. Also, she could be declared as a target for sex, because her mind is opened. It is not the rarity that guys like to have sex with freaky women. She might know different things in bed, and she doesn't run away from exploring. 

How you will play in this wrong movie, it depends on your character. Will you back up because all are against you, or you will walk in front of this crowd?

Some tips in this case:

Smile if crowd start to mock you. A smile is a sign of self-confidence.

Reply them on the cool way. Don't make your voice tremble. 

Don't try to persuade others that you are not different than them. This is your protecting brand. If you listen heavy metal, and they are listening to pop, it doesn't make you a bad person. You are not a satanic person with horns.

Say what you think even this is opposite from majority. Yet they stare at you.


Weirdos are more intelligent people and they have keys to freedom. If your clothes are different, if your accent is funny, if you eat vegan foods and everyone around you eat meat, you don't have to be ashamed because of this. One my friend came in continental part of Croatia, and she was from Dalmatia. Her accent was different but she was talking loud and with the smile, even people looked at her as she is an alien. Be proud of your roots no matter where are you from, who are your parents and who is your partner. That is the only way that you play the main role in this wrong movie, and this is not the role of social clown.

Women are not weak as they look

Where is a fight, there is love. Since childhood opposite genders tease each other, make conflicts and argue, just to compare their mental strength. Men are strong gender by nature, but many of them underestimate woman’s will and character. Some judgments define a woman as fragile, sensitive creature, and the man who is educated in the traditional family will often underestimate a woman. He will see the weak creature in the corner with a face full of tears. Well, a woman can defend herself in thousand ways. She will seduce you to obey you. She will pretend weakness just to take revenge on you if you humiliate her. Be ready for her trick as on poker table. Especially men who are used to silent, obedient woman can’t count on such resistance. Remember, the woman is the one who is working and clean house after work, carry for kids and for your laundry and your meal. Women are multi-tasking, so how can they be weak? When you fall in love with a woman who can care for herself, she doesn’t …

Are you the hunter or the kill?

Criticism is a sensitive field. It is easy to give critics, to mock someone, but it is not easy to receive this in return and to make a joke by yourself. Do you laugh at yourself, in public? Do you allow friends to tease you, even this means that they will overrate your faults and make your values smaller? There is a thin line between social clown and person who loves to make jokes about yourself. If you are a hunter, if you respect yourself, you will allow the certain dose of criticism but you will not be a doormat. If you ask me to whom you must be grateful, maybe my answer will surprise you. Yes, i am grateful to my parents because they give me motivation, strong will, and attitude. I am grateful to my sister because she stood on my side when i felt miserable. I am grateful to my husband for accepting me as i am, even when i was the worst nightmare. Mostly, i am grateful to my rivals, to develop my strength. As i passed my initiation, faced with many troubles and get out from bigg…

Are you grateful for the things you have ?

Are you grateful for the things you have in your life? I don’t think about furniture or new plates, i think about your private and professional life. Sometimes, we forget to save gratitude in our heart because our mind is too busy by dreaming about something we still did not realize. Gradation looks like this: I don’t have boyfriend. I have boyfriend but we are not married. We are married but we don’t have kids. We have only one child. Our kid is not obedient, we have problematic teenager.
In professional plan, we can use same pattern: I am studying and i don’t have job. I have job but my salary is small. I have good salary but i have no free time. I have job but my boss is dictator. It is about human nature, where all are rivals, competitors and opponents. Why your neighbor owe expensive car, and you are going at work with bus? Why your kids can’t have designers clothes? Why your friend has bigger flat then you? We are dreaming because of our ambitions. It is not bad, i am also ambiti…
