A square peg stands outside a gate with a round hole in it. Inside are round pegs waving to him. The sign says, "Welcome to Heaven. Enter Here!" He says, "Oh, crap!"
The pressure to conform is HUGE!
To me, my freedom was the most important thing.
That is what I'm all about... and nakedpastor: I believe in the personal freedom of the individual to be spiritually independent, and I critique all ideas, systems, and people who make it too difficult or even try to prevent it and make you suffer if you try and ridicule or reject you if you succeed.
Read that again. For yourself!
Just be you! Your own shape! Square. Rectangular. Triangular. Round. Whatever. I don't care, and nobody else should either!
Don't shape yourself to fit.
Let your freedom shape you.
Require others to accept you on your terms.
Live your freedom.
