Why Not Fitting in is Part of Being an Artist

I find it hard to fit in. I was always bullied as a kid for being different. It can be hard to see everyone else grow up to be safe in the group of people that are easily accepted as cool or easy to talk to get more close together. It does not make life easier to have many high-level abstract ideas. It can be hard to half to translate what keeps your mind engaged into a whole other langue for most people to underhand. It is not easy being on the outside of sociality. The idea that people how to want to build a world where we can be underused help all people understand each other is not one I wrapped my head around unlit I became an adult. Building Community Is the lesson that made me an artist.
