no thanks I'm not gonna let idiots ruin my day. Be yourself no matter what other people think. Trust me you'll make much more friends and have much more fun. If they think you're weird they're not worth it.
Truth isn't only about knowledge... it's also about learning to accept your limitations and focus on your strengths. Don't take what society tells you as sacred words set in stone. It may just take a while for the rest of your culture to catch up with you. And that's ok.
