“If you won’t have a drink then you’re a prude; but they’ll call you a drunk as soon as you down the first one.”
Damned if you don’t, damned if you do; so what is left for us to do? Just do your own thing, as long as you stay true to what you believe in and the values you keep, then, go ahead. People will judge you for whatever you do; but the most important thing and what will matter most is how you look at and value yourself. At the end of the day it’s you who will reap from whatever it is that you do and not other people. I’m not saying totally close your ears to what others will say; but my point is that filter what you actually digest because you can never filter what you will hear; but at least know the ones that are worth keeping and taking note of.

“Make lots of noise, kiss lots of boys or kiss lots of girls if that’s something you’re into. When the straight and narrow gets a little too straight roll up a joint or don’t...”
Try to reason out; but if their minds are closed to new ideas, we can’t really do anything about it. No matter how hard we try to show them our side of the world and no matter how much we want them to understand, it’s not really up to us now. If they can’t open up their mind, they don’t deserve the beauty that we see, that we experience, that we understand; either that, or just, to each his own.

“Just ‘cause you can’t beat ‘em; don’t mean you should join ‘em.”
Stand up for what you believe in. Stand your ground. Just because some people condemn you for things they do not understand and fail to appreciate doesn’t mean they will always be right. Go back to the roots of what you believe in, of what you stand for; what are you fighting for? Don’t give in to the call of the crowd especially when you know that your personal values are at stake. Show them you’re strong and you’re firm and you will never back down. Stray strong and stay true to yourself and to who you really are.
