I recently listened to a speaker about what being different meant few years back, unfortunately even now. It meant being laughed at or sometimes worse. In that speech they emphasize how wrong it is. And how correct to be different. Ok to embrace yourself for you.
I found it very empowering. It was like someone gave me a validation for creating my own kind of designs. I don't need to do what others are doing. Take inspiration from them? YES! Then go on and be ME.
