The older you get the more comfortable you should get in your own skin.
It is difficult growing up, wanting to fit in or be popular.
You spend a good amount of time worrying about what people think or say about you.
Hopefully when you get into your 50's or 60's you drop all of that, or if you are very secure maybe way before that.
After all people will respect you for just being you.
Right now politics is being schooled by a no politician- Donald Trump- like him or hate him he is being himself. He says things that are not politically correct and he does not care.
This is NOT a endorsement for him or even for all of his tactics or stances.
But he is gaining traction mostly because he is himself- like it or not.
When you do finally come to the conclusion that it does not matter what other people think as long as you do your best and try not to purposely hurt anybody you feel freed.
Free to do good things and your shoulders will be lightened.
