All my life i've been different. I have always had weird clothes, taste in music, hair styles as a posed to my peers. I was always bullied and still as an adult I get bullied a lot. Personally speaking… When you are different and you choose to express it you will be mocked and shamed constantly. My children are different and I reinforce to them everyday that no one owes them anything and that they need to ignore it.
I know it all sounds so against what society says but having been a person who's reacted to it for almost 30 years my peace finally came when I went look people are judging me and I don't care because that's the price I pay to be myself. You will never change other people's opinions and it will happen for the rest of your life if you are different. You need to help your son find ways to ignore it, block it out and nurture the fact that he is in control about who he is and no mater what others say it doesn't matter.
