Let No One Convince You of Your Uncoolness

“I don’t know if I’m cool or not, but I am incredibly resistant to any effort to make me think I’m uncool.” -Terence Mckenna, Cool Can’t Be Commodified

If you’re not a fun person to be around, you’re either hanging out with the wrong people or you’re pretending to be something you’re not.

Everyone has something to offer, everyone has the power to bring a smile to people’s faces when they enter a room, and everyone deserves to experience the joy of knowing how much their presence means to another human being.

If you’re not experiencing that joy, find a different crowd and start being truthful to what really matters to you.

Life is too ripe with possibility for any of us to waste our time desperately seeking the arbitrary validation of exclusivists and elitists who perceive us as boring and unworthy.

Instead of trying to be cool with the cool kids, be cool with the kids who are cool with you.

  1. Cool! Another good one.

    I didn’t think I was a “fun person to be around”
    until someone told me—many years ago===
    that I was. Surprise to me, but it gave me more
    insight about myself and helped me to blossom.
    Since then I’ve made sure to let others know that
    they’re “fun to be around. ” Those that get it, get
    it. Those that don’t, don’t.

    “Be cool with those who are cool with you.”

    1. We all deserve to have a moment like that. I meet so many who are under false impression that they are “losers” simply because they have yet to find their tribe. My wish is that everyone will find the strength to keep at it until they connect with those who appreciate their true value.
