Re: Do Any Of You Guys Have This Issue With Naruto?
If you are truly going to base your life around a problem that soley rests within what you truly love at the extent of losing your so called 'friends', then I truly suggest that you find a new group of friends personally. People are entitled to love what they love, as this is your life. If you are afraid to admit that you love something, simply because of a few no-bodies who think they are 'cool' who say 'Oh, that's a loser thing' then I advise you to truly stop and think about that group of people who you call friends. Is being 'popular' and 'cool' really worth more than being able to talk about the things you love with the some of the closest people you can have in this life besides family? I don't really think so.
I say you need to leave behind what people say, as critiscizim and opininated-based thoughts are going to be around you your entire life. People are entitled to their own thoughts and views on things, so what makes your friend's opinion's any better than yours on the matter? Nothing. You should be able to be free to state what you like and don't like, not caring what other's think in the end . Growing up, I was well respected among my peers because of not being afraid to say what I love. Of course I also had other people disagree with me about my thoughts and things I deemed 'great' and 'cool', but it wasn't the end of the world ehen they did disagree. If you truly don't want to 'loose' any friends then by all means, keep what you love a secret, though eventually, you'll find that group of people who do love what you love and it will be your desicion in the end to hang out with them or not.
Girls? If a girl loves you she is going to love you for YOU and the things you love. When you find that special someone in life, they are going to except ALL of you and not a PART of you. If this girl calls you 'weird' for liking Naruto, then that is her personal opinion and it doesen't make her right in any way, shape or form. You just simply move on to whoever else will like you for who you are on the inside and not based on popularity of the true you you hide.
This is your life, and you can live it the way you want. However, just make sure the end result is with what 'you' want, and not what 'somebody else' wants.
