Always remember that you don’t have to accept an environment that glorifies ignorance. Ask questions, in any situation, regardless of who’s present. Disregard your preconceived notions of what’s socially acceptable, despite what your anxiety will tell you. The discomfort of confrontation will not outweigh the anguish of perpetual submission to that which you disagree with.
Don’t bend; don’t water it down; don’t try to make it logical; don’t edit your own soul according to the fashion. Rather, follow your most intense obsessions mercilessly.
— Franz Kafka (via moon-medicine)
