Music, movies, books, tv, fashion, art, animals, people, even Facebook statuses — whatever it may be — you don’t need anyone’s approval to genuinely like what you like.

Music, movies, books, tv, fashion, art, animals, people, even Facebook statuses — whatever it may be — you don’t need anyone’s approval to genuinely like what you like.

As long as it’s not causing harm to yourself or others in some way, don’t let anyone make you feel like there is anything wrong with your personal preferences. Just because someone else may not like what you like, doesn’t make it any less worthy of your affection.

In fact, history shows us that just because something is popular doesn’t mean that it’s any better than something that may be lesser known.

Some people (or products) just get lucky. Others have millions of marketing dollars backing them to reach the tipping point that creates a sense of desire in the masses.

Some of the best and most amazing things in the world won’t be recognized by “the crowd” until years after they were created. And some things may never be recognized by the crowd.

When someone judges you for what you like, realize that it says more about them than it says about you. Being yourself means being unapologetically affectionate about the things you like, regardless of what others may think.

So go ahead and like what you like. And stand by it proudly. It means you’re being true to yourself and not falling victim to crowd mentality.
