The undesired reality for society is that if you have a large group of individuals with different ideas, beliefs, objectives and personal desires, they are commonly victimised or targeted. Throughout history people have lived in fear of being different, and have often retreated on their ideas because they do not feel accepted and encouraged by others around them.
The misguided truth is that when people see difference, they suddenly accept it. This is very rare, and somehow people think it's reality - when we all know, it's not.
Since the late 20th century, acceptance of different ideas has definitely been promoted among society, but there is still a long way to go.
Somehow, after extensive political chaos, people who choose to be different and present conflicting ideas are seen to be outspoken, inaccurate and misguided individuals. When it comes to entrepreneurship - especially with young people - if you want to challenge the normality and decide to start a business, you are somehow impeding on someone else's beliefs. Indeed, you are differentiating yourself, but really, what is wrong with that?
Time and time again, young people feel unaccepted by society, much the same as older people who can't find work. This type of self-manipulative ideology that is presented through the views of others must be dismissed.
As an individual, your direction and approach to anything can be decided on your own principles, morale and behaviour. No one else has that full control, and others' envy and jealousy often comes into the equation because of it.
How do we overcome this as a society?
Well as we have seen with discrimination, there is an assortment of legislation involved with the prevention of discriminating someone, We need to turn the tables on nonacceptance much the same as discrimination: individuals who choose difference need to feel empowered, not targeted and victimised.
Accept and empower.
