This is the power and beauty of art and creativity.
When everyone and everywhere in society require you to conform, art, by nature, celebrates diversity and encourages one to be different and to have one's own identity.
There is no right or wrong in art, everyone is free to create what they wish and what they aspire to.

When we force ourselves to do something to fit it, to impress someone important, to look less 'weird' for too long, we begin to lose touch with our true selves, and that's often when problems arise.
