Convictions are something I have always held dear, for in a way they are what make us who we are. But more often than not, the convictions I have are so contrary to the norm. I am perfectly capable of saying no to things I feel uncomfortable with, but afterwards, I always feel as if something is wrong with me-- "If no one else has a problem with this, then why should I?" I have so much trouble reconciling the truths I hold in my heart with the truths others believe in. Does anyone else identify?
