You have to be comfortable with yourself, and not care what anyone else thinks or says. I won't wear my boots tucked at the office, yet. It is coming. So often people are afraid of what someone thinks about them or might say about them. I had one fellow yesterday at the grocery store in a rather loud voice say that I looked like I had just came off stage in Nashville. I said Thank You! I wish I wish I was. Then a lady had kind words to say about my boots and jacket. Some folks are going to have something to say, good, bad, or otherwise. Some are going to look and wish they could be an individual. I just don't care one way or the other. I am comfortable with myself, think skinned enough to let the negative roll off my back, and just happy to enjoy wearing what I wish. Looking at it a different way, 98.999% of the comments have been good.
A quote I live by. "You laugh at me because I'm different, I laugh at you because you are all the same."
