There are 2 types of people you'll meet in life and that's those that accept you for you and those that do not. Society will never be easy to deal with but as long as you are happy the way you are that's what matters. Ignore those that try to put you down and keep your mind open.

Society is a horrible place that you should NEVER, EVER try to be apart of, or try to be accepted by. Be an outcast and proud :) Society isn't in any way cool or better than being an 'outcast'. Be different and be damn proud of it.

People are judgemental that's basically it. This is a big problem for all us because it makes us more insecure. We shouldn't be afraid to be who we are. None of us deserved to be judged.

society is made up of millions of people and double amount of views, rules and regulations. Sometimes people forget to give importance to other people as compared to their societal standards that everyone has to follow. But we all are different each person in this "society" is not the same so we all can not behave the same way. The terms and conditions that we have to agree to before we are accepted into the society can sometimes be very difficult or impossible for us to follow and there is nothing wrong with it. God made us all different and unique and we have a right to be different.

Any change or unconventional thing is not accepted in the society because they have a pattern and system for similar kind of crowd. For example cloth industry promotes only one kind of body type so that it doesn't have to make other kind of clothes as it takes additional efforts. So when you're a bit different it's hard for society to accept you and so it makes it hard to be accepted. But it's those unconventional people who have developed humanity. If someone wouldn't have thought of living out of the woods we would still be there. So don't worry about society, it makes it hard for everyone. What matters is you accept yourself and don't care what others have to say

Society has followed media reports too much for too long. They give a false impression on what or how a person should wear, act, feel and help.

Society is stuck in traditions. It has a set of norms already established. It frowns upon you if you differ from this standard. Society does not like different.

Society makes it hard for some people to be accepted because it is still stuck in the traditional belief system. This happens when people do want to accept and change with the changing environments. It really hurts a lot when someone is looked at as an outcast.

You have to remember society is always changing. You got to be better than what the opinions of others say. What you think of yourself means the world. If you don't like something change it and if you can't change it then accept it.

Society thinks you should be one way and one way only. It thinks if you don't follow this your weird, which isn't true. Everyone is special, different ,beautiful, and amazing no matter what others say. Embrace your likes don't follow society's expectations, because if we always followed society's expectations. We would never have excelled as far as we did. The greatest people were always strange before they did something amazing. Remember this

Society makes it hard to be accepted because society will constantly change. Society is made up of people and their opinions, which are never the same.

The one thing I can think of is that we all have to accept our differences as soon as we realize that we are all different. Every thing will look brighter

Society makes it hard to be accepted because society thinks and focuses so much on what can go wrong or this is against something society believes in. Society criticises every person, thing, animal, idea or etc.

Because some people in society think that they are all "it" and they try to please people too much. Always be yourself. Stay strong. Be yourself

Because for centuries now they have been used to specific stereotypes so more than half the popularity of middle aged and elderly people stand by these..and there are also many teenagers that have been taught by their families/circles about these stereotypes and now are hard to understand what side to follow

Because it is in our human nature to deny anyone who is not like us, it's a primal survival skill of ours.

It's because society tries to define a collective while each person is different.We must accept what it's first accepted by those who rule this world.

Society is a cruel dictator, that nobody is safe from. People like to cloud their worlds with scenarios that if it isn't normal, then it must be something abnormal. Once something turns into a stigma it is often hard to overcome that stigma. Society also fears that if they accept something is happening reality will be all too real, so if they can hide the pain and suffering of others, then it will live in a world where everything must be, normal.

Because society nowadays as evolved a lot (frequently in a bad way), following the technological avances. Now people are more and more exigent towards others and less towards themselves and, with that, intolerance, disrespect and discrimination arose, making it harder for anybody to be socially accepted.

Keep your mind open to new ideas! Maybe your not open enough. If your not people will start to think your weird. Be yourself and keep a smile on your face!

In this generation, no one wants to focus on themselves. Majority of the time when one pass judgement, they're secretly judging themselves.

It is hard to be accepted into society for who you are because many people are busy and they don't realize you as well other people are going through their own issues so when you decide to tag in it's becomes a little harder to blend in.

You know, society now can be super judgmental when people are not seen as the mainstream or ideal of what is desirable now. But hey, there's always going to be something within you that is/will be 'trendy' since these ideals chop and change all the time. But it's important for you to not buy into the ideals and try to change yourself. You are who you are so own it no matter how little or much you love yourself. People used to ask 'does my butt look big in this' in a bad way, but now people ask that in an excited and hopeful way. Both mentally and physically, own who YOU are. Your people will show up at the right time who will be accepting and have the same life values as you.
