"Vexation of the spirit is a waste of time,
Negative thinking, don't waste your thoughts,
Verbal conflict is a waste of words,
Physical conflict is a waste of flesh,
People will always be who they want to be,
And that's what really makes the world go around."
...I'd like to add that if you're lucky enough to have a good friend and a family that cares, it doesn't have to suck quite as much. Otherwise my advice is; stand firm for what you believe in, until and unless experience proves you wrong. Remember, when the emperor looks naked, the emperor is naked. The truth and a lie are not sort of the same thing. And there is no aspect, no facet, no moment of life that can't be improved with pizza.
