They say you are different, maybe even call you strange. You feel like you don’t fit in, you try so hard to be one of them, like everyone else, to be as society would have it, what they call  “normal”  but you don’t fit their category of “normal” and you never will.  You are different because you are built different it is the way you are, it is the way you think;  the way you experience life and the world through your eyes, you see things in a way that no one else does. It is a thing of beauty not one of shame, it is to be expressed, explored and to be nurtured. The gift of being different is a treasure chest fill with things grand, and spectacular, right there waiting, it is a wonder that will amaze all who have the experience of you. It will amaze even you.  It has ability the possibility to surpass anything in the range of “normal” to set what can become the new standard, the possibility of greatness but this can only be if given the chance.  The chance to breathe.

To be different is to be extraordinary and if you are, you could very well be on the cusp of greatness. If you fail to know and understand yourself, if your uniqueness is left unexplored you will never reach your full potential, what could have been will be forever unknown.  Your uniqueness is your advantage, there is this quality which only you or just a few possess, what you and others thought was a curse is really a blessing, probably your greatest asset but you will never know this, not unless you know and you are sure of who you are, unless you accept and love yourself. Only then will they see you, and come to know the gem of you that is a true rarity of humanity.

To be “normal” is to be the average, the garden variety of society.  You truly fit in, amongst the crowd, swallowed in the mass of humanity, you are never seen, and will never be notice.  Normal has its appeal, you toe the line,  keep your head down, never step out of line.  Being “normal” you never express who you are, you forget your dreams, you live to please others and not yourself. You want to be average? you will get the average jobs the average money, the average life.

Dare to be different!!
