on not being the same

i am the sum of a billion different influences, experiences, stories. they are all meaningful and important to me and me alone.  the fibre of my being.  my core.  it is sometimes hard to accept that they may not be of value to others.

in a world that supposedly values individuality more than ever, the truly individual are often excluded for being different.  for standing up for themselves and what they believe.  most people don’t actually want to be challenged, especially by someone close to them.  they can’t understand it, as being ‘like’ others helps create a sense of belonging.  to them it is like losing control, instead of embracing the uniqueness and adventure.

because actually, there’s a little bit of freak in all of us.

stay true to who you are (oh yes, that old chestnut).  wear it loudly and proudly.
