Have you ever been to a place where you felt like the odd one out, just because everyone was thinking or acting in the same way? Often times, the word “weird” is used in such situations. It is either they refer to us as weird because we are not like them or we refer to ourselves as such because, we see ourselves as round pegs trying to fit in to a square hole.
At this point, many of us force ourselves to fit in; we don’t want to be the “weird” ones. We want them to see us as part of them and not the way we really are.
Weird refers to something that is unusual; but it’s not the word I would use. Unique is more appropriate; “one of its kind”.
Many of us are so busy trying to fit in to the status quo that we never see ourselves for who we truly are. We never come to the realization of the fact that we were not created to be like everyone else. We were created with unique attributes and characteristics which makes us distinct everywhere we go.
Note that our distinct nature is no coincidence. No two persons are the same, and this is intentional. We all have within us, solutions to problems, answers to questions; all of these have been deposited in our unique personalities.
Why would you want to be like everyone else, when you were created perfectly to meet a certain need?
Why would you want to be like everyone else, when you are uniquely made up of rare treasures that everyone else is searching for?
Why would you want to be like everyone else, when in the actual sense, they actually really want to be like you.
Why would anyone want to be like anyone, when our differences are what adds colour to our world, making it a perfect beauty.
You were created perfect and complete, to be the difference, to make a difference in this world; and your ability to make any impact whatsoever is only found in your unique personality.
Quit trying to be like everyone else; believe it or not, no one else is like you.
Quit trying to fit in; you will only be denying yourself of your best and denying the world the same.
Quit trying to think like everyone else; you will be denying them the solution to their problem, and they will blame you for it.
Your best is not weird, it is what makes the difference.
Your actions don’t make you different;
You are different.
You don’t make a difference because you do things differently;
You make the difference because You Are The Difference.
You Are Never Alone.
