Feeling Different?

Ever thought you don't fit in with society? Ever felt a bit weird or odd? Ever worried you were just plain wrong? Ever felt unhappy with something about yourself that seems different to everyone else? We have! But the great thing about these differences is we can learn to accept them, appreciate them and even LOVE them.

There really is nobody on this planet quite like you, and that is a wonderful thing.

You're unique. Imagine if we all looked the same, thought the same, acted the same and felt the same? It would be pretty boring, right? Don't fear being different to everyone else! Your quirks, your stories, your blemishes and your failings are as valuable as your successes because they make you a unique human being.

Here are some quotes that help me when I'm feeling unhappy with my uniqueness:

"Overcome the notion that you must be regular. It robs you of the chance to be extraordinary." - Uta Hage

“Each of us is a unique strand in the intricate web of life and here to make a contribution.” - Deepak Chopra

"It is better to fail in originality, than to succeed in imitation." - Herman Melville

"If you walk in the foot prints of others, you won't make any of your own." - Unknown

"Today you are you. That's truer than true. There's no one alive who is youer than you." - Dr. Seuss

We are all just muddling along this journey called Life. Cut yourself a break! And remember, in the wise words of Oscar Wilde, "Be yourself; everyone else is already taken".
