Day 44 – On being different

Sometimes being different can make you uncomfortable. I know it makes me feel that way sometimes. However, everyone isn’t the same and I think that makes life quite interesting.

If you’re not into football and your peers are into it, it’s nothing to be ashamed of.
If you’re not into a particular hobby and others are, you’re fine, there’s nothing wrong with you.
If everyone is doing something wrong and you decide to do the right thing, it’s nothing to be ashamed of.

Sometimes people don’t know it but they put pressure on people that are different and make them feel like they’re not fine or normal.

However different you are, embrace it and with time, people will be okay with it.

If you’re standing for right whilst everyone is doing the wrong thing, don’t be discouraged. You’re not alone.

You’re fine and you’re loved❤️


The being different I’m referring to, doesn’t mean evil or bad attitude and behavior (there’s nothing amazing about bad attitudes). I’m simply referring to you being different from the normal things others do and are interested in that is not necessarily bad. I am also referring to good different; like doing something good and commendable in the midst of others who aren’t.

I’ve put this out before but this is a reminder because something similar happened today.
