Let's Chat: Do You Think It's Wrong to Be Different?

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Have you ever felt like you didn’t fit into society’s standards of what normal is? As if, whatever makes you different means that there is something wrong with you but in reality, that’s not true. There's nothing wrong with being different because that’s what makes you unique. That’s what makes you stand out from the crowd of sheep. Trust me, life is far better when you are being a wolf.

What are society's standards of normal? It’s almost as if you have to follow the crowd. Be something you are not just to make others around you feel comfortable, but that’s not a great way to live your life. It’s exhausting and you know the saying, “If all your friends jumped off of a cliff, would you?” It’s not a good idea to live your life the way others want you to live it. It’s your life after all.

Be yourself. Yes, it may be difficult to feel as if you won’t be accepted by society’s standards, but it’s worth it. There may be people that don’t like you for you but that just means they are not correct for you. They don’t deserve your company if they can’t accept you for you.  All you need to do is embrace yourself for who you truly are because you are amazing. There’s nothing better than being who you truly are. Being YOU is your superpower.

Don’t let the world change that about you. Be the example that others can admire, not that they want to be YOU but so they can be empowered to be themselves to in the world.

Love always,
