Square Peg In A Round Hole
“We’re not meant to fit in. We’re meant to stand out.” Sarah Ban Breathnach
I am a non-conformist. I have always been this way. It is not being difficult or attention seeking or any of those things that a child can be labeled as. I was actually shy. I realized very quickly that if my brothers knew my weakness I would be in trouble. I forced myself out of that way of thinking almost to a fault. I wanted no part of vulnerability, so I was aggressive. Ok. I’m still a little aggressive. I have learned to roll it back a little, but this personality was created as a direct result of not wanting to be taken advantage of. My entire life I have strived to be the best. I am always the best. I am the best me that I can be all of the time. I stand out. I do because I am the only me that the world is going to get. I don’t care if it is liked or loved or hated or despised. Do you. I will always do me. What makes me different is not something that I had to make up or invent. What makes me different is in fact how I was made. The things I did as a child to become the adult I am today make me stand out. I think outside of the box all of the time. There is no spoon.
