I used to be afraid of my weird. But at the same time, for me, my weird was out there for everyone to see. I wasn’t like everyone else. And when I was really small, that didn’t matter to me. I didn’t care what everyone else told me I was supposed to be, I was just me. But in middle school, the peer pressure gets to be too much. I tried a little bit to fit in, but that wasn’t enough. And as an adult, I tried to give in completely and fit in. Not only did I continue to stand out, but I was making myself miserable.
So wave your weird around! It repels the boring people who you don’t want anyway!
