    Difference

    I am different and proud. I fear not having change. So, why would I want to be like everyone else. I enjoy being unique. I love being different. People who try to be like everyone else are lost and don't know who they are themselves. As someone once said, "You were born an...

    Not So Really Different Deep Down

    We all are unique, each in their own way.  Some of us have been abused as children as I was.  Some of us have been beaten with strong things, like I was.  Some of us have grown up coddled by their parents, which I don't even understand.  Some of us had...

    Yes, I think my self-esteem is partly built on this, come to think of it, as I do enjoy being usually "none of the above".

    I love who I have become,

    in the past I would have never loved myself for who I am because I cared too much what the world thought of me, I was afraid they would reject me but I was stupid to not know that they already rejected me long time ago because I was different, everyone is different in their own...

    Hmmm...

    We are all different, therefore we should all be proud of that. No two people are the same, and there is no one else like me on the planet. Some people are more different than others, and a lot of people are similar. Even so, everyone has something that makes them different from...

    A Passing

    My mother died yesterday at 3:30am. I have tried my best, but all I can think about are the memory of things my dad did for me (he died 27 years ago) and I cannot think of a single good memory with my mother, just criticism. My mother was 94. I am almost 70. I have no...

    Why Do I Have to Be the Same?

    I look at all these "cookie cutter" chicks out there. Mid-height, blonde or dirty blonde, blue or green eyes, probably about 120 lbs, and they look like drones. Whether or not they're all white, it doesn't matter. They all just blend in to each other. They're all going...

    I have apparently always been different. The big, curlyhaired girl with the glasses. The one who wears tshirts with graphics that nobody else "gets." The one who'd rather be alone at home curled up with a good book than in a crowd of people. The angsty poet. The one...
