    I'm Different And I Love It!

    I am different. I have always known this. During my teens I used to wonder how and why I was so different from other young people my age. Why I never go out, why I've never had a boyfriend, why I don't seem to have any kind of social life at all...why I don't seem to have people...

    Otherwise...

    ...life would be so boring! i'm true to myself. i have a mind of my own. i'm one of a kind. and i like that. i look around me and everyone's copying each other. *yawn* following the crowd is boring. stand up and be true to yourself. it's the only way to be.

    Why Would I Want To Be Anyone But Myself??

     Even when i find myself comparing 'me' to other people,i know i'm yet to meet one person whose life i'd rather have or who i'd would want to trade places with forever (nothing added or removed). I always see something i can't imagine living with or without. I guess my life...

    I am who I am...

    I like me as I am, and prefer not to be someone else.  I don't like fitting into a mold, but I don't go out of my way to be different in every way.  I just go with who I am, and if it's the same as others, then so be it, but in many ways this means going against the...

    than be frontin' and miserable.  What is the point of trying to be to like everyone when individuality is the key to really being personally happy.  Heaven forbid the day that I end up like the rest of the sheeple. : )

    Not Like Most Other Guys

    Most guys, and some women, don't understand the fact that I don't like sports much. I don't care for football, baseball, golf or basketball. Golf is just some guy chasing his ball around and trying to stick it in a hole! A green hole no less! If you've ever watched football...

    Be Different ...

    I dont follow any fashion trends .. I dress what I like and do what I want as long as it doesn't trouble others .. Im not a trouble maker but peace maker .. but if Im disrespected .. I will immediately turn to a trouble maker and so talented as well.

    Being Different Is Good ... Now.

    Our differences are to be celebrated. They make us unique. Being different is never easy. At one time I was afraid of being different. It meant that people might turn away from me (rejection) or call me all kinds of names or even hurt me (danger). Now, with self acceptance I...

    I've always wanted to be the one who was different, when I was growing up. When everyone was doing one thing, I was always the odd kid doing something else. This use to make my mother angry too, as she would pick out our outfits for the day. Her and my sister would be wearing...

    The Weird People Are the Interesting Ones.

    I took me a long time to realise that being your own person is a good thing. I was always bullied at school for being the 'new' kid and being different in all senses. When people found things out about me they just added it into the list of insults and made me less proud of who I...
