    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 Seriously Do.

    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. : )

    Why Would I Want To Be Anyone But Myselffei

    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.

    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...

    Everyone in this world, no matter their creed, race, religion, sex, nationality, etc, deserves to be treated with the utmost respect. Even the rapists, murderers, sociopaths, all deserve respect. I dont like it, but by God, we are all entitled to respect. None of use are any...

    Stop Copying Me!

    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...

    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...

    The Weird People Are the Interesting Ones.
