    The World Hates Different... Or Do They...

    Growing up everyone wants to be the cool kid and have lots of friends and do things that other kids think is cool etc. Obviously who wouldn't want to be what is considered normal and not have any major problems. The "different" kids everyone makes fun of and doesn't talk to them...

    Uniqueness

    I  saw a  lonely  flower  glorifing  and  standing  by  itself  in  a vast desert  I came near  it and sympathized  because of  its   being  lonely  and  detached  from  other flowers but  the  flower  replied  .  LOOK  i  would  have  no   value...

    Different Views Keep Things Balanced

     It's how we grow and develop, if people all had the same views on everything their would be no development of anything passed that one view. I love people who are different then me because they keep me on my toes and help me develop/challenge my views.

    I Love Him More Each Day

    Another update, I'm still in love with my teacher - ex teacher - who is 17 years older than myself. It's crazy but I do seriously love him and not seeing him after all these months has made me realize that. I haven't been able to emotionally click with any other guy my age etc...

    We Are All Different

    Since I Feel Different Myself...

    ...I would like to find people who resonate with me. But they're hard to find...:-( Also being "different" isn't always easy, I guess. Sometimes we want to be normal in order to not stand out so much. I, however, have just decided that I want to try to embrace my "uniqueness...

    Somewhere along the way,

    I discovered that I really enjoy people who are different. I don't look down on people who seem like everyone else, but it's just refreshing when people are willing to stick out. You can see more of their uniqueness and there is something beautiful and real about that.

    Where Did All The Weirdo's Go???

    I'm what you call 'different'. Purely because of the way I think and the things I do and say. I remember the times when I'd surpress those things just to fit in with the 'normals'. I ended up feeling even more alienated and strange, like maybe I'm just some kinda outcast. Truth...

    Strange Boy

    I remember when I was 16, I had art class with a boy who was so quiet that everyone would usually forget he was in the class. I never even knew his name... he wasn't great-looking or charismatic or anything- he just sat there quietly, doing his assignments. He had dark hair that...

    Be Real And I'll Say, "vive La Difference!"

    In my opinion, there are two types of different.  'Naturally different', and 'put on different'.The other day I saw a beautiful, young woman with blue hair.  She looked to be from Barbados, or a similar island, and carried herself with such grace, poise and elegance ...and...

    Increase Your Bubble

    I love to meet and talk with others who differ from me.  Any kind of difference.  It is so exciting to lean about them.  I learn so much and grow as a person. The biggest surprise is always learning the differences are small compared to how we are alike.

    I Love Unusual People

    I love being around people who are "weird."  Most people in our society look like and act like a bunch of clones. I like people who have minds of their own. Most people would think these people are weird, but I just think they're awesome.

    You don't get much of a variety. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying all the people around here are bland but they aren't exactly my definition of "different" either. I guess when I think of different I think of myself and so I try to find people who are like me even in the...
