Fitting The Mould...



I am not a stereotypical person. I don't fit a category, a group, a mould....I just don't seem to slot into a specific space. I am more than happy with this, as I wouldn't want to be pigeon holed into a group and judged on that for the rest of my life.

The problem is, I don't quite know what I am. I guess I am still trying to find myself. When I was younger, I floated from group to group, and didn't really settle on a specific. I had a lot of friends from different groups...but they wouldn't socialise with each other which I never really understood. I tend to take people on who they are, rather than a category someone else has place upon them, so I couldn't get the concept of my friends not interacting.

As I have gotten older, I know that groups and labels don't really matter so much, as long as you are happy with yourself. And finding yourself can be fun...working out things about yourself you didn't realise. Like a level of strength you didn't know you had, or something new you try that you didn't think you would like. I think some people spend their whole lives trying to find themselves, and never really finding who they are because they are trying to fit into a group made by society.

The beauty of the human race is that nobody is the same. Even identical twins have different personality traits, different interests, and the similarity is only on the surface. If everyone was the same, or fit into stereotypical little descriptions, life would be boring. The variety wouldn't be there, and there wouldn't be half as many interesting people as there are. I am still on the path of finding who I am, but I am happy to say that I cannot be labelled as a certain type of person.

Afterall, variety is the spice of life right? So it is good to mix it up a little and surprise people. Who knows? You might surprise even yourself :)
