Being me

You would think that the easiest thing in the world would be, to be yourself. Society tells you to do you… but not like that. They want you to fit in, to copy everyone else.

I have never been “normal”. I was too poor, too fat, too shy, too Christian, and too introverted. I was a virgin until I was 23, and that was by choice. I chose not to do drugs, I chose not to sleep around.

It took me 30+ years to feel comfortable in my own skin. I know that I am not conventionally attractive, but I also know that that fact does not negate the fact that people find me attractive. I know that people are drawn to my personality. I know that honesty is a rare thing, and that some people really appreciate it.

I am me. I don’t fit anyone’s idea of normal, and that is just fine with me. It’s the outsiders, and freaks who end up changing the world. We do things differently. We think differently.

I tried for most of my life to blend in, and be invisible. But I have learned that I stand out just by being me. I am the rainbow sheep of the family. I like being different. I like being unique. I like not following the crowd.

I feel deeply. I have an amazing capacity for loving. I am very well loved. Society tells us that we can only love one person at a time. I know that isn’t true, at least not for me.

I am 48 years old, and I honestly have no idea what my purpose in life is. So I just do me. Sometimes it helps people. Sometimes I help people learn to accept themselves. Sometimes I help them see a different point of view. Once again, I have no idea where I’m going with a post. But in a world constantly trying to make me a faceless person in a crowd, I go again the flow, and I do what I want to do. I don’t care what people think of me. So, break free from the chains that society tries to drag us down with. Do you.
