BEING DIFFERENT IS OKAY
A fact is that people are unique, and it is okay. Would you really want to be like the person in the next cubicle, or sitting across from you on the bus? I think not, because there would be no intrigue or mystique to you. A fact is that we are afraid of what’s different, because that means we have to take the time to invest in knowing someone who is different or unique. A fact is that bullying is being of afraid of what’s unique or different. It is easy to go along with the status quo because it means everything is the same, no effort required.
My middle grandson likes purple socks, and lots of colors. I called him strange and he told me “I like what I like, and I don’t care what people think.” Wow, he told me. He is so right, because being unique is special, and it is just who you are. It’s not that you said “ I want to be unique.” Nope, doesn’t work like that, we are just who we are, and each of us has a certain uniqueness. It is not up to the person that recognizes he/her uniqueness to change, it’s the people that are to lazy to get to know that uniqueness who has to change. That change doesn’t just mean getting to know the unique person, but also embracing their own uniqueness. We at Unique Things embrace our gifts as being different, and we would like you to gift one of our gifts, to say to someone “ I know you are unique and I want to take the time to get to know your uniqueness.” Our gifts will not be seen everywhere, or understood for its uniqueness, but by giving a Unique Things gift you are saying so much to that unique person. Go to uniquesthingsonline.com to see our unique things. Thank you.
