Stay Weird

For all the ladies people out there that feel like they never fit in, this one's for you...

It's not a good feeling to always feel left out. Not ever belonging. Always being the "nice" one but never being the one. Having lots of friends but never having a friend till the end. Or being that friend but never getting it in return. Feeling like you're on the outside looking in. Being in a group of friends but feeling one step removed. Like you're lacking somehow. Like there is just one piece missing. You're missing. You're missing out.

It really sucks.

If this sounds like I'm talking about you then I regret to inform you that I have no words of wisdom for you. No advice to offer.

What I can tell you is that I've felt this way my whole life. Not just sometimes. Always.

And it really sucks.

What else I can tell you is that I'm gonna keep being me and I hope you will keep being you.

I don't have to be like everyone else. I don't have to conform. I will keep marching to the beat of my own silly drum. It makes me no more or no less than anyone else. It just makes me,!

P.S. I wrote this several months ago but never posted. This morning I came across this quote which fits perfectly.
Why are you trying so hard to fit in when you were born to stand out? 
~from the movie, What A Girl Wants

From one weirdo to another, keep on shining that wonderful weird light ! It is needed so desperately in this inside the box world.
Light and love !

Oh yeah - I am definitely familiar with the "I don't fit in" feeling. From the outside people would probably be surprised to hear me say that - but I am (or more used to be) a great chameleon. In the last couple years I have worked hard to BE ME - and embrace all that is weird and wonderful. I also believe that the "weird" ones are the most interesting people to know!!
