As human beings, we are both similar and different. Belonging is our basic need, so is being different, Unique, ourselves! When both of these needs are being fulfilled, we can start to make most of what we can be.
“No one ever made a Difference by being like everyone else.” ― P.T. Barnum
The latter need, of being unique is takes virtues such as courage. Rejection at point or another is inevitable.
What you experience, makes you stronger.
If you are willing to listen and learn from it, you’ll become wiser.
You will not be like everyone else, you’ll be different, and you will make a difference.
Observe and reflect, write your thoughts, feelings and experiences down. They will Lift you up one day.
A lot of what you can be is determined by who do you lift up. We are not in this life alone, we are looking to belong to something greater than ourselves.
See the potential for good in others and treat them better than they deserve. Eventually you will find that it’s those people that will help you to become what you can be at your best.
