Staring in the mirror, wondering when or how I would fit in with the “norms” of modern society. Wondering why I am not as popular as everyone else or why no one would ever associate with me. I am sure each and every one of us has been there. Figuring out why being different was seen as a bad thing. Through many stages in life, I have come to the realization of being different is totally cool and unique. It is okay to be who you are and it is okay to take some time to find who you are. Just a reminder to anyone seeing this story – be yourself! You can’t be anyone else and don’t let someone convince you otherwise.
