Why are you trying so hard?


Why are you trying so hard to fit in, when you were born to stand out?


Why are you trying so hard to fit in, when you were born to stand out?

Do you fear being thought of as “strange” if you “stand out”?

Are “different” from others?

Do you look at the world through different eyes?

Do you know your gifts? Are you grateful for them?

You are your greatest gift!

We all spend more time than necessary trying to fit in or blend. It’s the way our culture has programmed us. But consider this …. some people were meant to stand out. However, for many of us, the older we get, the more we don’t care how much we stand out in the crowd because we have finally come to reason with our self-esteem. 

Accept who you are even if you are different or stand alone. It doesn’t matter. You are your own person, an individual who has confidence to accept who you are in the face of others who may laugh at you. Let them laugh! Besides, what you think of me …. is none of my business! 

You are and have something special, whether you know it or not right now.

Love yourself! Be thankful for your gifts. You are the greatest gift of all!

Live your own life. Stand in your own confidence. Start living your life as if no one is watching.

It’s a beautiful world and it’s all right out there in front of you. Go for it!!




…and once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive, you won’t even be sure whether the storm is really over, but one thing is certain… when you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in … that is what this storm is all about.

  1. Agreed … then again, I wouldn’t think less if people, esp. young people, do it. I’ve learnt my lesson on the subject to not to quite early. 🙂 😉
