No, I’m not referring to being deaf.
I have always been a bit different from everyone else.
I grew up thinking it was a bad thing to be different, to think differently, and to have a different perspective. Now, I have accepted that I’m different and am loving that I’m different even though people may not always understand where I come from.
Call it weird. Call it shy. Call it awkward. Call it abnormal. Call it what you want but I am who I am.
Yes, it is lonely at times because I wish I could share my world with everyone else. I love getting sneak peeks of other people’s worlds but I have yet to figure out how to share my world without constantly being judged for thinking differently and questioning things.
Why does society put so much emphasis on “sameness?”
