Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. Look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true. Think only of the best, work only for the best, and expect only the best. FORGET THE MISTAKES OF THE PAST and press on to the greater achievements of the future. Give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others. Live in the faith that the whole world is on your side so long as you are true to the best that is in you!

We live in a world where everyone wants to look the same, and fit in. No one wants to be "unique".. or if they do, they want to be unique.. but only with their group of friends. No one wants to embrace the differences that makes everyone their own being. It is so interesting to hear people say that it's good to be unique and how you should embrace your different qualities, and yet no one seems to want to be the "only one". They want to be the "only one" with their friends... And I can't judge anyone, I have no right to. And I am still like this in a lot of ways. I never wanted to just be me. I wanted to be like them. I wanted to look like her. I wanted do this and that.. but I kept loosing sight of who I really was. And what I am capable of doing.
We all have so many amazing qualities about us that we need to let others see. We are given certain talents or abilities for reasons. Some of those reasons we will never know. But they are still there regardless. We need to stop being afraid of being the "different" one and just be comfortable with ourselves. We need to show others that you don't have to look like her or him to be happy. You just have to be YOU. Forget about those who think you are weird, or unusual.. they don't matter. Those who matter don't mind, and those who mind don't matter.
Be the person who makes someone else's life easier. Don't be afraid to be friends with someone just because they may not look like you. They might be someone who can help you out in your life. But you will never know until you lose the idea of what people should look like, how they should act, or what they should do. EVERYONE has something to offer the world. What are YOU offering?
