They sure are Different

How might you identify a family member or friend as being different? The list of ways in which they are different is endless.

I will see how quickly I can type a short list of those ways. Here goes:

Different age, nationality, hair style, education, profession, religion, height, weight, marital status, beliefs, love of animals, political affiliations, aspirations, emotions, personality, life experiences, music preferences, health habits, community involvement, love of travel, financial worth, skin color, dietary habits, physical attractiveness, circle of friends, hobbies and communication skills. This is just a partial list.

Odds are that those who you can identify as being different are the same ones who could, would and likely already have identified you as being different. Isn’t that grand?

How dull would life be if those around us were NOT different?

Personal Note: I have never tried to be anyone but myself. I know I am different and I take pride in being free to be me. Not perfect and, always and forever, a work in progress.
