We have a lot of talk in our society about celebrating diversity and being different, but sometimes the feeling of being different and standing out from the crowd can lead us to feelings that were disconnected.
We need to remember that the two realities are not mutually exclusive. We are NOT islands unto ourselves, nor are we exactly as anyone else.
We are certainly part of a larger group and we are all certainly unique.
We simply need to let both of those realities have space in our mental narrative.
You’re different by design. Not by accident.
