Unique As Can Be
Quote of the day:
“As we grow as unique persons, we learn to respect the uniqueness of others.”
-Robert H. Schuller
You and I...we are certainly unique.
And it is true.. that as we grow, we most certainly learn to respect the uniqueness of others.
Respect...a word missing in most people's dictionary.
People who see others not like them as 'not cool', or even a fool. They forget to respect the uniqueness of others as they grow in their own little world.
So some people actually leave their uniqueness behind...change to someone else-just to be considered cool and not a fool. They forget to stay true to their uniqueness...that which makes them stand out in the first place..that which makes them different...distinctive...and exceptional.
You lose your uniqueness...you lose everything; and then what do you have left?
So what if you are not tall or look like a model from a magazine...so what if you talk funny,eat, laugh or walk funny...or even dress funny-that's just the way you are-your uniqueness.
So what if you don't like music...
Or the outdoors...
Or even pets?
Understand that people can make you feel bad-only when you allow them to.
And people can and will take a lot of things from you...
They will take your time...some will take your trust...others will try to take away your uniqueness.
But remember...never give up that which makes you who you are..your uniqueness!
