“The odd one out is a person or thing is different from or kept apart from others that form a group or set.” – Cambridge Dictionary
It is because I have autism that I am considered different and sigmatised and seen as ‘the odd one out.’ I have always struggled to fit in. My nemesis is autism, but anyone who is different from the norm may often be seen as ‘the odd one out.’
In my younger years it bothered me, today it doesn’t bother me at all, but I still think it important I write about these things. It helps us to continue to put our lives into context, so that we are able to see and do things differently.
When anyone is different, they’re mentally and emotionally different and that can cut them off. Not because they voluntarily choose to stand out, but because society continues to pigeon hole them into feeling and being different. On a spiritual and universal level we are no different, it’s society that needs to change.
Where everyone is scrambling to be the same, you are unique because you stand out. And when it comes to making decisions or success, it shouldn’t matter whether people understand, support or approve, our decisions aren’t theirs. If you were confident before, you shall be confident again.
Your life, and the way you live your life, shouldn’t matter. What matters is what you think. Society needs to approve. It needs to fast forward, accept we’re all different and just be okay.
