Uniqueness and change

Something inspirational:

“A tulip doesn’t strive to impress anyone. It doesn’t struggle to be different than a rose. It doesn’t have to. It is different. And there’s room in the garden for every flower. You didn’t have to struggle to make your face different than anyone else’s on earth. It just is. You are unique because you were created that way. Look at little children in kindergarten. They’re all different without trying to be. As long as they’re unselfconsciously being themselves, they can’t help but shine. It’s only later, when children are taught to compete, to strive to be better than others, that their natural light becomes distorted.”

  1. Mom always told me I was different from everybody else because that was how it was supposed to be.

    Everyone is different. We shouldn’t ridicule someone else because they are different. If we were all the same the world would be a boring place!

    1. You’re absolutely right Lisa we’re all different and should embrace being different.

      It’s when we change to be like everyone else, even though physically we may be different; that’s when we begin to copy everyone else and what was once unique… isn’t unique any more.
