Does being different make us strong? There is no right or wrong answer. Each case is different. As a child, I knew I was different because there were physical things I struggled with, but not knowing and my ability not to dwell on my problems, made me emotionally strong.
The not knowing didn’t help me with my anger, but it did make me even more determined to find out what was wrong. So long as we’re not emotionally being pulled down and mocked for what we deal with, I believe we all have the ability to pull ourselves back up again.
It’s the continual emotional negative patterns that play out in our heads that continue to pull us down. If we can look at it another way, being different makes us unique, one of a kind. I think if we can, we must learn to embrace that concept.
