Why am I different from other people

Updated on May 8, 2013

Different worlds

Coming from a family of 5 children I look around at my siblings and see that we all look different from each other. Facially we look similar but very different at the same time. It is very hard to explain but one would find a hard time guessing that we are siblings and its only when we explain that people will be like yaaa you kinda look alike. The thing that puzzles me the most and that led me to write this hub is the differences in character between my siblings and I.

Although we grew up in the same house and we all had the same parents it is quite startling how our characters and mannerisms are markedly different. Some are very particular about how they look some don't care at all, some are very hardworking and some are very lazy, some are particularly smart with their environment and some can't seem to tell the difference between a broom and a mop. So that makes me come back to the most important question why are we all different. We were raised in the same environment with the same parents so how did we turn out like that.

I came to my conclusion when I heard the expressions "your own world" or "different worlds". You know when you tell someone you are not compatible and you say "we are from different worlds". I think that's the same situation here. We obviously have one world one earth so what does a person mean when they say they are from a different world?

Although we grew up in the same house, we went to different schools had different friends and made different choices. We have had different experiences for some traumatic which made us develop hard shells therefore may appear much more serious and responsible. Our experiences shaped us and made us all different people with different goals and motivators. And so my siblings and I lived in the same house but we definitely come from different worlds I suppose that is why there can only be one me.

      Sounds like an interesting household, never a dull moment. As long as everyone loves and values each other I'd say you are very blessed. I bet growing up like this you probably can accept differences in people much quicker.
