What makes me Different

Updated on May 24, 2018

Devika enjoys sharing her work with a friendly community. Writing is a big part of her life. Online work has improved her lifestyle.

Why am I Different?

I think and do what I feel is right for me.

I don't depend on the conversations of others, and enjoy my life the way I feel makes is the happiest and in a unique way with my beautiful surroundings.

My independent life has taught me to be that way.

I don’t care for what others talk about me.

I am 1.65 meters tall and have brown eyes, black hair with a sign of gray strands. I am happy with my weight and self-being.

  • Are you Different?

You are all different in some way and culture can keep you apart.

Personality traits do make a difference in one’s life.

Characteristics show the real you.

  • I am different in many ways.

My experiences have taught me to be unique and to stand out in a crowd.

I always stood out in a crowd just the way I was raised.

My positive life made it all feel too easy at times.

I have a greater outlook on my life I think positive and feel joyful.

I realized that certain people feel threatened by me and that does surprise me.

I know I am different but don't make an issue of it.

My skin color tells me I am extraordinary.

The advantages that I have are endless.

I can manage any schedule and remain calm in what I do.

I avoid panic and frustration moments as much as I can when performing difficult tasks.

Life for me is free and beautiful.

I avoid those who I know are troublesome or toxic to the relationship.

I don't look for a problem and hesitate to solve it.

I enjoy what I know makes me the happiest.

I am not the people pleaser.

I am true and direct in what I say to any individual.

I don't wait to solve an issue unless it is out of my reach then I would wait for the moment to get rid of the problem.

It depends on the situation and if the problem concerns a certain individual.

I don't take in any nonsense. Once I know a person is problematic or is trying to be argumentative I resolve the issue right there and then.

I don't walk away and give up on trying something new.

I make sure the task is complete before I go on to the next project.

I prefer to be with my family than with any acquaintances.

I am an observant person and take notice of my surroundings at all times.

I know when and who to genuinely help when in need.

I don't like the idea of cheaters but they do exist so not much to be fixed unless they prove their guilt is true.

I am respected and accepted so that has a lot to do with my behavior skills and pleasant manners.

I know how to enjoy myself and how to be truly happy.

Many people in our small community don't know how to have a good laugh.

I know what it feels like to have a good laugh and feel that thrill of good conversations.

I enjoy my photo being taken.

I notice what most of others don't see.

My life is interesting and different because, I can communicate in English and most of the local people don't know the language.

I am special in my own way.

Lots of people remember me for the way I appear.

My simple appearance makes me extra looked at.

My culture is exotic and not common in Croatia that has opened my eyes to another life.

My cultural events are uncommon in southeastern Europe.

My celebrations are not the same as of other cultures.

A different lifestyle stands out in crowds.

I am not afraid of taking risks and persist on my goals.

When I have my mind set on finding a lost item I make sure to find that item.

If something or someone needs my attention I don't ignore it or them.

I am darker and feel proud about my world of experiences.

I am open to all cultures and would not let any barrier stand in my way to connect to the different cultures, and languages.

People are curious to know of me. Whenever I go about shopping or out into town for the day I am admired and stared at all the time.

It shows me I am different and people enjoy looking at me.

I don't mind being stared at I actually enjoy that feeling of greatness.

I have a different culture and no one can be who I am.

They can wish to be but that is far from really happening. I am strong and confident and always look at life from a positive way.

The competitive life moments made me see more than I had expected from me.

I enjoy cooking the variety of foods, and that shows my courage in presenting what I know is worthy of my time.

During the summer time I don't need a sun tan. People often tell me I am lucky to have such beautiful skin color.

Life is beautiful and I am different for the many aspects that only I have and can have.

A culture can keep you apart only if you have that kind of belief.

Many people have issues with weight gain or weight loss.

I gain a few kilograms during the winter and make sure to lose the weight during the summer.

I don't make my weight an issue I just deal with it.

I can fit into all my clothing and my trick in buying clothing is always one size bigger that makes a huge difference to me.

I never wanted or want to be like anyone else but me.

I don't dress like others do and I don't expect others to dress like me.

I won't change me in any way for any one.

I don't compare my life to another, or of what I have to another.

My lifestyle is for me and nobody else.

I know of someone who feels threatened by my true self.

People who behave that way are foolish or have small minds.

  • Little things amuse little minds!

I just like to wear what I like and I don't follow any new fashion definitely, not for me.

What people think or say about me is meaningless.

I have always been straight and to the point.

If someone feels I am a bit too harsh with my words still I don't care for their actions or words.

I am fine with me that is all that matters to me.

I have love, happiness and good health and without that I am powerless.

I have learned to be myself and speak from the heart.

I am an understanding person, lovable and I laugh easily.

I stand up for myself.

I describe me as different as I am unique with all my own views and opportunities.

I don't look down on others and don't expect anyone else to look down on me for any reason.

I got my attitude from my great childhood years.

Constantly being put on a pedestal made me feel this way. Confident and free within me.

I am always best dressed and felt high in my opinions and in my self-esteem. Over time it made me feel at my best.

  • What makes you different from another?

You are who you are for all the reasons only you know for yourself.

  • What can you learn from your differences and from what you know is most important to you?

When you are different that is all you need in life to make you feel important.

  • What are your challenges in the real world?

  • Do you wish to lose more weight?

  • Do you feel pressured by the small stuff?

  • What makes you feel negative about life?

  • Are you happy with the way you are, in shape, lifestyles?

  • Are you comfortable in your skin?

  • Do you care what others think of you?

  • Do you know what it is like to be different from personal experiences?

I know what it is like to be different from my personal experiences.

I love myself for all that and more.

Sometimes when you mention different it is misunderstood and teasing or bullying comes to mind.

In this case, it is not about like teasing and bullying, instead about being different in a much more positive and confident way.

How are you different from your parents or other family members?

      " My experiences have taught me to be unique and to stand out from the crowd" your words some you up admirably. This is another no nonsense article dealing with human behaviour. Your outlook on life is an inspiration of how life should be lived. Voted up,interesting useful.

      It would be silly to say I don't care what others think of me. I believe we all do to a certain degree. Wonderful reflections here DDE.

      This is a very good hub about how it feels to be comfortable in your own skin. Having confidence and living life it the way that makes you comfortable is apparent by your descriptions. It is not easy for many people to have that sense of confidence. Thanks for sharing your feeling,
