Being Different is GOOD!

Updated on July 8, 2017

I am Different and I like it!

Your different or weird from others, so what? Does that make you a bad person? No, it makes you who you are. I am an identical twin; my sister is outgoing, open, and honest and loves to be the center of attention. I am outgoing, but I am cautious, sometimes quiet and mostly in the background. I always let her take the limelight; sometimes I will share it with her. But over the years I have learned that I am still a good person, just different.

We are all different
We are all different

Being Different & Unique is OK

After years of comparing myself to her I realized that I am a different or weird person from her, only others thought we were the same because we looked so much a like. Once you realize that you are different from your twin, sister, friend, mother, father and you have dissimilar believes and wants, then you are free as an individual. My sister and I are closer now because I have accepted my uniqueness and embraced the person that I am and want to be.

Whether you dress differently than others, not as pretty as the next girl or not the football captain doesn’t mean you’re any less of a person. I believe a good person is someone that is honest, trustworthily, helpful to others and carries God within their being. We all have bad thoughts, make bad decisions and even hurt the people we love the most. But that doesn’t make us bad people. It makes us human, and yes, humans make mistakes.

Whether your quiet, shy, loud, obnoxious, an introvert or an extrovert, it doesn’t matter, because the people that know you, love you. Be happy with yourself, look deep inside your heart and know that no other person has the right to judge you. Find your meaning of life. Feel secure in your own skin. Life is full of unique people, be proud to be apart of that world.

So I ask you again, are you different or weird from others? So what? We need people like you to make this world colorful and distinctive. Be proud of who you are because there is only one of you. A different person doesn’t make them a bad person, just makes them unique!

      Being different is most definately endearing so I say enjoy it and be comfortable with it,people will be drawn to the confidence you have in who you are.It can feel very liberating knowing and embracing your difference and can also give you strength of character.

      11 years ago took me only a few minutes amongst your haven of hubs to know you were different - and that you were making a difference - and uniquely - that's why you're so good!

      Great hub. I have fraternal twins and my sister has identical boys. I can only imagine the comparing that goes on. I've just now begun to embrace myself for being a little off the wall, not your average Jane by nay stretch of the imagination. So, this hub speaks to me.

      Lovely Hub. I'd like to give to all the Teens I know as they tend to give in to Peer Pressure and want to be like everyone else.
