    What is the one thing that makes you different?

    My experience of life.  Our experiences shape us into the person we are and the values that we hold close, along with DNA and the way our brain is built. Through the sharing of experiences we can learn and grow from each other, taking away a different perspective even of the same event

    There was a time I thought I was different because of my childhood, but now at age 61, I realize many people had tragic childhoods.  So I have to look at something else. I guess I could say one thing that is different is that I am ambidextrous and write equally well with either hand. It is fun as it frustrates my husband who is TOTALLY right handed and can do nothing with his left.

    My place of birth, my current place of living, my parents, my wife, my children, my church, my friends, my colleagues, all of these things and situations, relations etc. make me different and unique.

    Everybody is unique and that is the way we are made by God.

    My thought of life is unique. It is what I am in search of beyond living in human form. It is the goal of finding enlightenment in life before end of life.

    There are many things which make difference in every individual. Every individual is found to be special in  his  own character. However, I define myself special in regards to my thoughts and the way I look up to life. I have a different way of judging  guilt of others and do not wish to judge with a particular  act from themselves.

    If I answer this going off of what everyone (even my haters) will tell you about me, I am open and honest and blunt.  I don't have anything to hide and I am not ashamed of anything or live in regret and will tell it like it is (as nicely as I can but I don't sugarcoat).

    The second trait both my friends and my enemies will tell you is I am one of the only people they have met that have true honest to go, no matter what you have done to me I will always forgive you and give you another chance.  I leave the past in the past and will trust anyone right up front unless you give me a reason not to.

    I am also more loyal and faithful than most people too.  Its a major plus and also a major downfall.  I will never violate my loyalty but if you cross me and hurt someone I care about than I will defend them no matter the cost.

    Mostly I don't care what others think...I love when people will like me but a lot of the time I am overwhelming...mostly because I don't let people lie to themselves and I am very pushy when it comes to doing what is right and moral and the best for humanity.

    Needless to say I have been burned by more people than have cherished this as a friend but the ones that do will tell you that I am irreplaceable and there is only one me.

    You go off of what I think about myself...the thing that seperates me from anyone else is I love unconditionally and I don't stop loving anyone...I just love differently

      I am also very blunt. I think of it as honest to a fault.

      It is almost like my forgiveness curse.  I can't NOT forgive but do you know how many times I have been burned over and over because I also can almost forget? My dad says my loyalty is my biggest virtue and my biggest downfall

    The little things I enjoy. They are special and unique and create the interesting side of me.

    I believe the most significant "thing" that makes us different from each other is our parents, grandparents, great grandparents etc. If you think of us as part of a river; where this river is inclusive of all of your (blood) ancestors, then you may realize mathematically how this uniqueness builds through the ages. Even though in the beginning we all came from the same parents...

      I never thought about it like that. Very interesting!

    Everyone of us is different in different way, there are always people who are smarter, more sensitive, more creative.....but there are always people who are less....we all have something to give and something to take...each of us is a little puzzle piece on a big puzzle of humanity, we just have to find our own place in it....

    Reticence  patience tolerance what make me different from others.I can wait and wait but am not bothered on waiting, I can enjoy it. Peace what I love to hold on.Once a man came to threat me in the scorching heat of summer and he was expecting warm word from me to start a quarrel ,but he became alas or hopeless when he found no sign of sweat on my open skin.Having been surprised he became perplexed or found no way other than to assemble with me and becalm.More when we meet again.
