Something Different

Something Different

I’m sick and tired of hearing the phrase “too different“. Yes, the things we aren’t used to can be somewhat intimidating. Yes, the things that we aren’t as exposed to can be very mysterious. Yes, the things we’ve never seen or dealt with may come with some trials of test and errors. But, so what?

The things you aren’t used to can teach you so much. The things you aren’t regularly exposed to can show you a whole new way to see the world in which you are living. The things you have to experiment with may just be your answer to several questions you have had steaming in the back of your mind.

I get it. There’s the “too different” that make your world clash with theirs and nothing but chaos seems to come of it, despite the lesson there is to learn in all of it. But there is also the “too different” that you feel a calling to, that beckons you to get to know it better, to explore your options and to test your limits.

Haven’t you ever been told “there’s nothing wrong with being different”? I see the world differently; you see the world differently. You examine the situation one way while I examine it with a whole different perspective. We can be sitting side by side on the spectrum, but still see things at different eye levels. We can also be trying to scream at each other from opposite sides of the spectrum but, still, either way, something comes of it.

Your world might have always been filled with security while my world might have been dusted with doubt. Your eyes might see the colors of the rainbow while my eyes see only black, grey, and white. It doesn’t matter how “different” we are. But when it comes to denying each other the potential to venture into our “different” worlds, then it matters.

Am I “too different” to try and understand what kind of life you’ve lived? Am I “too different” to become a friend who you can count on? Am I “too different” that you cannot learn anything from me, or vice versa? No.

So enough bullshit about how I will never understand how you see things, enough excuses about why you shouldn’t bother to try and explain your life to me. Enough is enough. There’s no such thing as “too different“, there’s just “different“.

NOTICE!

Hi everyone,

A bit of time has passed since my last vague post here. I did mean what I said to a certain extent. This means I will be taking a break from blogging for quite some time. I am going to be focusing on everything that is changing around me in my life right now and everything that has yet to come. If you would like to check out the post I published on my second blog, here’s the link:

“To My Readers: A Heads Up”

If any of you would like to follow my second blog, I do have posts scheduled to publish every Sunday and Thursday morning. Those will continue to go up for quite some time and hopefully I will be back before they run out.

I would like to thank you guys for following me on my journeys whether you have followed me from the beginning, middle, or just followed me recently. I have always appreciated hearing back from you all. Thank you for all the support you have given me.

Be back soon.
