I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows very well.
– Psalm 139:14
Have you ever talked to someone and the moment someone else enters the conversation, the other persons entire personality, opinion, and even behaviors changes? It’s one of the most annoying, yet unfortunate things. The reality that so many adult people have not found the comfortableness or realness in being exactly who they are, or feeling/believing in what they say or do. Being able to always be yourself is a liberating and satisfying feeling. It gives you the power to disagree, no matter who the opponent is, or the audience may be. It separates you from the crowd and makes others respect you more. Blending in is boring, and no one truly enjoys people who are boring. It is important for you to be bold, and to be original.
This week, think about places or areas of your life where you have assimilated to fit in and start to change so that you can stand out. Remind yourself daily and each of your thoughts and actions are unique and meaningful. Know that you will never be greater than who you are.
“Be different so that people can see you clearly amongst the crowds.”
– Mehmet Murat Ildan
