“Insane to be normal, it is, but you would be crazy to be different not – ok, because that is! Hmmmmm. To be different is ok. Hmmmm.”
“Ok to be different, it is, me on this trust! Meant to be, be who you were. Hmmm.”
There is so much outcry and controversy by many who say “I want to be different!!” Yet, when pushed and you ask what they mean by being different, and many answer with a simple ‘Oh l don’t really know, just different! I don’t want to be the same as everyone else. I have found when people are not in a social peer group but simply individuals they are different, but social peer pressure when in group, reduces them back to being no different to anyone else, go figure? Except, well that is the detriment of societal thinking isn’t it? Society has expectations or definitions of what is acceptable behaviour, style, language, communications, size, sexuality, thinking – and yet when pushed even harder society cannot freely define truthfully what ‘normal’ really is?
Before my Asperger’s diagnosis, l was different by default, l was neither normal not abnormal, l was just me. I love difference, diversity, variety – it’s the very spice of life! I think the secret is to just trust in you and accept where it takes you.”
“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.”
