Yes, you are indeed right. I’m weird and a bit strange unconventional, odd, different. But no, I do not want to cut myself into pieces to suit to your approval of what’s normal and what’s needed. I do not need to edit myself to fit in. I do not need to apologize for what and who I am. I am strong enough to live my life in my own terms. I dance to the beat of my own music. It doesn’t matter if nobody understands me. I am just being me. I am real. I am beautiful. I am unique. I am a proud misfit.
~ A co-worker asked me a week ago of what I usually do during my free time and I answered that I read poetry and scribble some pieces most of the time. Shaking his head, my reply invited a chuckle and an eye roll from the others as well.
