You are only free when you realize you belong no place - you belong every place - no place at all. The price is high. The reward is great. - Dr. Maya Angelou.
For the longest time, I ask myself over and over again, "What the hell is wrong with me? Why can't I be like the others?" It turns out, there was nothing wrong with me.
I am different because I chose to speak truth to bullshit. I am different because I refused to choose the comfort feeling of belonging over stand up for what was right. I am different because I stopped giving a crap about what people might think of me. I am different because I no longer find the needs to justify my core values.
I will continue to be different as I am quite comfortable being alone in the wilderness.
