To assume that one size fits all is one of the most foolish things an individual can do. I have seen this apply to all aspects of life, from medicine, to kids playing on a swing set, to college. We have this innate belief that we all work the same way, although we don’t. The fact that we think this way – I believe – is that we are not ignorant so much as simply avoiding the truth and looking the other way.
I have struggled with this all my life. In everything I ever did, as much as I was struggling, I never got help. I went to therapists for many reasons. They made fun of me. Elementary school teachers bullied me. Friends have crossed me off their lists. All because I am different.
I don’t intend to make a sad post, or a post that yells look at me! I am a victim! In fact, it’s quite the opposite. It’s been a while since I posted something, and I had this thought today, so I thought I would write about it.
It can be a cruel world in which we try to fit each other into something that is only unique to us. But if we start to look around, we can begin to understand how different we all are – every single one of us.
If we do that…maybe the world could be a better place.
