Have you ever been told you’re weird? Or that thing you did was weird?
I have. In some sentences, repeatedly so.
This is a tag I have decided to own and not be ashamed, embarrassed or withdraw from. I own this tag like a boss and wear it proudly like a badge. A big, shiny, badge sitting on my chest for everyone to see.
Is this statement…weird?
Weird is a term people use when they don’t accept, agree or understand you or your choices. Often it comes from a place of insecurity, ignorance or judgement.
Knowing this is empowering.
Information is key. Typically, there are now three choices to make; you can either invest the time to bridge that understanding, let it be and agree people are different, or just walk away from the situation or relationship .
Each situation will require a different chosen path.
People will always have different view points on you and your decisions. A friend or family member might not like the way you cut your hair, the size of your ass, your new nose, sexuality, new boyfriend or holiday locations. The list is limitless and can be as petty or significant as one can imagine.
Some people will disagree with you, others will agree with you and the rest will accept those decisions as yours whether they agree or not.
If you’ve thought out your decisions, believe they reflect your real self and are in your best interest, then it is what it is.
Everyone is different and it’s time people start accepting it.
