After a ‘character building’ day recently and I realised I was considering giving up until I realised what I was thinking sounded like giving up and I will
It did made me think ‘Why’? Why did I feel different at school from everyone else? Why did I have completely different aspirations from everyone else? Why when I was in college and sent out on our first assignment (previously blogged about in – “Why am I writing this like it is going to be published) did I come back with a totally different perspective than anyone else? Why I Am the only person I know who has the interests that I have and have to find my social group Online and even though I think I Am completely like everyone else people refer to me as Spooks etc? Why Am I winding up when others are winding down?
Instead of giving up I decided to look for the purpose in my character building day and a couple weeks later these ‘Why’s’ aren’t bothering me now. The most important question I have now is ‘Do I care that I tend to be on a totally different wavelength and am I happy being me? And the answer to the first question is ‘No’ and the answer to the second question is ‘Yes’ so as the picture so aptly says “I Am not crazy, my reality is just different to yours”
“If a man does not keep pace with his companions , perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music he hears however measured or far away”
Henry David Thoreau
