How Weird


I’ve been thinking a lot about the word “weird”. I really like it. I know it’s often used as an insult, but no matter in what context someone uses it to describe me, I take it as a compliment. Why? Because it means I’m stepping outside of someone else’s self-imposed limitations and not being restricted by them.

When someone refers to another as “weird” in a derogatory way, it’s because the “weird” person represents something that’s way out of the comfort zone of the other individual. Whenever we push ourselves beyond the limits of our comfort zone it leads to growth. And since growth is what we’re here for, if I light up something in you by my weirdness, well then, you’re welcome!

And remember, if you’re stuck in this judgmental mindset just know that there are going to be plenty of “weirdos” that come along throughout your life to help you move past it. So get out of your box, kick it to the curb, and go have fun hanging out with the other oddballs!

From Over There:
“To be comfortable in the presence of those who you perceive to be different than you is to first be comfortable with yourself. It is the individual who judges others harshly that is in non-acceptance of themselves. To accept the self without the need for action minimized by socially imposed norms is the path to true liberation and acceptance of all. This acceptance allows the unique traits of individuals to flourish, creating a more balanced and egalitarian society.”
