Weird is a word people use to name things they don’t undertstand.
If you’ve ever been called weird you’ll understand how it can hurt:
– meaning: “you’re not one of us.”
…but weird is just wired differently.
And we’re all wired differently – each of us is a unique expression of the infinite variability of being alive. It is why we’re all here.
I learned to be grateful for weird – and came to understand how encountering difference is how we really learn.
So next time someone calls you “weird”, I invite you to try something…
say “thank you”
and get your weird on.
