Have you ever wondered on how to respond to someone who tells you “man, you’re terribly weird”?
Sometimes, you shrug it off but deep inside, you feel insecure, you’re not sure if you really fit into society. Not sure if you are not a terrible breed accepted only in your family.
I’m gonna give you something deep to think about. Yeah? Hopefully, that would correct your erstwhile wrong notions about yourself..
There’s this power statement I came across “in His Steps”, a Christian magazine. It was quoted by Ashiwel Okang whose blog is here.
The statement is – “I’m not weird, I’m limited edition”
Wow! Just take a minute or two to let that sink in.
It means you’re unique, special in a special way. Understand your uniqueness when thoughts of insecurity start to creep into your mind.
When motor companies want to design special vehicles, they design limited editions(LEs), the special vehicles meant for a limited number of people. Need I say, that those vehicles are unique?.
You’re unique whether people call you weird or not.
When they eventually call you weird, they are indirectly reminding you of that uniqueness. Smile, you’re unique.
PS: To have the right balance, celebrating your weirdness does not in any way mean you have to keep on indulging in habits that damage your body, soul and spirit.
Mike Murdock once said “Celebrate your differences”.
Psalms 139:14 – Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.
