THE CASE OF BEING WEIRD BY JASON MOREY
I sometimes enjoy thinking about and talking about how weird I am, and I really AM weird. I like to believe that I own it fairly well, and I am sure that my friends would agree with me.
The thing about being weird, and what most people fail to realize in their everyday lives, is that everyone .
Being weird is what makes someone unique, it is what makes them an individual.
At the end of the day there really is no such thing as being normal, no matter how outwardly “normal” someone may appear.
“Normal” is what someone is before you have had the chance to really know them. People are like books, they all look relatively the same on the outside, and until you crack them open you really won’t know what makes them different from the rest. Sure, you CAN judge a book by its cover, but everybody knows how that goes.
Everybody has their quirks, different ways that they are awkward, different mannerisms that often times only a select group of people see.
These quirks, the things that people try to hide from their outward appearance, are likely the first things a close friend would say that they love about you. They wouldn’t say, “Oh yeah, my favorite thing about my best friend Steve? He has a really cool car.” No, much more likely they would say something like, “I love how Steve talks to himself out loud.” At the end of the day your quirks are what make you special, they are the reason that people want to be with you.
As a whole I believe that we should stop trying to hide who we truly are from the world. We should stop being afraid of what people may think, accept ourselves for who we are and allow the rest of the world to know who we really are. Hiding behind a mask of normality never took anyone very far.
Yeah, you could say that I am weird, but you could also just say that I’m ME.
