There are those times in our lives that force us to separate ourselves from situations or people that we’ve outgrown. Fear and apprehension keeps us from branching out on our own. Because let’s face it, those that stand alone, at times get misunderstood. It’s not that you’re no longer relevant. It’s mainly because my assignment does not include you in the way you want to be included.
Just like on the political stage at the moment; Trump is dominating the GOP arena because he’s strikingly different from the other candidates. Does this make him better than the rest? Or is he truly saying the same thing that the GOP stands for, just in a contrasting way.
Bernie Sanders is different from what the Democratic party is used too. But again, is he wrong? Or is he just saying the same thing, just in a simpler way. Sanders made his campaign easy enough for a fourth grader to understand. (Remember the movie with Denzel Washington, Philadelphia, when he tells Tom Hanks, “Explain it to me like I’m a fourth grader.” For me, that’s Bernie.
In life we go through situations that no one around you can relate to because it is something they have yet to experience. Does that make their judgments of you right? Definitely not, but it is understandable.
Our lives constantly contrast one another’s, however, we must be open enough to understand that, it is ok. No matter what the world tells us, different is not bad.
Different is what makes us all better humans.
Like the saying goes; “If you knew better, you’d do better.”
But, in the meantime, I am thankful for all the positive situations in my life as well as the negatives. Without the negative situations I would not be able to recognize the positive ones. I am thankful for those who have judged me according to their own values, and not on my merit. I am thankful that I do not take others opinions of me personally, I understand they are looking at me through a lens that is in total contrast to mine.
Therefore, as always, we must remember that all we have to do in this life to be successful is to;
Live Free and Love On Purpose
