The best day of her life was the day she realized it is more than okay not to fit in. It is okay to be different, to be a rebel, to stand out. To be the misfit, the odd one out, the loner. To be the quiet one in the back, the one who spends Friday night alone, reading a book, because that is what you enjoy doing most. It is okay to be the one who makes unique choices. The day she realized it is okay not to be someone else, but herself instead, was the day that saved her. The moment she realized trying to fit in so hard did nothing for her, but cramp her style, freed her. High school was hell. For years she thought there was definitely something terribly wrong with her, because she was bullied, ridiculed, misunderstood. Then finally she realized there is not much wrong with her. It is wrong to bully, to ridicule, to judge for no reason. There was something wrong with those people. Why want to fit in with people like that? Ever since she realized all this, her life has been truly worth living. Her life is authentic, weirdly unique. Most people don’t understand her choices, her way of life. She does things differently, and it is quite obviously working for her. Continue to be marvelously outrageous, darling.
