Thought for today:

‘When you’re different, sometimes you don’t see the millions of people who accept you for what you are. All you notice is the person who doesn’t.’

— Jodie Picoult

For many people, growing up is about conformity, acceptance and not standing out.

There will always have been someone who simply didn’t care about these things.

I can remember several from my early years – I still remember them today.

Daring to be different in my teenage years was a very scary thing indeed.

Through the lens of hindsight, we can see things differently.

My teenage years featured some bullying because I had long hair.

I dressed differently but had a small circle of friends who were similar, if not the same.

We stuck together and developed the confidence to be ourselves.

I realise now that there were a great many people who accepted me for who I was.

My parents, family, teachers, classmates, other friends and even our neighbours.

As it was, so it is.
