Being Different is a Blessing, Not a Curse

Do you think you are weird because you are different than others? I see you struggle with what to wear and how to look. Why? Wear whatever you like to and be happy with they way you look. It doesn’t matter if you look different than others. Being different is a blessing, not a curse.

Ella, The Enchanted Princess, is your role model. She isn’t like any other princesses. Ella is a bald princess. Do you think she is ugly because she is bald? She is just a unique and brave little girl who learns how to believe in herself. There is no shame in being different. You may be bald, tall, dark, white, short, fat or thin, no matter how you are, you will always be beautiful. We should all take lessons from Ella The Enchanted Princess. Princess Ella is a blessing in disguise. She was created to show everyone who feels different that are a blessing too!

It’s okay to be different, but it’s not good to change yourself just because you think people won’t like you. If you are different, that’s a blessing, not a curse. Think about it, if you are different, you stand out in a crowd.

You are not like everyone else. You are special. I remember my choices were different as a kid than other children. I wanted to learn to how to ride a horse when other kids wanted to ride their bikes. My parents encouraged me to follow my heart's desire. I took horseback riding lessons. I fell from a horse, so many times, I had cuts and bruises. Some of my friends made fun of me. But I stuck with it and was victorious, and I could ride a horse, and my friends could only ride a bike. I was very proud of myself! So, you should understand that if you encourage your differences, you can do something very exclusive, something others cannot even think about doing.

It is easy to be like everyone else. But being unique is challenging. You should always keep in mind that inner beauty is far more important than outer beauty. Don’t act like others just to be with the "in" crowd; this will not make you happy. You should always have a beautiful heart. If you are kind, polite, friendly and happy, it makes you more attractive than anyone else. Just because the "in" crowd doesn't like you, doesn't mean that you don't belong. Start your crowd and have people follow you!

Never think of yourself as underneath someone else because you are different. Also, be kind and fair. If you notice someone is different, don't make fun, learn from your friend's differences. Everyone is a unique individual, and no one has the right to treat someone poorly even if you think they are not the same as you. Realize everyone can't be the same. The world would be very boring. Treat people the way you want them to treat you!

If friends in school are making fun of you, they are not your real friends. Your friend is the one who comes and talks to you after the bullies are gone. A true friend will never make fun of you. Don't ever feel like you have to change for the bullies! There will always be bullies who will tease you throughout your life. Just embrace yourself for who you are and everyone will embrace you too. The bullies have to prove to themselves that they are better than others by treating other people mean. You should feel sorry for them not for you. They are the ones who will wind up with no friends. Loving yourself is important. Accept yourself as you are. Then only you can be the best of yourself. You can achieve anything you put your mind too. Do not suppress your wishes, for they are precious.

If you would like to be different, be it proudly without any hesitation because you are special and will conquer all your life dreams. Being different often means being valuable in my opinion.
