“Don’t be afraid of being different, be afraid of being the same as everyone else.”
Ever heard something like this before? I hear different quotes about being different many times before. When I was younger, I would always try and act like other people or I would always follow what other people were doing because I wanted to fit in. As I grew up, I slowly realized that it’s better to be your own person. Being different is what makes you who you are. I’m different in many ways, and I am glad I am finally able to say that I love being different. I used to hate being different, but if I weren’t different, I wouldn’t be the Devon everyone knows and loves because I would be too busy pretending to be someone else. I am constantly changing and finding who I am now that I’m in college, and I love that I am constantly improving myself. There are some things I wish I wasn’t, but everyone has flaws. Flaws are beautiful. Never forget that. Take a break today and reflect on what makes you different from others, and learn to love that about yourself.
