Every person is different right? No two people are identical. We all look different, dress different, joke different, process different. Being different is not bad. I think culture is starting to accept that as well. Not everyone thinks the same and not everyone believes the same. This has been a progress to culture and in some ways a negative to Christianity. Here are four things I believe about being different.
1. We aren’t that different.
Now granted some of those things look different from person to person, but when we break it down aren’t we all just people trying to figure out life. Aren’t we all lazy, watching too much Netflix, waiting on microwaved food to finish cooking? No, thats just me? Okay I’ll move on to my next point.
2. We shouldn’t force being different.
Being different just to be different is a false identity. If you are being different to get back at someone or to be popular/fit in you’re not being different you’re being like everyone else. Posting perfect selfies don’t make you different they make you like every other millennial Instagram user. We can’t be different for any other reason than this, different is who we are called to be.
3. We are called to be different
4. We shouldn’t be different alone
So, here are my final thoughts. Find people in your life who you can be yourself with. People who encourage you and allow you to be different. Life is hard, but it’s a little easier with others supporting you. Don’t be different alone.
