I’m an odd duck. I came to terms with this a long time ago. Realizing this has kept me out of the comparison game. I don’t have to be like anybody else, because I’m not for the most part.

I remember wanting to be cool like everyone else. I liked the way they dressed. I liked the way they walked. I liked who they hung out with. I was jealous and I couldn’t tell you why. Do you know what I mean?

Then, one day, you find a group of friends who accept you just as you are. You don’t have to play the comparison game, because they like you for you. Your differences bring you together. It is an awesome feeling.

I’m thankful for friends like this. It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been apart, everything falls back into place very quickly. Conversation gets easy. Everything is familiar, just like being home…because it is home.

I have some friendships like this. I am so thankful for them. If I’m honest, I would invite more friendships like this to be. Getting to be with people and enjoy them and their company in that judgement free space…that’s the good stuff.

It’s so awesome to be odd, and be accepted for it.
