As a teenager I remember getting frustrated with myself, I had thoughts that didn't coincide with others, feelings that I could not fully disclose for failure of understanding. I just felt like no one in the world could feel me on the crazy thoughts running through my head.
I remember thinking of questions/topics like....
"Why do we exist?"
"Where do we go after this life?"
"Who was the first to speak, and why did we all follow that method?"
"Who made certain words bad"
"Why of all fingers is the middle one bad,it doesn't look bad?"
and plenty of others...
These might seem like some "out there" or "crazy" sorts of questions but to me they were curiosities. Curiosities that weren't answered or at least not answered to my liking. I can't remember who it was but I remember someone saying to me once " With thinking like that you must be into philosophy". Honestly I wasn't or at that time I just wasn't aware of the some of the great philosophers in history.
Many times throughout my life I've felt a distance from everyone around me. I felt my thoughts, my beliefs weren't shared, they were crazy.
However as I've gotten older especially after starting this blog I realize NO! I am not wrong, society is wrong. In modern society we are conditioned to conform. Some of us just can't, we don't want too, we see the world in different ways.
Here's a perfect video to capture what I'm aiming at here:
I believe there are two types of people when it comes to this subject matter. The people that say "This dude is NUTS!" and those that say "This is SO TRUE!"
I'm with the latter. I hear stuff like this and I think "YES!, Yes you know what no one is better or smarter than me, no one is more valuable or less valuable than me. I can make a difference big or small in this world. I do not have to accept what I have been given, I can & will make a path of my own!"
The script of ordinary living is not one I want to live out. I want to write my own script, I want to live my own reality, and I sincerely want to live my own happiness!!!
My mind is unconventional and I'm sure I'm not alone, so.....
"Let's be unconventional and live this life on our terms!"
