For years, you have been told you’re special. It may have been your parents, or your teachers; a television show or a psychologist. Well, I’m sorry to say, you’re not special.

It’s not just you, nobody is special. Not everyone deserves to have their voice heard. Not all opinions matter. Not everything you’re told is the truth, and not everything you see has to be shared. And no, you really can’t be or do anything you set your mind to.

What you are is unique. Every last person on this planet is unique in the metaphorical and literal sense. 

As you go through life, you learn several truths. I am a really bad singer. I’m not very coordinated physically, so I am horrible at sports, or dancing. And I can guarantee with 100%, infallible accuracy that you have skills you’re not good at, either. Nobody is good at everything. Everyone is good at something. I have learned I have a knack for analytical thinking. This amuses me, because some activities you’d typically associate with an analytical mind, like math, I’m not so good at. However things you’d typically associate with a creative mind, I’m pretty good at. Like coordinating things aesthetically. 

That brings me to another point. “creative” versus “analytical” minds. The concept is total bullshit. See above.

What I’m getting at here - is that you need to play to your own abilities. Don’t let others tell you that you need to do, think, or say something. Be unique. Think. Make a sound judgement based on all factors, not because it’s ‘cool’ or it’s whatever some vapid celebrity airhead, media outlet, website, or whatever tells you you need to do.

If you’ve made it this far, I congratulate you. I’m not even asking you to ‘like’ or ‘share’ this. I just want you to think. If I’ve achieved that goal, even for 15 seconds of your life, then it’s a success.
