Ever hear the expression “it sicks out like a sore thumb?” I tend to think about hide and seek when we were all kids when I hear this expression, but I want to take one step further and tie it into everyday aspects of life.
Let me begin by stating the rule. Trying to fit in is a lot tougher than sticking out. Be yourself and you will look far different than the norm.
Okay so in life we tend to join cliques; it’s natural and almost occurs all the time. Now when we were young playing hide and seek, sticking out was considered a bad thing, as it wold get you caught. We all know that nobody really wanted to be “it.” Well nowadays I am going to go out there and claim that “sticking out” is not a bad thing. Actually, I wuld like to think of it as a plus.
It’s simple, why would everyone wanna be the same as everyone else? It just seems illogical and quite frankly, a little dumb. Guys, don’t quote me, but I’m pretty confident that most women want a man that is not like the rest, well at least would prefer one. Women, look speaking on behalf of most men, we prefer uniqueness.
Now those of you who actually attempt to “fit in” need to not anymore. Don’t take that the wrong way, I mean if that is what truly will make you happy, then by all means, do tat, but for the most part, I believe being true to yourself will ultimately make you the happiest in the long run.
Like the very rule states, it is much tougher to try to fit in with the masses. This is just me talking, but a person has much more of my respect if they are themself. Seems easy right?
So here is my challenge. For one day, keep to yourself, try to see what you think and act like when you are alone. Take it from us. Step the SWAG game up in this world.
