Life, at times, is hard for everyone, but for some of us …

Life, at times, is hard for everyone … but for some of us, those of us who don’t “fit” in with the normal around us, it is harder and more traumatic. Most “normals/the majority” want us to be like them, to reflect their beliefs and their choices. But when we do not believe as they do, choose as they do, and act as they do … because we do not know how or finally refuse to do so because not being allowed to be ourselves breaks our spirit … to the point that many people finish the job people started by the normals/majority judging, ridiculing, ostracizing, abandoning, or worse … by taking their own lives directly or putting themselves in dangerous circumstances or by addictions or simply by giving up … because they have not yet realized they are valuable too … simply for being a life.

Because of God I did not. He never left me though I did not know that for most of my life. So my job, the purpose He gave me, is to shine for who I am and the purpose He gave me so I would stay in this world to help the minority, the outcasts, and the rejects, the majority want to disappear, plus educate the majority about what they are doing and the consequences for them personally and for all of humanity … socially and economically.

“I was described as a dreamer, a fantasist, and even the village idiot …” Ada Yonath

Nobel Prize winner for chemistry, 2009, Ada Yonath quoted from the following link @ https://www.facebook.com/nobelprize/photos/a.164901829102/10158327844699103/

YES! What people don’t understand, they try to diminish, devalue, or worse, but as Ada, and others know, including me, what people believe, think, judge, and say about someone else does not make it true … and for those of us who forge on anyway, well, as you can see, amazing things do happen for those who venture into the unknown, unimagined, and unrealized.
