The Letter I

I
Individuality
I must admit that there for a while I misplaced my own individuality in order to be accepted by a few. It’s a lesson in life that I think we all learn and the final lessons can be very hurtful. I became someone I really didn’t like and all for the sake of feeling as though I belonged. The hurt I had to feel opened my eyes to the fact that all that were in this so call “select” group lacked their own character and individuality since they all spoke as one when in a group yet cussed and complained in private because they did not like what was said or done. But enough of that I am now back to being me. I say what I feel and I keep company with those who are not afraid to be themselves and who also accept others for having their own individuality.

Here’s the lyrics to a song that sums it all up nicely (Jessica Andrews…..That’s who I am)

If I live to be a hundred and never see the seven wonders….That'll be alright….If I don't make it to the big leagues……If I never win a Grammy…..I'm gonna be just fine'….Cause I know exactly who I am….
I am Rosemary's granddaughtet
The spitting image of my father
And when the day is done
My momma's still my biggest fan
Sometimes I'm clueless and I'm clumsy
But I've got friends that love me
And they know just where I stand
It's all a part of me
And that's who I am
So when I make a big mistake……When I fall flat on my face…..I know I'll be alright………Should my tender heart be broken…….I will cry those teardrops knowing I will be just fine'…..Cause nothin' changes who I am…..
I am Rosemary's granddaughter
The spitting image of my father
And when the day is done
My momma's still my biggest fan
Sometimes I'm clueless and I'm clumsy
But I've got friends that love me
And they know just where I stand
It's all a part of me
And that's who I am
I'm a saint and I'm a sinner…….I'm a loser, I'm a winner…..I am steady and unstable…I'm young but I am able………………
I am Rosemary's granddaughter
The spitting image of my father
And when the day is done
My momma's still my biggest fan
Sometimes I'm clueless and I'm clumsy
But I've got friends that love me
And they know where I stand
It's all a part of me………………………………………That's who I am

It's very sad that some people go through life with no "true" identity. Taking on others personalities or interests in an attempt to fit in. It's a gift when a person finally realizes that it isn't the "stuff" on the outside that separates us from everyone and makes us unique.
I love the "real" you. :)

Your post fits my group of co-workers at my last job when I felt I had to become someone I wasn't. A few upcoming letters describes those feelings with that job.

There was a time I tried to fit in, but it never worked. No matter what, people always said I was odd. I learned to embrace that.

One thing my old high school friends say about me is that they liked it that I was never afraid to be myself. I learned early on that it was pointless to try and fit in, so I just went my own way.

Great song! I'm going to share the lyrics with my kids. It would be boring if we were all the same.
