Nothing In Life Is 'One Size Fits All'

Do you ever feel like no one truly understands you? Like everyone sees you ‘with the crowd’? You know you’re completely different from everyone else or at least you feel different. People treat you just like everyone else and think you talk, walk, act and think just like everyone else, I know you’re not.

I understand when you say you feel different. When you feel that everyone treats you the same but no one is really treating you right or the way you feel you should be treated.

If you go and confide in someone, you’re really only confiding in him or her because you think they will understand, but they don’t and they never truly will. Even as much as someone says they understand you and where you’re coming from and what you’re trying to say, they never truly will because not one single person is the same as another. They don’t have the same mindset or train of thought as you do. They might think they understand but, in reality, they don’t.

There is a reason why there are different majors in college, different schools to go to, different doctors for certain things, different ways to do something. It is because everyone is different. Everyone has their own way of doing things, their own way of thinking and their own way of living.

Yes, there is a ‘one size fits all’ option in clothing but is it really true? A teen that weighs 90 pounds won’t fit comfortably into the same article of clothing as a teen that is 300 pounds. If that is the case then why is ‘one size fits all’ even an option?

If identical twins aren’t the same why are other people classified as the same? All of our minds work differently. Some aren’t as clear as others and some don’t work as well as others. Some people can’t classify their own train of thought so how can other people classify it for them?

Nothing in life is ‘one size fits all.’ What I mean is that no one on this earth is the same so you cant go thorough your life basing it off of someone else’s. Your mind works differently than everyone else’s. No one can tell you what’s wrong with you, what to do with your life, or how to live your life because theirs is different. Make your life what you want. You can’t compare yourself to others because you don’t know what they are going through or what they are doing.

I think it is safe to say that a lot of people feel they are misunderstood. That’s okay. All you can really do is try and help someone understand, even if it’s not fully. Your mind is your own and no one but you can tell you what its saying. Be proud of who you are and embrace it.
