Unique Like A Snowflake

Your uniqueness and why you should embrace it.

Unique Like A Snowflake
Life in The Right Direction

When I was a little girl, my mom used to read me a story called “No Two Alike.” It told a story about how no two things are exactly alike in nature, even snowflakes. Living in Chicago and having witnessed many snowfalls, my 5-year-old self was skeptical that all snowflakes really were different. After asking my mom and my dad, I came to believe that the cold white blobs falling from the sky actually were all different from one another.

From that moment on, I remembered the uniqueness of snowflakes.

However, as I grew up and endured the typical struggles of middle school and high school, I realized I had forgotten about that story and the uniqueness my mother taught me about. As a teenager, it is typical to try to fit in. You wanted to dress the same way as everyone else, you wanted to eat the same foods at lunchtime as everyone else and you even pretend to like the same music. But why?

Think about how monotonous the world would be if there was only one type of person. Each individual has a unique set of talents, aspirations, fears, beliefs and preferences. There will always be pressure from the media, your friends, your family, and even strangers to fit a certain mold of how you should be. Despite what they say, you should never hide who you are to please others. Each aspect of you is what makes you beautifully unique, embrace that and share it with the world.

By seeing the world as a blizzard of individuals, you are free to embrace your aspirations without worrying about what others may think. Your abilities are limitless as long as you stand proud and embrace your unique talents.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.
