We Can Be Different|ما می توانیم متفاوت باشیم

“194th story”

People are truly different with each other;

-Some lock themselves in a room when the sky of their life becomes cloudy….

Silence, time, and loneliness is their only cure.

-Some like to be in a crowd. They like to laugh loud so they won’t hear their pain and problems. Not that they are careless, not at all, but their cure is this way.

-Some people scream their love for others, shout their pains and sadness. They are scared, and screech for help.

-Some pours everything inside them. If you dig deep inside them you won’t hear a world out of their mouth, everything spins in their minds, even if he/she is exploding out of problems, wouldn’t speak. Their thoughts are full of anxiety and blues. They are not dry or have a lack of feeling, they are just different.

-Some if fails a thousand of time, would start all over again and never gives up. They are more patient and have extremely high hopes.

-Some can’t even take the smallest problem; it breaks them in pieces and never can glue them back together. They give up with the first problematic situation. Not that they are weak, no, they are just different.

-Some are able to start a family in their 20s, but some can put it together in their 30s, or even 40s. Not that it’s too late or early, but they think differently.

-Some finds their happiness in dancing, singing, hiking, …..others in praying. None of it is wrong, but everyone reaches to happiness in their spirit, in a different way.

All of these was just to remind us,

If people around us think or act differently, their beliefs are dissimilar with ours, their priorities in life was something that seems nonsense to us, don’t dress like us, …..

Doesn’t mean they are bad people, no; they are just different.

This is the simplest way to understand each other, respect and love one another. STOP THE RACISIM.

  12. I loved this wonderful reminder that it is OKAY to be who we are. We are all different and need to be accepting of this.

    For myself, it took me a while to understand that it’s alright that others think, act, do life differently than I do. In fact, it is perfect! If we all did the same and thought the same, it would be a boring world.
    Thank you, Laleh!! Hugz
