What Makes You And Me Different?

Each individual is unique. There can never be another Charlie Chaplin or Oprah Winfrey. Heck, there can never be another me. I’m not comparing myself to these famous people. What I’m trying to say is I’m different from everyone I meet. The new people I meet in the different orgs I join may have the same interests as I have but we may also have different preferences.

Identical twins have mirror images. They can be together all the time and wear the same design of dresses but they can have different personalities. They just enjoy each other’s company.

One of the features that support the uniqueness of an individual is his name. By the time a child is born, he/she is given a name. As I have observed, names of children are becoming more unique than ever. As they grow, they may ask themselves ‘What does my name mean?’. They can simply Google it but the more unique their name is, the harder it is to find their name meanings. How about if the child is given a common name like John and his last name’s Smith? There are probably thousands of John Smiths living in America alone. That doesn’t mean he’s not unique. It’s not all about the name. It’s just a plus if you’re name’s uncommon.

Doctor Suess said “Today, you are you. That is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.” I have to say, he summed up how we should look at ourselves. There are people who wish they could be Donald Trump or some women would want to be like Heidi Klum. We shouldn’t compare ourselves to people who live very differently from us. We have our own talents, skills, and personality that sets us aside from everyone else. We should embrace our uniqueness. It’s one of the part of life which some of us have the hard time accepting.
