Feeling Unusual

Do you hate when people make you do things that you don't want to? I know in the past I've been drug into things I didn't feel like doing. I usually am a strong-willed person (depending on the recipient), but there are some times when people just keep nagging at me that I finally just go along.

I don't want to do things just because everyone else is doing them. I like to do what I want because I like it- just for me, nobody else. I don't like to do things just to fit in. When others make me do things it makes me feel like I'm not myself and I'm made to be a person I am not. I have had my share of being made to hang out with certain people. Most of the friends I've had over the years have not been my pick- but ones I've been "placed" with along the way. I feel like there has not been a friend that I truly could connect to. And I feel like sometimes it is my own fault since I don't have the urge to go out and make friends. It is hard for me to be sociable and go to social events. But, I think if there was one kind person out of the people I know who had the same interests as me and would care about me I would be more willing to spend time with them- but I haven't found that person yet. But, I have found so many close friends through blogging. I have more friends online than I do in "real" life. I can connect better on here too. I love all you guys- you are so encouraging!! : )

So, if you feel like you are in a place that people are trying to urge you to do things you don't want to do- then don't feel like you have to do them. You have your own choice and you should be yourself. It is irritating when others think they have control of your life and they can tell you what to do and where to go. Don't let those people take charge of your life. You are unique and you have a choice. But I also have to mention that our choices alone are not always the best either- if you are hesitant to do something, seek guidance or pray about it first. Praying always helps!! How many times I forget to pray about things that come my way; and it should be my first reaction.

If you feel like you are the only one who is doing things differently- know that different is not always bad. Stand up for yourself and be confident in who you are. I'll leave you with some lyrics I like to a song (Unusual by Kate Voegele) that deals with not being drawn into peer pressure :

I don't wanna be like you
I don't wanna live by your rules
I don't wanna try to fit in
To be typical
I'm just gonna be who I am
I just wanna live in a world
In a world where unusual is beautiful

Well, I hope you enjoyed the post! Have an awesome weekend and thanks for stopping by my blog!!
