Value your Difference

Blurb

As children grow and try to find themselves they often find it difficult coping with what is different around them. It is even worst when there is no proper guidance around them. Bulling is one of the major issues faced by children around the world today.One of the most effective ways to resolve a problem any kind and to heal emotional wounds is through talking. Depending on the seriousness of the issue you can choose to pay a lot of money to a professional listener or you can find someone you trust to talk to, either way there is always some out there willing to listen. Let's talk

Chapter 1

The Almighty God, the One and Only, the Creator of the Universe and Earth. Created all things different, in pairs but different and in different times. Each with a deeper meaning and purpose. With the heaven and earth, the moon and the stars, the darkness and the light, animals and creatures in and above the earth, the ocean and the land, the animals and the plants. The minerals and oils that binds, holds and keeps the earth alive. Life and death. All different but by a purpose.

As human beings we have our different personalities and characters, different shapes and sizes, different colors, different backgrounds in education, beliefs, traditions, lifestyles and values. Some of it is by nature/creation, by our learning experiences and some by choice. The way we are right now is a combination of a lot things put together and most of it is through someone else’s hard work(inherited genes, wealth and lifestyle).We do nothing to gain it, we are born in it and what we make with it will be the inheritance of someone else. Even though we know all this, we still stare and are shocked when we see something or someone different to us. The worst is when we comment badly, discriminate, judge and treat anyone/anything different to us as if they (it) do not belong in the same world as us.

Have you ever been teased and treated badly because you too tall, too thin, too big, too short, too pale, too dark? Or maybe you have been teased about your intelligence (fast leaner, good memory or slow learner, ask too many questions), or maybe you too quiet, soft hearted or too daring and you are a go getter. Or maybe you been teased about your family(home),community, country, religion and the color of your skin, your name, maybe you do not follow fashion trends, or the music you listen to is not so popular, maybe the way you dance and even your voice is different. It could also be that your peers always do things that are out of your character or they just always seem to be so clued-up with a lot of things that you know nothing about or things you are not ready for. Maybe you are at certain age and you have not been touched, maybe you also managed to stay away from a consumption of liquor and drugs (all things you should stay away from).

As different as we can be to one another, we are all here for a reason, we are important and unique to the one that created us and our loved ones and we have something special to offer(contribute) to this world. Whether our contribution can be seen and loved by many or by a few but we are here to make a difference. Have you ever wondered what the world will be like if we had lived in a perfect world where we all looked alike, do and say things that are expected. Maybe that will happen in the future when human life has been destroyed and robots and machinery have taken over the world. With what I have learned in my own life, the things that makes me different and maybe boring including the things I have been(still) teased about, they are the thing that have saved my life, made me who I am today-whatever that maybe. Another thing is that those who are insecure about their own lives or capabilities usually find it easy to pique on someone else’s weakness or make fun of someone else's difference, so they can shine.

We need to learn to appreciate who we are and believe in the purpose that brought us here even if we still do not know our major (things we are good at).Because above all what we might have received from our parents and their teachings. We choose to learn from what is around us. We choose to do anything’s we get involved with. The standard and values we live by. And these are the things that will widely contribute to our existence, what you stand for and believe in. Love and value yourself regardless of what anyone else thinks. Those who have hurt or caused you harm, you can choose to forgive or just ignore them and keep a positive mind set, do your thing and just be you.

Dedicated to you and the teenagers of the world.

With lots of Love

xoxo

MissMadokaKaname: I was impressed and moved by this work. The characterization and dialog were strong, and really brought everyone in the story to life. Also, the setting was handled in a believable and compelling way. The story captured the complexities and pain of love, and also the harshness of living in such b...

Dimplz: Severitus stories (Snape is Harry's Father/Guardian/Mentor) are a staple in the fandom and the quality of these stories vary wildly.. This was an absolute gem to read. The characters were excellently written and the story was very heartfelt.

Lacey Schmidt: The Trouble with Super is that you can't stop reading it. Mr. Barrett's characters are all to easy to relate to even if you don't have a super quirk of your own, and their plight is both heart-rendingly funny and heart-warmingly sad at the same time. It's a bit like Office Space meets the Matri...

Meri Amber: The plot is creative, fun and addictive! The writing is superb and the characters are really well put together. Definitely highly recommeded!

Bboyjoon: A brilliant but unsettling story about 5 murders committed by a serial killer. This novel scared me a little bit and I have to commend you for being able to do that. I wanted to know if you’ve actually met a serial killer before. I mean the way you’ve described the mind of a psychopath is extreme...

ArgyrisMetaxas: Thrilling story which builds layer ontop of layer. A few mis spellings every few chapters. What I found special was that it took a modern day problem and took it to its logical conclusion and plays this realism with gritting precision. I'm always on edge ready to shout from adrenaline. This is gr...

Animeviewer: It is one of the best stories I've ever read. This story will have you riding a roller coaster of emotions and nearly dying to know what happens next.You will get very attached to the characters and in my case I relate well with some of their very traumatic or emotional experiences, Just Juliet f...

Bella_Lee_Taylor: the plot of the story is good and I can't wait to read the second book, but you need to check your grammar because as I was reading there were were important parts of the story some of the spelling and grammar were out of place and the way you you worded things can be better but I can see that th...

Deidre L. Swain: I understood where the story was going but the writing skills were lacking a lot. There are some places that had no flow. The plot was good which is what kept me reading the whole story. I think the author shows promise. They just need to tighten up on their skills to really get it going

dd1226: I love reading about other countries and I think this story about Cambodia after Polpot creates awareness of the tragedy that happened there and the actions of the U.N. to hold elections. The heroine of the story is easy to relate to, a modern, middleaged woman looking for an adventure, wanting t...

Silver: Its a very good story you have here. Felicity´s ability is interesting and original, I love it. The setting of a hostpital was a good choice, especially since we get the scene with the other interns, gives it a very real feel. There wasnt much plot for me to rate, so I´ll update as the story prog...

Omega: In awe of this writer's ability to set a scene, all be it a dark and disturbing one. Feels true to the characters and shows a good understanding of the human psyche. Can recommend, but may touch a nerve if you have suffered abuse.

sujitha nair: What's so distinct about this story was that it could easily be real. Praveena can be your classmate, neighbor or that girl you saw at the coffee shop today. The important decisions she makes and the dilemmas she faces, remind us of our own twisted lives.

mrh: This interesting take on the Harry Potter series fascinated me from line one on. I am in love with this tale and its characters and cannot wait to read the next chapter. I look forward to more soon.When can I expect the next chapter? I am so excited to read it!
