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

Michael Hogan: If anyone would advise Lindsey Martin-Bower not to mix religion and politics, she would probably tell them to take a hike. This rollicking novella does just that. It considers the case of Yung Sung Gonne and his Universality Church and two young women trying to bring it down. Frustrated by the ru...

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

FreakyPoet: I found this story well written and extremely cute. I like how the emotional roller coaster, otherwise know as love, was done here. it was very believable that these two characters would deny, agonize, then come to except their feelings the way that they did. I enjoyed it very much, thank you ...

RodRaglin: Your writing is very good, Rachel, but remember you also have to entertain the reader and in that regard it's a bit sparse in action and dialogue.Consider when revising...When starting a new story always consider your protagonist's Goal - what they want; Motivation - why they want it; and, Confli...

alexawalsh96: Omg I hate reading yet I haven't put the book down yet! I'm on chapter 16 and can't stop my poor eyes are screaming cause I'm not used to reading this much!! I haven't finished reading it and want a hard copy!! Best book ever!

wildweeder: I found the story "The Last Starry Night" to be exciting and entertaining (and a little bit scary in parts). I loved the way the young people explained things to each other.The growth and development of the young Warriors that Johnny adopted was fun. Listening to Grandma talk to them in "wisdom s...

Cody Kluesner: When I first started reading I thought it would be good read and after the first few chapters I was hooked. One Mister Morgan Leger has a created a world with characters that draws you in. This is a story that will spark your imagination and pull on your heart. I promise that giving this a read w...

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.

bhodges11: I like the concept of the story, but there were things that I felt could use more detail. I like the back stories created, but was left wanting more from parts of the story. I like the cadence of the author's writing style - it was a very easy, enjoyable read. I felt like it ended on, not a cliff...
