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

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...

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...

Christopher Calvo: Truly a wonderful read and very well written! Love the characters and character development, and can smell the frybread as I read it! Can't wait for more as we delve into the Buffalo Summer.

ank1983: I really enjoyed this story and I read through it quickly. I found it very entertaining and some of your scenes were very well written and descriptive. Every time a chapter ended I couldn't wait to start the next chapter. What girl hasn't fantasized over a cute teacher at school?! The story did...

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!

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...

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.

mariamalkorashy: Simply alluring, I have become addicted. Now the rest of this message is simply words because it notified me saying that my Review was to short haha. It has done it again so yup I am still here writing once more haha.

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 ...

farziex3: I think this novel is perfect because it had erotic, romance, and towards the end was a twist so I was just on the edge of my seat reading this book. It was honestly really amazing.
