The "Lonely" of Unique
I think everybody gets lonely sometimes. I don't know if people can ever understand how you can be in a room full of people and be lonely sometimes. ~Trey Songz
As passionately as I believe in the power of Unique, I have to admit one thing: the journey to finding your Unique is lonely.
Forging your own path and embracing your Uniqueness will cause some people to reject you. In our culture, we talk a lot about the value of diversity and how great it is to celebrate "difference." But in reality, from the time we are children, our society is constantly seeking to impose "standards" on us. I want to know who came up with those standards anyway?
Then enter the age of techno-gadgets and internet connections. We have taken to social media to connect and express ourselves. But we do all of our "connection" alone - connected to a laptop, iPad, or cell phone.
According to recent research, people see 10,000 ideas, proposals, emails, social status posts, etc. per DAY. Well, that is enough to keep you busy! But in all of that "busyness," we have lost track of real connection AND exchanged our identity for the sake of being "heard" and "seen."
The journey to finding your Unique is a narrow pathway AWAY from all of this noise. It is lonely.
sad because one has no friends or company.
without companions; solitary.
If you are feeling or have felt lonely, I have good news. You are close to a breakthrough!
The breakthrough that I am talking about is discovering the power of Your Unique.
Discovering the power of Your Unique is about stepping fully into who you were originally designed to be. You step out of other people's opinion, society's expectations, and family traditions. You step into your unique talents, gifts, and abilities. You ignore criticism and negative self-talk. You embrace your positive qualities and intuition.
What I am trying to say is this: the loneliest place for Your Unique is in the space where you are NOT living Your Unique.
What I found out is that living inside of my DIFFERENCE brought me fully into the experience of my best life. When I started authentically living my Unique, I began attracting the people and experiences that embraced and accepted me. I was no longer trapped by who I had to be (or who I thought I had to be).
The ugly part of this journey was pulling away from those people and experiences that were keeping me a slave to a person I didn't want to be. For a time, I was lonely. I felt alone. But through perseverance and introspection, I slowly began to discover the gifts that I had so long denied, kept "under wraps," discarded, and minimized.
Today, I want to encourage you to begin this journey. And I want to be there to support you and cheer you on to Discovering Your Unique and your BEST LIFE EVER.
