If We’re Different, Let’s Be Different

Everyone is unique

A lizard shared a room with a lady. Her boyfriend was a little jealous of the lizard and tried to get it out, but she stopped him.

The lady in the above story called the lizard in the room her friend, and I was a little confused at first.

I have a deep fear of reptiles. When I went to the zoo as a kid, I never wanted to go to the snake or lizard enclosure.

If I had to, I would walk briskly with my head down so as not to see the crawling creatures in the terrarium.

They look so ugly and scary to me, I can’t imagine having them in my home.

To my amazement, statistics show that approximately 271 thousand reptiles were owned as pets in Canada in 2020, up from around 267 thousand reptiles in 2016.

Why do so many people like lizards?

When I asked this question, I wondered why I wanted to know the answer. Even knowing that, I still don’t like lizards.

Each of us is different from everyone else. We carry different DNA and come from different families.

No wonder, we think differently and each of us must be unique in the world.

Even though I have a twin sister, we are still not the same person. We may look alike, but our personalities and hobbies can be completely different.

Oddly enough, we can’t help but compare ourselves to others and view them critically all the time.

What’s even stranger is that we were all given the same dream when we were young:

Go to a good college, get a nice job, live in a mansion, and drive a fancy car.

Does it have to be like this?

Such a dream is not necessarily suitable for everyone, and it may not be what everyone wants.

Let’s be just different!

You like lizards, I don’t. It’s okay, we are free to choose, that’s the beauty of life.

The world would be a better place if we accepted that everyone is different and that we are different from others.
