I have always been one for doing my own thing. Not to the detriment or harm of others but to do things or participate in things or wear clothes or use certain devices to my own interests not what everyone else was or had. It may have started at a young age when my parents couldn't afford to give me designer label clothes but took the time to love me or maybe it's because I was taught to be myself and to seek answers or ask questions about whatever before participating.
For instance, in my opinion, and mine only and nothing meant toward any products, but why would I want an iPhone or an iPad or expensive Polo shirts, especially since I have had large dogs who love to greet me when I come home, if everyone else has it or is using it. I had to earn the money to pay for computers or cell phones. So if another product did the same quality job or another brand of shirt did the same quality job but wasn't like everyone else's, I tended to choose those.
Unfortunately, I didn't become aware of the blessings of being me and not another clone of everyone else's interests until I was much older. I'm not sure why it took so long to gain confidence. There is a happiness in being yourself especially when you realize that God made me the way I am. Every bit of me. He loves me the way I am. My unique qualities, personalities and interests, all of me.
God loves you. He cares about you. He created you in His Image. I cannot think of anything more magnificent in my entire life. At 56, I can look back through life and see how God has taken care of my needs and worked in life situations for my own good.
God would like to meet you and take care of you too. If you would like to learn more, please visit Peace With God.
