Comment become Post

This post is a comment that I made on Alienhippy’s post here ->Post<–.  If you will, read her post, then my comment.  It took a lot out of me to write and share this.

_____________________________________

The biggest thing wrong with a lot of people is simply the attitude they take when someone/thing is a bit different than they are.  If this happens, they get nervous; it bothers them and they, usually, respond with anger, violence, shock, denial, or all of the above.

I am a bit different, but most of that is because I was treated with anger, violence, shock, denial, or any or all of the above because I was seen as different.  My biggest difference was simply that I cared about people and things that many others didn’t.  I did not react as a “male” is supposed to.

I am grown now and I understand that how I react now is (was) more passionate, more wonderful, and healthier for me than keeping it bottled up certainly was.  It took a stroke for me and near-death to come to the point of saying, “You all are not right” referring to those who delivered (and some still do) the hate, worry, disgust they were taught to show at people who are loving, kind, and do not quite fit their idea of who I should be.

I try to love everyone.  In that, I succeed; I try to like everyone; in that, I often fail.  Don’t give up; don’t let them hurt you in any way.  You are more like the person I would enjoy being around than many of those so-called “normal” people; I don’t fit there all the time either.  Might be part of the reason I am not married or in a serious relationship.  I think, sometimes, too much.  I can’t let some things go and I know how I will feel if it goes on for a length of time.  It doesn’t work, so I let it go.

I am not alone, as God is always with me, but it would be nice to have others feel as I do and share with me as I would like to share with them.  I don’t worry anymore; I understand that I am, most likely, better off waiting, even if that wait is forever.  I do know how you feel.  I do care about how you feel.  I have been feeling down lately.  Not depression, just that down feeling you can get when you really think things through and it all starts to make sense and that sense is not what you hoped for.

This comment is long enough and important enough that I am going to make it a post and link your post to it.  People need to read and understand and begin to see that “normal” is a wide variation and range and not just a sliver of “perfection”.

In order to fully love and understand, you have to open up and let those others in a bit.  I am talking to those “normal” people who shut the others out.  They, me, need you all to accept just a bit more and be willing to listen and receive our thoughts, words, deeds.

Perhaps, the horrible deeds, the dark things that happen in this world are brought to perfection by God who instills within us words of comfort and solace and shows that we can come together over horrible things and our grief.  Perhaps, it is also to show us that we can start here, but that, eventually, we need this same connection with the good times, and then, with the “normal” times.

To you, Alienhippy, I want to say my heart is with you and I understand “differences” and still want to share with you and Sam and all the others who feels distanced by the ones who want/try to shut us out.  Smile, we are “normal” because all people are unique – we are too.
Namaste,
Scott
