Standing out from the crowd is difficult. How do you stand out from a crowd? Other than running naked down the street flailing your arms, of course. Don’t try that by the way, the results are never good. In theory it’s all about being yourself, but in a crowd of people trying to stand out I don’t know if anyone can ever really do it. With everyone trying to feel special in our society by seeking that recognition of being the “most” at something, I wonder if it’s ever really possible to achieve it. I don’t know. Maybe I’m in the crowd so I just can’t see the way, or maybe I’m off to the side standing apart but not out, that I just don’t get it. But I don’t.
I can’t help but wonder about that line from Hope Floats, “I’m just not special, and that’s okay.” Maybe not everyone is meant to be special, and maybe that’s okay.
Maybe just being happy is enough.
Ugh, ever have those days where you could just get your pretentious brain to be quite?
