How would you like to eat only vanilla icecream for the rest of your life? Or wear only black clothes? Or live in a world without seasons and weather variations? Or have only one TV channel to watch, one store to shop in, one type of music to listen to?
All of us crave variation. So why are we so afraid of diversity among ourselves? Why has our world become so narrow? Why do our young girls want to look like Barbie? Why are we afraid to stand out as different, to have personal tastes that our friends don’t share, to walk our own path, to be unique? Why are we becoming homogenised?
I say, applaud diversity. The world would be dull to death if we all looked alike, thought alike, and acted alike. Be eclectic. Be unique. Be you. There is only one you. Don’t try to squeeze yourself into someone else’s mould. You are just the way you are because the world needs diversity. Represent. Be proud to be you.
There is only one you. Make sure you count.
