Be the unique you

We’re writing the year 2018 and we still don’t get that we are all alike. We are all just expressing ourselves in the ways we find is possible for us. For far too many people that still means you’re different if you don’t express your self like “normal” people. I don’t get it. The most boring thing there is, is when people act like expected and like most people. The most interesting thing is when people break patterns and do the unexpected and expose their uniqueness in good ways.

That’s when the magic happens.

In Sweden we have a chance to see some of the unexpected acting dare to be unique people in a tv show called Lerins lärljungar (Lerins pupils).

Might not be available for those of you who read this outside of Sweden. Your country tv stations should buy this show from Swedish television.

The famous Swedish aquarelle painter Lars Lerin having an art school for aspies, autistics, Down’s syndromes and some others with special talents.
It’s lovely to see these creative people with warm hearts big as universe and very clever minds. We should learn a lot from them and the world would be a much nicer world for all of us.

They show what happens when we let people to be what they are and let them express themselves in they way that suits them. So far we have been able to watch four episodes and it’s amazing to see goodness in people. It’s so inspiring.

In the blogsphere we also find this kind and wise people, that I always learn a lot from. For example at aspiblog and The silent wave.

What I wanna say is that we should stop putting labels on people and try to force expressing rules on them and ourselves. We all need to feel we can express ourselves in ways that’s suits us without being questioned all the time. There’s no right or wrong in the way of how to create and be the unique you.

Is it possible for us to accept the challenge – to accept people for what they are and allow all to be the unique person everyone already is?

I say yes – it is possible!


Feel free to use this piece of art if you join the challenge 🙂

  1. Delightful read! 👏🏼. I agree; I would much rather be free to be natural around others and vice versa as well; when getting to know someone or otherwise interacting with someone, I would prefer to deal with the Real Them, not some contrived or superficial version of them that they may assume I want to see 😊. Thank you so much for the mention, too! 💓🌟
