Self Owned.

Wednesday, September 05, 2012

Just a pre-bed ponder post for those who'd like to hear my thoughts.
Keep your penny, I'm feeling generous. 

"The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe.

If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened.

But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself."

-Friedrich Nietzsche.

I was the nail that stuck out like a sore thumb in a sea of white sheep, black. 
So of course, growing up was hard because people often punish the different as 
we scare them with our unfamiliar possibilities.
But always remember, you can always go out into the world and find your own;
Today, tomorrow, any fine day.
Maybe to even realize, being alone suits you better.

We can only be who we are before turning into who we want to be.
It took me a while and many windy roads to find that center in which I can project myself the way I want to be seen, as the person I am, be it different or normal, depending on your eyes, really.
And also the people who aren't so afraid of my unfamiliar potential that they need to put me down or 'convert' me.
I promise, No sacrifice made was too much to be able to read this Nietzsche quote and know for certain in all uncertainty;

I belong to myself.
I own me.

Goodnight, fellow freaks :)
