Hey guys! I finally decided to give Write or Die Wednesdays a try! Thank you Vashelle & Mia for hosting this fun link-up!
This week’s prompt: Scientist say no two snowflakes are alike. What makes you unique?
Just like what Mia said, it’s also difficult for me to put into words what makes me unique. However, I thought I’d give it a shot.
Growing up, I knew I was different from others. Especially, from all of my friends. Sure we had similarities in things we were interested in, but my upbringing was way different. I grew up with 2 moms. My mom is a lesbian, and always had a partner as long I could remember. But, the most interesting part of it all is, my mom never had to come out and tell me. It’s as if I already knew the day I was born. Of course it’s impossible to just “know” when you are infant, but to me, it felt like it was and still is normal to have 2 moms. Most people had a mom and a dad, and that was their norm. Their parents never had to tell them, “hey, I am with your dad/mom”, and neither did my mom, and that is totally okay with me. I would not have it any other way.
To me, that makes me unique because I feel like that made me a very open-minded and compassionate person. I am open-minded to giving people a shot or a second-chance. However, giving them a third-chance is a different story. But, I really hate giving up on people, especially those I love, or even cared about. Whenever someone I know runs to me for advice, and I’ve probably told them the same thing nearly 50 times, I will still go on and tell them again for the 51st time. I’m not so so sure if I’m giving the best advice, but I will find ways to make that person feel good and smile again. So, I think that’s what makes me who I am.
Danica is unique because she is an open-minded individual who will not give up on helping, caring, or loving you, even if you feel like you’ve given up on yourself.
What about you? What makes you, you?
