It’s Okay

Published by Rodrick Bates on


It’s okay to live outside of what the world knows as normality. It’s okay to grow and create your own reality. It’s okay to be different. It’s okay if they won’t listen. It’s okay if they don’t pay attention, and it’s okay to be yourself without permission. If you’re anything short of yourself, then you’re not truly giving yourself the opportunity to live the life that you were given. It’s okay if you don’t fit in. When an object pierces our skin, we all bleed the same from within. It’s okay if you’re shorter. It’s okay if you’re taller. It’s okay if you’re bigger, and it’s okay if you’re smaller. It’s okay if your skin is lighter or darker. It’s okay if your orientation is opposite of theirs. It’s okay if you walk differently than they do. It’s okay if you talk differently than they do. It’s okay, because the same person who created them created you too. No matter how you look, no matter what you like, and no matter what you do, someone will have something to say, but I promise you… It’s okay.
