Not a news article but something I wrote.
What do you think?


We spend our lives, trying to fit in, but we will always be

Too fat, too thin, too odd, to fit in.
Too bright, too dim, too nice, to fit in.
Too shy, too bold, too old, to fit in.
Too poor, too greedy, too needy, to fit in.
So give more...a little more...give your blood...give your love...give away your precious time to fit in, give everything you have,

But you will never have enough, to fit in.


So don’t fight to fit in.

You
Are
Enough.

I think I still need to lose a out 10-15 pounds, but I like your sentiments.

But, in reality, I was watching that story that Ben did on the homeless in Ft Worth, since I started that thread about the homeless in California (There's no comparison, but I made that point several times. Can't help the willfully ignorant). After watching it, I surfed around Facebook a bit.

Sometimes. I mean you're no Dave Chappelle. But you have a good sense of humor at times.

Its good and interesting, but and here is the big but.
Is not presenting a view to speak words of wisdom to inspire. Also trying to fit in also?
To be seen like others who have done the same and to inspire others?

What would be more telling here is whether people consciously or unconsciously try to fit in?

By the by Eddie and hats off to you. Just posted this for someone feeling blue on twitter. (Hope you do not mind and stated it was by someone I know)

They litterally felt better about themselves from this. It helped lift them up.

So well done
