I believe that many of you have heard this expression before: birds of a feather flock together. So today, I bring to “ouso escrever” one of the ideas that I have defended my entire life, the benefits of not belonging, or the pleasure of being the black sheep.
Although I know, we all have this inner call, to belong somewhere. Being the black sheep isn’t necessarily a bad thing, being the black sheep means, you keep your voice and individuality.
Being the “black sheep” means you don’t sell yourself away based on what you hear and what people try to sell you into it. You keep your voice, your standards, and your individuality.
Don’t be ashamed of who you are, instead teach folks around you how to be themselves.
