The Others Are Out There

“Admit it. You aren’t like them. You’re not even close. You may occasionally dress yourself up as one of them, watch the same mindless television shows as they do, maybe even eat the same fast food sometimes. But it seems that the more you try to fit in, the more you feel like an outsider, watching the “normal people” as they go about their automatic existences. For every time you say club passwords like “Have a nice day” and “Weather’s awful today, eh?”, you yearn inside to say forbidden things like “Tell me something that makes you cry” or “What do you think deja vu is for?” Face it, you even want to talk to that girl in the elevator. But what if that girl in the elevator (and the balding man who walks past your cubicle at work) are thinking the same thing? Who knows what you might learn from taking a chance on conversation with a stranger? Everyone carries a piece of the puzzle. Nobody comes into your life by mere coincidence. Trust your instincts. Do the unexpected. Find the others…” -Timothy Leary

Each person has a place where they look and feel beautiful. Our job is to find that place (or create that place) and make it our home.

Unfortunately, most of us just waste away our lives hanging out in popular places or politically correct places while we struggle desperately to convince the people around us that if they only looked at us from the correct angle, they would see that we really are beautiful. But beauty can’t be argued. Either it is seen or it is not seen.

If the subject of your beauty is frequently treated like a topic of controversy and contention, then you’re probably in the wrong place.

Timothy Leary advised us to “find the others.”

Who are the others?

The ones who don’t need syllogisms and soliloquies to see your beauty.
