Chameleon

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERADo you know someone who really works hard at being someone else?

We all do.
Maybe it’s me.
Maybe it’s you.

I have been that person.

When I was in high school I sometimes felt desperate for friends. When I was included – even for a moment – I would try to blend in.

One night I had a guy tell me, “you’re like a chameleon.”

It was true.
I tried to fit in.
I would even try to talk and act like others.

The truth is, I seldom was really accepted.
Not by them.
And not by me.

Battle For Self-Acceptance

The struggle for acceptance is one we all face in different ways at different times.
– In the classroom
– In our home
– In our workplace
– In our friendships
– In our own mind

My friend Kelly loves the band Evanescence. Yesterday she introduced us to an insightful song by them about the about battle for self-acceptance.

Give Evanescence’s song “What You Want” a listen.

Ask yourself, “What line stands out?”
Think deeper, what about that line stands out?
Where in your life does that line fit?

If you’re feeling brave, share your thoughts below.
More tomorrow.
