I personally love music-all sorts. I was listening to a beautiful orchestra a while ago and a thought occurred to me that I would like to share with you.
Imagine our individual selves as a unique part of a huge symphony that is playing a beautiful harmonious musical masterpiece.
We each have equal importance to contribute to the music, yet we each have a unique key or note that we must play in order for harmony to exist.
The way I relate this is that each of us has a unique expression that is needed in the world.
Spending the time to discover this and allowing this truest expression is one of the greatest actions we can take for the good of everyone. It can help us feel vital, purposeful, happy and truly connected.
Don’t be afraid to learn and embrace your uniqueness.
Here are 8 important steps to accepting your uniqueness:
- Accept who you are. It’s difficult to be different if you refuse to accept your identity.
- Everyone has a story to tell, listen to them and find your own.
- Stop trying to compromise on who you are.
- Find your crowd and people with similar interests.
- Embrace your talents and skills and accept them for what they are.
- Embrace your beliefs and don’t change them to fit other’s views.
- Spend time doing what you love and not just what you have to do.
- Accept criticism and encompass it into your life.
Why is uniqueness important?
Individuals are different from each other. They have special worth in their society because they are different. They can make contributions that help others and develop things that make it into a society. This is because they are different.
If we are all the same, there would be no difference between us. If everyone wore blue jeans and T-shirts all the time, that would not help society evolve. We need to develop a sense of our own identity and still feel good about who we are as individual members of society.
Variety is the spice of life, as the expression all around the world goes. And where would the world be without varieties of colors, people and cultures in it?
We need people to do many things for society and development such as originate new ideas, develop those ideas into practical applications that everyone can use. If we were all the same, no one would have any original thoughts because they were all influenced by others who came before.
Does being unique help you attract what you want?
When you are in a state of uniqueness, you are allowing your soul to express itself. You allow others to see a little bit of what makes up your soul. And when people see this, they want more and want to be a part of it. They feel like they can learn from you because you have something unique that they don’t have.
This uniqueness can be a source of attraction that is magnetic to others who are also unique themselves. You may attract people who have the same purpose as you in life, so they can work together towards something greater than they could do by themselves.
Being unique makes it easier for you to stand out from the crowd and show your true self. You can feel good about yourself because you know what it is that makes you unique and embrace this.
Once the uniqueness is embraced, other people are drawn to it and want to be part of it. This allows you to attract people who will contribute positively to your life and help in your goals.
How do you show your uniqueness?
There are many ways that you can show your uniqueness. What makes you unique may be different to someone else. You must find out what it is about yourself that makes you unique.
Ask yourself some questions:
- What is my favorite activity to do? Why does this bring me joy?
- Who are the people that I love spending time with?
- What makes me feel good about myself and what do I like about my appearance?
- My special talents, what are they and how can I use them to help others?
I am unique because…
You may come up with other things that make you unique. By taking a closer look at yourself, you come up with more things that define you and your uniqueness.
When you embrace your own individuality, it can help you have better self-esteem. You know who you are and what makes up that identity. This also helps to develop confidence in the ability to accomplish goals that bring about happiness and positive outcomes in life.
You learn to love being unique because it helps you develop your own identity. It allows you to express yourself and feel good about the contributions that you make to others’ lives.
You learn to be happy with who you are as a person because it is natural for everyone to be unique in their own way. You don’t have to like what other people do, but they should be able to do it without judgment.
It will be easier for you to contribute to a society if you are comfortable with who you are and embrace the uniqueness that makes up your being. It takes courage to have such an individuality, but once you embrace it, others will appreciate everything that makes up this unique personality.
