In my family, I’m known as the “quirky one,” or, sometimes, the “weird one.” Honestly, I don’t know why they see me that way, and for years, I hated it, even if they meant it with all the love in the world.
Until I realized something – being weird meant that I was different, and it was up to me to see it in a good or bad light.
