Editor’s note

I have found many times in society that we are forced into being a person that we are not. Why do this? If we are all the same, imagine how boring life becomes. I am sure that it stems from school days, where if you do not conform to a certain way then bullying is ensued. This most definitely does not stop when you finish school. Talking behind someone’s back or giving a “positive criticism” can make a person feel oppressed.

If you have children, encourage them to be one of a kind and not let “bullies” get them down. If you don’t have children, then encourage yourself. No one deserves to feel inadequate. – Sarah
