Because we are human we want to ‘fit in’ but sometimes fitting in doesn’t feel right. I know as a kid, I didn’t like playing the ‘girl’ games at recess. I liked what the boys were doing… football, basketball, soccer or baseball.
Everyone tried to ‘make’ me do the girl things but those didn’t feel right to me so I ‘walked’ in different shoes and played with the boys. To this day I don’t regret it. I had a fun childhood doing what I liked to do.
Sometimes I pretend to be normal but mostly I walk in my own shoes! ; )
