This is a picture from a page on the Westcott College Cambridge Site. As I looked at it I began to realise how 'alien' our 'rituals' must be to onlookers. I began to recognise that actually people may well not look at us a laugh anymore that we are partaking in these strange rituals. I think now they are so alien people look on in as much interest or disinterest as they would if Hindu's or some other faith were performing a ritual in public, i.e Diwali.
It did make me think about how our children feel.
Kids struggle with being different. This is something many kids have to face and recognise eventually that we are all different. It is impossible to 'fit in' unless those you are with accept you for YOU.
My thoughts this morning are on how we can enable our kids to be strong in themselves and know that people look on at them to discover who they are so it is best to discover just that.
So how can you discover who you are?
join clubs that do things you are interested in
Enjoy the company of friends who really do accept you and all the strange things you think and do!!
Talk to parents and people who live with you and want the best for you.
Think. Using your brain to consider all sorts of things helps you to grow and learn more about all that you can do.
I am sure that there are more and hope to get others from friends who may have suggestions.
