The curious case of the black sheep!

Have you ever been subjected to raised eyebrows because you did something that the rest of the herd wasn’t doing? Ever felt like you were a bad person for having a thought which isn’t socially acceptable?

We all come equipped with this unique and complicated machine fixed in our skulls that sometimes does things which the other machines aren’t doing. And that makes us the black sheep of the family.

Not only have most of us been a victim of this, but most of us have also been the proponents of such behaviour. What we need to do, both individually and as a group is be more accepting and less judgemental.

In life, there are no absolutes. What is good for one may be bad for another. What may be okay for you may not be okay for another. Each one of us is different and we react differently to the same situations. It doesn’t make us good or bad, it just makes us different human beings.

Learn to accept people for who they are. You may not like it, you may not want to socialize with them, you may not want to be the best of pals with them, but you must not fall prey to the line of thinking which makes you think of them as the black sheep for being different from you.

And when we all practice this, we will realise how much better it is to live in a place where there is no black and white, just rainbows all around!
