1. Lots of people think of me as weird
This is why I gave my site this name. There are not many who can relate with me, but those few who can know that they will love me as much as I know that I will love them. I think it is mostly my lifestyle that does not follow the “normal” or common way of living for people my age. I am a woman in my mid thirties in case you are wondering. I will elaborate further in next posts.
2. I think of myself as an Introvert
I am not a social type of person. I like spending time on my own. In fact, I love spending time on my own. I call this time precious. Who else could be a better company for myself than myself? Actually, there was a big period of my life that I had no other choice than to spend it completely on my own and I realized that I am perfectly ok with that.
3. My friends are family
Yes, I have friends and I actually love them. When I decide to spend time with them I do it because I actually want it, not because I don’t want to be alone.I have written another post about how much I appreciate my friendships (https://weirdlifestyle.com/2021/05/15/8-great-quotes-about-friendship-how-they-made-me-appreciate-even-more-the-value-of-friends-in-my-life/ ).
4. Passion for words and literature
I love reading and writing fiction. For many years I used to read all the classics like Dostoyefski, Tolstoy, Dickens etc. It was the last ten years of my life that I started reading Stephen King and I fell in love with his writing. Of course I keep reading other writers but he is and I think he might always be my favourite.
5. Positive no matter what
Even in the worst circumstances I rather focus on the positive side. Even when I am really sad I try really hard to paint a smile on my face. It might not fix anything but it will make me feel a bit better and I know that everything starts on how we feel.
I will end this post with some famous words about being weird which in some way inspired me to start working on this blog.
“I think everybody’s weird. We should all celebrate our individuality and not be embarrassed or ashamed of it.” Johnny Depp
“I never set out to be weird. It was always other people who called me weird.” Frank Zappa
“I am weird, and you know what? That’s OK. So are most interesting people.” Em Bailey, Shift

A fellow introvert with a passion for the written word? High five! Wishing you a great time and embracing your own unique personality, and thanks for sharing!
Hi five Stuart! Thank you for reading and commenting 😊
No problem with being ‘weird’, we’re all unique, we might as well embrace it! I’m a fan of the classics too, particularly the works of Oscar Wilde 🙂
I also love Oscar Wilde just I coun’t mention all the clasics that I love. Thank you for reading and commenting 🙂
As soon as you step away from the norm, you’re different! Raised eyebrow.
Sometimes it takes time, a bit of maturity to sit with and be comfortable with. I’m glad you are there.
thank you for reading and commenting 🙂
Being weird is amazing, who wants to be normal anyway haha. Being ‘weird’ is just being yourself and that’s awesome! Great post!
Exactly Anissa! Thanks for reading me ☺️
I like the Jonny Depp quote – everybody is weird. One suspects that must be true. Those who are normal are merely pretending to be something they’re not. I admire your courage to embrace your own weirdness and put it out into the world E.T. I think if more people embraced their unique character, the world be more interesting and a better place too! 🙏
I also think that! Most people are afraid of being themselves and always try to look and dehave like others. Meanwhile they forget who they are and what they want in life. Thank you for taking time to read and comment 🙂
Yes exactly. People forget who they are. Well said. It was my pleasure E.T. All the best🙏
