You know who you are. You’re special. Admit it. Otherwise so many books, movies, graphic novels, and so much study would never go on about you.
You are in a minority. You are unforgettable. You often manage to get our attention, at least briefly.
You are also not in charge.
You don’t rule the world.
There’s one of you (at least) on every block.
A bigger, more powerful version of you (perhaps only in your mind) helped create you.
You have choices. Mine is to keep showing up. Keep saying ‘Hello!,’ making eye contact, walking, working, trying to make the world a better place. One day at a time. One step at a time.
I am not going to avoid you. Nor will I even be able to try. In spite of your minority status, you do some travel, you do manage to spread out. High exposure is your game. Rock on. One day perhaps you’ll be famous, if you are not already.
We are still here. We are the majority. We are not the canvas on which you get to paint. Deal with it.
