Idiosyncrasy

Idiosyncrasy - A structural or behavioral characteristic peculiar to an individual or group.

We are all idiosyncratic in a way. We all have characteristics or mannerisms that seems normal to us but appears peculiar to other people. 

     Nowadays, we tend to disregard people who has noticeable characteristics that are different from the majority. Instead of accepting each other's differences, it seems like there is a society based standard that dictates what's beautiful and what's not, what's in and what's out. I believe it is the reason why people tend to fit in, setting aside their true selves and prioritizing what the society wants to see. We feel like there is a need for us to belong, because the fear of being alone, of being the "odd one out" exists.

     If only our eyes wouldn't just do all the work, if only we aren't that judgmental. Yes, "we" because I myself is guilty of this and as much as I want to take all the judgmental words that I have said, I couldn't, and as much as I wanted to avoid being judged as well, I just couldn't. In fact, no one could. If only we could see the beauty in everything, just like how God sees things. His love is never ending, no matter how different other people say we are, no matter how "odd" and "weird" other people think we may be, He will lift us up, He will look at us with great love in a way so special that we are not just touched, but changed.
