As normal as you may think you are daily, to the outside world, there is at least one thing that you say or do that is considered to be eerie or weird.

Today’s inspiration is all about your eerie self. We will take a look at the following:

Being eerie is not necessarily bad thing as long as you know how to deal with the things that make you that way. Here are a few ways you can deal with what makes you eerie:

  1. Acknowledge what makes you eerie.

    • Make a list and recognize all that makes you different from everyone else.
  2. Do research on the things that makes you eerie.
    • From your list of things that makes you eerie, it is time for you do research to understand why you like them and why people find them eerie.
    • You can do this through asking people and doing your own research online or in a library.
  3. Make a decision to keep or surrender what makes you eerie.
    • After doing your research on the things that make you eerie, you got to make a choice to either keep them or lose them.

  4. Be yourself regardless.

    • Just be yourself and love who you are!

I encourage you to take the time to look at the things that make eerie in front of other people. Being eerie is something that you cannot run from because it is apart of who are. Let’s remember that no matter how normal you are to yourself, you will always be considered to be eerie to someone else.
