Let it be.

Ever feel awkward being somewhere? As if you didn't belong? Not only do I stand out because of my skin color, hair, and religious beliefs but my lifestyle as well. My views on life probably seem a little strange to those that know me. I read self improvement books, I watch very little TV, I don't eat certain foods and this is nothing new.

I've developed a level of tolerance to those around me in order to become a better person and develop patience(Thank God). Yet there are these situations where I feel like I really just don't belong. Something in my spirit just doesn't feel right. I know this is my God given common sense telling me...Nope Tunisia you don't belong here or Tunisia you should not be in this conversation. I don't believe in trying to change those around me by arguing or debating words won't change a person's mind. However improving my way of life will and how I interact with people by setting an example.

--I pray that the example I set is worthy.

Yay.Glad I'm not the only one who feels that way sometimes.I feel like that especially when we have to 'entertain' hubby's guests at dinner and they're drinking.
