People are horrible.

It was just brought to my attention that a person that I hold very near and dear was told a very hurtful thing recently. It’s sometimes the little things that hurt the most. I don’t really know how she felt about this, since I’ve had minimal contact with her as of late but this struck me; it hit a nerve if you will. She posted on my site that a member of her family had said that they wish she was “different.” The girl I’m referring to is easily one of the most talented people I’ve ever seen. She’s not “of the norm” by any stretch. She’s a kind, caring, lovable, sweet girl with a head on her shoulders. She’s brilliant. I can’t understand why anyone could possibly want to repress this girl. She’s going places in her life. Not only is she going to be something great someday, she already is something great, and the simple thought that anyone would want her to be any different at all appalls me.

Yep, people sure suck.
