Sweet story of the day
OK, call me a sap, but this story about the world's tallest man is truly heart-warming.
Haven't we all, at some point or another, felt like we didn't fit in, or didn't belong? My mother told me that when she was in elementary school, she seriously thought maybe she was from another planet! That, she reasoned, would explain why she didn't fit with the rest of her family...
When I was in college I told a friend that I felt like I was nobody's kind of girl. "Of course you are!" she said. "It's just that none of them can have you."
That felt like a million bucks...compared to a friend who said, a few years later, that maybe I "wasn't meant to be with any one person romantically, but just a really good friend to a lot of people." Ouch.
He was wrong, obviously, and his wife still hasn't figured out that he's gay!
I still have people comment that I'm "out there," "something else," or a bit different, but you know what? I'm happy about that now. I don't see myself as weird, but why be dull?
Anyway...I thought it was sweet that people all over the world have come out to befriend this man in the Ukraine, who is now hoping to meet his soulmate.
Good luck, sweetie!
