To be the “Black Sheep” of the family or with your friends, for me, is a compliment!
The Black Sheep, is a person who is not afraid to be who they are, even if they don’t fit in with the rest of the family. Unfortunately, a “black sheep” is looked at as a disgrace, a disappointment, or even worthless. For me, who gave anyone the right to judge someone like this? When you think about it, they probably didn’t even know what was going on with this individual, or perhaps how this individual was struggling to be who they really wanted to be.
This term had such a negative meaning as I was growing up; I decided to change it for myself.
When I was young, I was led to believe, the Black Sheep was someone who you didn’t want to get involved with. Such an old way of thinking! I could never understand why, certain people in my family were labelled a “black sheep”, as I really enjoyed their company.
I suppose, as a “black sheep” myself, now I know why I would lean more towards another fellow “black sheep”. In the 70’s, and being raised an only child (you may want to sit down for this reasoning) was the main reason I was labelled a “black sheep”. Can you believe it? Shallow, I know! One thing people don’t understand, is with an “only child”, it isn’t their choice to be the only one! It is kind of up to their parents, don’t you think?? 😉😉
Over time, I decided to change the meaning of “black sheep” to a positive one.
Black Sheep: Is a person who stands out in the World because they are a Leader! A person who is strong in living their life with happiness and on a Mission to help change the World in a positive way. A Black Sheep is one who is creative in ways, many will not understand. A Black Sheep, strives to not follow in tradition, but instead creates their own. A Black Sheep does not worry about others opinions which are negative towards their beliefs. A Black Sheep, will turn the most negative situation into something beautiful, instead of wallowing in the drama. A Black Sheep will live their life, learning and gaining wisdom, instead of being told how to live their life and how they should learn. A Black Sheep is a person of strength!
I would like to celebrate all who have had this label placed upon them! It isn’t anything negative or bad, it is something you should be proud of! You are being who “you” are meant to be, you are “learning” your own lessons and gaining your “own” wisdom. You may not be a person everyone will understand, but that is the beauty of being yourself, your true “black sheep”; you are you and that is all that matters.
“Black Sheep’s” are unique individuals! They love, they care, they show compassion, they show gratitude, they share with their joy, and they trust, respect, and are loyal! They are colorful individuals 💖😊
With Good Vibes Only – Love A Black Sheep 😊💖
