OUTFIT: On Being Peculiar

Many people would say that the weekend that's already ending here in Buenos Aires was horrible, but to me there's something particularly beautiful about thunderstorms. They're perfect for staying in, watch a good TV show or, in my case, read a good book. Past Friday I finished reading the second book of the Miss Peregrine trilogy, Hollow City, and right at the ending, on the last page on the last chapter, a passage caught my attention and got me thinking the whole weekend (don't worry, it's NOT a spoiler).


Muchos dirían que el finde que está terminando acá en Buenos Aires fue horrible, pero hay algo particularmente hermoso de los días de tormenta que me encantan. Se prestan para quedarse en casa a mirar una buena serie o, en mi caso, leer un buen libro. El viernes pasado por la noche terminé el segundo libro de la trilogía de Miss Peregrine, Hollow City, y justo al final, en la última página del último capítulo, un pasaje me llamó mucho la atención y me dejó pensando durante todo el fin de semana (no se preocupen, NO es un spoiler).

I felt immediately identified with it, and I'm sure many other people felt the same way too. It's not news that our closest relatives and friends get worried and feel a certain degree of fear when we do something that is not considered by society as normal. I think it's even natural for me, the person who always says she was cut by a different pattern. The new and the different are scary, because they force you to get out of your comfort zone, but that doesn't mean that it's wrong or that we should avoid it.

I would have loved to read a passage like this when I was a teenager. It would have been very useful, but right now I know that instead of explaining people why I am the way I am, I can very well say: "thanks for worrying, but there's nothing wrong about me, I'm just peculiar" ;)

Me sentí inmediatamente identificada, y estoy segura de que muchas personas más también se sintieron de la misma forma. No es novedad que cuando hacemos algo fuera de lo que la sociedad considera normal, nuestros padres, familiares o amigos se preocupen y les genere cierto miedo que estemos haciendo algo mal/estemos yendo por mal camino. Creo que es natural hasta para mí que siempre digo que estoy cortada por un molde diferente. Lo nuevo y diferente generan miedo, porque te obliga a salir de tu zona de confort, pero no por eso significa que este mal o debamos evitarlo.

Me hubiera gustado leer un pasaje así de adolescente. Me hubiera servido para darme cuenta que en vez de ponerme a explicarle a los demás por qué soy como soy, más bien puedo decir: "gracias por tu preocupación, pero no hay nada malo acerca de mí, sólo soy peculiar" ;)
