I once had an anonymous evaluation completed on me and it went something like this.  “I don’t understand why someone “like Sami” who seems to love her job, loves to laugh and have fun, and works very hard, is not respected by any of her colleagues.”
I never set out to be weird. It was always the other people who called me weird. ~~Frank Zappa
family
At first I was a bit taken aback.  As anyone would be. What me?  Not respected?  I mean I sort of got it, but also wondered why my hard work was not very noticed. I tried changing my clothes, my attitude, my hair, my mind, my presentation, my everything about me that made me… well, me.

Over time, I have come to realize that no matter how much I change, I will always be essentially me.  I have long realized that this fact is something that will not please a lot of people or get me promoted.  I will never rise to the top of the pile.  I was sad for a minute.  I was frustrated for two minutes.  It took me several decades to understand this issue.
“Your importance can’t be measured by the normal things
that many others
achieved in their lives diplomas, job money… but by
the things they cannot ,
all the impossible dreams and hard getting goals which
often called the crazy thoughts can create the true meaning of
importance insanity always lead to miracles.”

Now at 55, I realize how much time I wasted trying to be what I was never going to be able to be.  How much energy it took to try to change what I personally consider to be the best part of me.
“The pig was always there staring at me, as I took off my clothes, I wondered if he could be turned on by me. We live in such a crazy world, where people find themselves in the wrong body and they seek permanent change, I wonder if one day a pig woke up and realised he is in the wrong body. I think I was going crazy, I had a lot of thoughts and no one to talk to.”
~~ Lunga Noélia Izata 
Essentially, I am awkward, upbeat, zany, madcap, offbeat, outlandish, and absurd.  I have made friends, family, and strangers laugh.  Yes, I get a lot of eye rolls as well.  I drive my bosses crazy and many folks think I am just plain nuts.  I am no longer trying to deny or cover this up.  The advantage of being older and wiser, is you can melt down all that garbage and understand that us crazies are often healthier and more clear-headed than the “normal” ones.  Further, the normals are often just as crazy if not more so.  We are likely just more aware of it and able to go with the flow.
“Do you know what’s cheaper than therapy? Admitting you’re batshit crazy and running with it.”  ~~ Dan Pearce
“You look like a crazy person,” Adri said.
“You look boring and average,” Lily replied.”
~~ Jodi Lynn Anderson
“We must thank to the crazy people
because by looking
at their achievements
or the failures, we can decide whether we have to
inject some craziness
to our own lives or not!”
~~Mehmet Murat ildan
Al final puede que la sociedad entera no sea más que una especie de congregación de lunáticos, formado por miles de chalados cada uno”
~~ Natsume Sōseki
