Do you think you’re weird, but maybe you’re not happy or completely comfortable with that weirdness? Perhaps you look down on yourself for being different?
If so, I’m hoping my list of things that probably qualify me as ‘weird’ will make you feel better. We all have our oddities and quirks. Rather than hide them or be ashamed by them, we should embrace our weird and have a good laugh (or several).
Sooo, without further ado, here are 8 things that make me wonderfully weird (or at least funny weird, I hope).
My List of Weird
- I clean my ears at least once a day, usually twice.
- I put lotion on my hands at least 20 times a day, usually 30.
- I talk to dead people and they talk to me. I’m a medium.
- I smell my socks after I wear them. Seriously, I do. My dad used to do the same thing.
- I’m more afraid of bees than I am of dying.
- I pluck hairs off my chest and shave my big toes.
- Presenting to a room of 1,000 people I don’t know is much more calming to me than having lunch with a single person I don’t know.
- I use a GPS to get everywhere. And I mean everywhere, like two streets away to somewhere I go like 5 times a week (Aaron’s school, for instance). That’s how poor my sense of direction is.
Did I make you feel less alone or at least make you chuckle? Good! Now, go out there and pick your nose and shower with your bathing suit on or color your leg hair purple and wear the t-shirt you’ve never washed because it’s ‘good luck’. Don’t think twice about that weirdness and if you do think about it, be proud and have a good laugh.

PS – Here’s an affirmation to help you love your weird and wave your freak flag, My uniqueness is beautiful and worth celebrating.
PPS – Are you looking for more ways to get comfortable with your weird? If so, here’s a journal prompt: Think of three people you love being around that you spend a lot of time with (this activity works especially well if you live them). List out all the things that ‘make them weird’. Now reflect on that list. Do you love them less because they clean the dishes before they put them in the dishwasher? Do you think less of them because they rearrange the medicine cabinet by color? Of course not! So now ask yourself why you don’t judge others, but you judge yourself.
