In one of the Charlie Brown cartoons,
”Nobody likes me.
Nobody REALLY likes me.”
”I know how you feel, Charlie Brown.
You don’t want pity.
All you want is a little understanding.”
”On the contrary,
I’ll take all the pity I can get.”
One thing about Charlie Brown,
he’s honest about his thoughts and feelings.
There are no facades,no attempts to look good,
no efforts to impress others.
He openly expresses what he thinks and feels,
and his desire to be liked and appreciated.
Charlies Brown is always Charlie Brown.
He is who he is—
imperfect, flawed, rather quirky,
at times weird, frequently frustrated,
yet oh so loveable.
The whole world loves Charlie Brown
they can identify with him.
They’ve been there. They understand.
They know where he’s coming from.
When they look at Charlie Brown,
they see themselves.
The see their own flaws, fears, frustrations,
and like Charlie Brown,
they sometimes feel like nobody likes them.
However, if we strip everything down,
and stop trying to be something we’re not,
we’ll see that, like Charlie Brown,
we are a unique ORIGINAL.
And here’s the Good News.
Everyone loves an ORIGINAL.
It’s worth much more than a copy.
People want the ORIGINAL.
SO BE YOURSELF.
After all, everyone else is taken.
Join the Charlie Brown Club.
The whole world is waiting to love you.
