My grandmother used to say,
“When in the land of the one-eyed Giant, close one eye.”
Some of us are a little slow in learning this and other lessons, but we would do right by ourselves to listen to those who came before us. Anytime we went against the grain of what our predecessors taught us, nothing good came of it. In fact, oftentimes we learned why they said, what they said. To this, I propose we Close One Eye.
Use that how you need, but in short, rarely has anyone shown long lived appreciation for one’s difference. In fact, it’s proven to more so be a reason they ostracize.
