Prosaic soliloquies performed by a quixotic person

Am I Unique?

leave a comment »

‘You are a unique person,’ I heard someone told me some while back. As a response, I inwardly puffed my chest out and burst my buttons with pride (well, what can I say, it was a reflexive reaction--I just couldn’t help but to feel good, although on a normal day, getting compliments is an embarrassing and awkward moment for me).

But thinking about it again now, while I knew the person meant it well, I’m not entirely sure whether to consider that as a compliment or otherwise. Please don’t get me wrong. Unique is a special and amazing adjective. Especially when it’s directed at you. Because it demonstrates your individuality (thanks to your having great and not-so-great qualities that no one else in this world has) and thus, proves that you’re not a part of the monotonous-and-regular-like-a-clock bunch of Homo sapiens.

However, if truth be told, am I truly unique when everybody else is too?
