Although Kristina Gallo's short book What does it mean to be a black sheep? is written from a female perspective, it is a book for everyone. Because whether you are a woman or a man, a child or an adult, there will be a time in your life when you will feel—different. When you will seek for your place of belonging and recognition, a safe harbor to be sheltered in.
Whether you are a child or an adult, a male or a female, you hurt equally under the boot of injustice or cuts of sharp tongues or burns of mean looks. You feel abandoned and alone in taking a stand against the world. It is hard to find strength to be who you are, with all your differences and oddness, with your uniqueness which causes you nothing but problems.
In situations like these it is crucial to acknowledge, embrace and accept yourself for who you are. To see beyond the norms of the society, set by imperfect individuals who can be colorblind or deaf to the music of your soul. Even if you lose some of your friends, as in the cases described in Kristina's short book, you will find people worthy of your trust, people who will accept you in their flock despite the black, pink, white or any other color of your personality. I hope and wish Kristina's book helps you with that.
