 once upon a time


Living on the outside of inside in life

is daunting and dangerous. On the

inside people accept one another readily.

 the outside one is rarely accepted.


Being outside of the inside comes from, 

considering one different to the norm, 

thou what is normal. The outside person 

may have a physical or mental disability.


This immediately stops the insider from 

knowing and accepting the outsider inside.

In keeping with the so called norms of society 

we shun that which cannot be readily understood.


Thus outside is always left looking inside societal 

norm, no easy answer for the outsider, they are

misunderstood and castigated for being different.

An outsider is never more or less than an insider.
