- Concrete Examples
If you’ve ever felt like you don’t fit in, Atlantic magazine writer Olga Khazan has some people for you to meet. As a Russian-Jewish immigrant raised in rural West Texas, Khazan always felt set apart from those around her. In time, however, she learned that feeling “weird” is not such a bad thing. Khazan uses her life story, psychology research and interviews with other distinctive people, to explore the power – and struggle – of feeling different. Given self-acceptance and mental strength, Khazan explains, you can learn to make weirdness your superpower.
