For years, I tried as hard as possible to be like everyone else. To fit in. To be ordinary.
But when my parents wrote the "unauthorized biography of my life" in Overwhelming Odds, I realized for the very first time how freeing it was to embrace my scars. To realize that by living into who I was and connecting with others, I was leading the life I was meant to lead.
I have never been reminded of this truth more than during a recent conversation with my new friend Amy Roloff, of TLC's hit reality show Little People, Big World.

Because in the end, it is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and fully celebrate those differences.
And perhaps the most important place to begin this important journey is with the reflection in the mirror.
Fearing #LittlePeopleBigWorld would make her vulnerable to public scrutiny, Amy Roloff was first hesitant to participate in reality television. She chose to embrace the opportunity, showing how relatable her family is, despite their differences.
