Hence, in order to live a meaningful life, one should be able to recognize his/her greatness. This would help them become exceptional.
“There's nothing wrong with having a little faith in something the world doesn't understand yet.” She believes the world doesn't need her and neither does she need it. Living on a planet reigned and contaminated by a bunch of people who call themselves "the majority", an overdue bloomer has reached heights of being extremely fed up of everything that's normal, perfect, pretty, and what not that they claim to want in a tired and talentless, and yet miserably hopeful, soul like her. But things turn upside down when she's pushed into living a more responsible life in the name of a favor. Suddenly reality starts to mold into something unexpected. Something that wasn't what "the majority" had been preaching to her all her life. Something that didn't make her feel so invisible anymore. Something that might finally prove that she, Jordan Blackwood — the worst nightmare of every ambitious parent — may not be a mistake after all. If only you know what it means to be really screwed up.
