Feel like you don't fit in? This delightful Frida Kahlo comic may help.

What makes you different is what makes you special.


Growing up, Rebecca Martin used to think of herself as the strangest person in the world.

She was inspired by renowned Mexican artist Frida Kahlo (and her famous unibrow) and wrote a beautiful quote about feeling out of place:

“I used to think I was the strangest person in the world, but then I thought, there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too.

Well, I hope that if you are out there you read this and know that yes, it’s true I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you.”

Eventually, awesome illustrator Zen Pencils brought Martin’s words to life with this delightful comic on feeling like you don’t fit in:

The illustrator says he wasn’t really familiar with Kahlo. But after learning more about the artist, he was amazed at her life and courage and was inspired to draw these illustrations to accompany Martin’s beautiful quote.

This comforting comic is meant to remind all of us that what makes you unique is also what makes you special — like Kahlo’s bushy eyebrows, which she showed off so proudly.

Kahlo’s unibrow has become synonymous with the artist herself, and her many self-portraits are now practically as familiar as the Mona Lisa.

So if you don’t like that cute mole on your face or that funny-shaped birthmark on your arm or the fact that you were blessed with full eyebrows, maybe it’s worth considering that those unique attributes are what makes you special. Those things are what make you you.

Most importantly, remember that you are never alone in your insecurities. We’ve all got ’em — even Frida!
