What is the difference between special and unique?

Everyone wants to feel special, better, flattered.

The truth is that we are all unique, and because we are all unique, it actually isn’t all that special to be unique.

But being unique is far better than being special.

We can all be unique together, letting our own brilliance shine along with everyone else’s brilliance.

We don’t have to be special to have something to contribute to life. That’s because we are all unique, and that uniqueness makes life that much richer, more vibrant, more interesting.

So why don’t we give up this quest to be special and just settle for allowing our true uniqueness to shine?
