Round Peg Square Peg...What Is The Difference?


I was just emailing someone, and commenting, that 9/10ths of the time I feel as though I am a round peg in a square hole, or a square peg in a round hole. (Does anyone know the difference? Perhaps a square peg is a little less conforming to societal norms?) But, then I was thinking...maybe we all feel this way. Maybe all of us are all square pegs in round holes and round pegs in square holes and our pupose is to not 'fit' in, but to just be who we are, regardless of who we are surrounded by, related to and married to. Maybe that is the whole 'shape' of things. Be yourself, create, do what comes naturally to you, and don't worry so much.

Yes I'm a square peg in a round whole, or the other way around! We are all a little different and should enjoy it!

A square peg hasn't had the rough timber edges taken off. So perhaps it's a statement about someone still being rough around the edges? Although a square pegged person can also come off as being a 'square'. So perhaps it's cooler to be a round peg in a square hole? lol :)
