So, you, or your kid, aren’t like most people? Being different can be hard and painful. Just like a goat lost in a flock of sheep, it’s easy to become self-conscious of your horns and racked with self-doubt.
Hang on though.. the world needs goats!
Sure, they may be too skittish, too bold, too sensitive, too “colourful”, too loud, too quiet, too intense, too unconventional to accept direction, or fit with mainstream expectations. They can stick out like sore thumbs in classrooms or workplaces, and be perceived to be “hard work” or “a handful”. They may even occasionally destroy washing, or head-butt people, but goats are the ones prepared to climb the steepest mountain, go out on limbs, and look over into new horizons. They fearlessly and stubbornly value their own independence and can be determined to do things the hard way.
Without them, humanity wouldn’t progress to newer and better things. We wouldn’t have music, art, innovation, new technology, and large-scale philanthropy. There would be no moving or shaking. We probably wouldn’t laugh as much. Life would be a whole lot more beige. Every great person that ever changed the world significantly for the better was likely diabolical at the age of 3, or 14, or possibly even in middle age! There is much hope yet for the lovable goat in your life?
Here at the Kooky Clinic we celebrate goats of all descriptions and seek to transform medical conditions, sufferings, and dysfunctions, into delightful quirks and interesting, creative, compassionate human beings with big dreams. The secret is every goat finding their herd where their horns will be admired!
