One thing about feeling like a Black Sheep my whole life, you focus on being authentic and true to yourself, which can also make you feel like a flock of one. Brant's book helped me realize that not only is it ok to be who I am, but that there are many others like me, but our flock is spread out. The book should come with a soundtrack because I was bopping my head in agreement up and down every page.

Exactly What To Say
"As a child I was always taught that “being” a Black Sheep was possibly something to avoid. Fitting in was the status quo and the ability to carve your own path was frowned upon. Your world can easily force its own agenda on you and if you in any way feel that you have the desire to dictate your own life story, then this practical and powerful read will certainly help you to achieve it. My big lesson was to stop thinking that I am a black sheep and instead learn to “have" black sheep to guide me. I now know EXACTLY what mine are. It's time for you to find yours."
