Respect our Differences
The goal for today is to reflect on the differences in people. Why is it that no two fingerprints are the same? Or how no two snowflakes are identical? That’s because variety is the spice of life! If you appreciate this fact, you will realize that everyone has the right to be different. There is no room in life for the ‘isms’- Racism, Sexism, Ageism or Pessimism.
When we look at nature, we see so much variety. Even in one category, such as apples, there is an estimated over seven thousand varieties! You could eat a different apple every day for more than 19 years, and never eat the same kind twice!
Therefore, it is no surprise that no human being is the same. We are all a unique, special entity, thanks to our different combination of characteristics, qualities, and strengths. When you respect that, you’ll see that our differences make us all beautiful.
“A great relationship is based on two main principles. First, appreciate your similarities and second, respect your differences.”
