Some of the most rewarding and memorable relationships that I have had in life, revolved around being able to embrace others where they are and eventually celebrate our differences.
If embracing others where they are causes us concern, we don’t know who we are becoming.
If we feel threatened by differences, then we don’t know why we believe what we believe.
Knowing who we are becoming empowers us to embrace others without exploiting our differences.
What we need to understand is, what is right for us, may not be right for others.
Most people react negatively to anything imposed by sanction or dogmatic predisposition.
