Being and Seeing Differently
"And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music" Nietzsche
We are alll different, in all sorts interesting ways, and thats what makes life fascinating and intriguing, We all have a wide range of like's, dislikes and opinions on almost every subject you can imagine.
Appreciating these differences is one thing, trying to be within our personal and professional relationships will sometimes have its challenges, as will our chance meetings with others going about our daily chores and recreational pass times.
Maybe the key is to accept and respect our differences, if we can embrace our differences with tolerence then we could build better relationships, no one would ever want to enter into a brainstorming meeting with everyone having the same ideas and all going in the same direction.
"Everyone has two eyes but no one see's the same view"
For a just a moment, think about when you see someone you don't know for the first time, do you pass judgement (without even realising you do) on their looks or actions? without even knowing that person, we all do this at some level, it takes great awareness of our own thoughts to notice when we are being judgemental.
Trying to accept people for who they are without trying to change anything, might just make a whole world of difference to us and them .
