The Same



None of us are the same - we are individuals.

Some of us are the same - we form groups

We're all the same - we're all human.

All three frameworks are equally true in the correct situation.  Correct understanding of when to apply each  is key.  Flexibility is fundamental to understanding people, including yourself.

  1. Once again, we are on the same wavelength. I had over 500 words; you were probably under 100 and said more.

    The biggest thing for me, has been realizing that I am not always one, on my own. That my story is often the common story of humanity, and that I need not be ashamed.

    There is a lot for all of us to learn, about connectedness.
