When we see people who are different than us, it’s easy to make judgements about them. Often, when people “aren’t like us” they are met with suspicion and derision. In my opinion, that’s how problems get started. How about instead of judging people, we get to know what’s different about them?
Different isn’t bad. It’s simply— different. But people who are different are often bullied BECAUSE of their difference. Just because someone looks different, acts different, loves different, IS different doesn’t mean they are bad, they just aren’t the same as you. Take some time to learn what the difference is all about. Being around people who are just like you can be boring. Learning new things and meeting new people will open a whole new world to you.
Be a friend. Being different can be lonely. Accepting someone for who they are and not asking them to change can make all the difference in the world to them.
