Not Like Me
Someone gave me a piece of advice that I have found helpful. When I walk into a room of people and "judge" someone, or think someone to have little in common with me, I should try to go up and say hello. Why? The idea is that all people are wounded, including me. I might find out something about myself through this other different person, that will help expand or deepen me. I can learn something from hanging around people who I judge to be just like me, in my comfort zone, but this is still too narrow a group for a deeper growth. Differences perceived can be great teachers. I sometimes find out that the difference was only in my head, or heart.
