Well, no, actually we aren’t.
One of the captivating characteristics of the human experience is that we are all unique, each and every one of us. And as we look to find common ground with those around us, keeping this in mind can really take the pressure off.
No longer do we have to keep hunting for our perfect match — relationally, politically, professionally, etc. — because there’s a better, more productive pursuit.
How about — How are we the same?
We’re better off letting go of the illusive mirage that someone, anyone is always going to agree with us. If it’s truly progress we’re after, finding a place to stand together — regardless of how much separates us — is an awfully good place to start.
