I deeply value that we are different and understand that the diversity of our lives is our greatest gift to one another. I release myself from wishing that "others" could think, behave and perform in the same way as me. In doing this I step out of judgement, shaming and blaming of "the other" and begin to understand that what you are encountering, expressing and experiencing is another facet of life and another way of being in the world. If I can release this condemnation and see the value of your experience, and honour the awareness and learning that I am vicariously getting from your willingness to be in that role, THEN, I can see your life as an enrichment to mine. You are doing life that way and offering me the lens to see another viewpoint. Your journey offers me the opportunity to expand my awareness beyond my singular experience and open more awareness like a multi-faceted diamond. I see your life and empathically connect to what you are revealing to me.
In essence, I am learning through you and expanding my consciousness as a result. If we can understand this, we will be able to let go of shaming and blaming, judging and condemning our differences.
We are of value to each other BECAUSE we are different.
