Ask anyone what they have in common with anyone else, and 100% of the time, the answer will come in the form of what they can "see". Not simply appearance, but other tangible things like hometown, interests, social and cultural similarities, school attended, jobs, hobbies, hair color, skin color, eye color, shirt color. The only answer that should matter to the question, "what do we have in common with others" should be: "We ALL laugh and we all cry, we ALL have doubts, are scared, lack confidence, experience anxiety. We ALL have experienced and will again experience loss. We ALL at some point have felt devalued and underappreciated. We ALL have felt confused, conflicted and overwhelmed. We ALL have received something we didn't deserve. We ALL have felt lonely. We ALL have loved something or someone. We ALL have cared too much and not cared enough. We ALL experience a wide range of emotions and although different things may trigger those emotions, those common emotions determine who we are and also demonstrate that we are ALL more alike in the things that matter most and we are ALL different in things that simply don't matter at all."
Lord, I may not have the same life experiences as everyone but I have experienced the same emotions and that makes me more like others than different from them and that should help me to be less judgmental and more empathetic and compassionate toward everyone.
