Friday Frills - Differences


Some people do things completely differently from the way you would do them.
 It does not mean that they are right or that you are wrong. 
 It just means that people are different. 

 There are things that people say which you would probably say
in a different way, at a different time. 
 It does not mean that people are wrong to speak up, to speak out, or to speak their minds. 
 Nor does it mean that you are wrong for choosing not to do so. 
 It means that people are different.

Different is not right or wrong. It is a reality. 
 Differences become problems only when we choose to measure ourselves
by our differences in an effort to determine who is right and who is wrong.

All people are different from one another. 
 Our different points of view shape our vantage point and our vision. 
 Where we sit is a function of where we have sat.
What we can see is a function of what we have seen.

No one person's experience, point of view or view point is more accurate,
more acceptable or more righteous than another. 
 It is simply different...and that is perfectly okay.

Wise reflections, it's great that people are different, thanks this the world is more interesting. If everyone would be tolerant the differences wouldn't be any problem.
Have a wonderful weekend:)

Lauren Michelle Major said...

A great reminder! Just imagine how boring the world would be if we were all the same! Sometimes I have to consciously remind myself of this, it can be difficult when I want something done a certain way and it isn't, but sometimes by just letting others be they come out with something new and amazing that I would never have seen, or tasted, or heard, or known otherwise.

I know all people are different, sometimes it's hard to understand, though. We can be different in appearance, personality, beliefs and opinions, behavior and manners, we are all equal in the sight of God, anyway. This is how I feel:)
I really like what you wrote there, you are a very wise, thoughtful girl I suppose:) And a picture is also great! When I visit your page I always know that I'll find something interesting in here:)

Tali @ RockMyHeels said...

Great post, Sam! This is exactly what I try to remind myself every time I meet someone with a different opinion. People almost always think they're right, and that they have good intentions. We may think others don't treat us right, or maybe they opinion is wrong - but we have to remember that everyone sees the world, the situation, other people differently. We're all different but we're all equal :)

We shouldn't dislike someone because we don't like the same things as they do. People are different. Appreciate individuality. Have a great weekend Sam!!
