3 Things about people we should remember

1. The way we portray ourselves isn’t representative of what’s in our hearts.

Some of the most people who looked tough and rough I’ve ever met, had always been nice in my life, literally giving you the shirt off their back whenever you need it.

It does not matter the color your skin, or if you’ve got tattoos covering you from head to toe. It does not matter what religion you are. What matters is what’s inside.

I was taught that it’s very important to associate with some people only, and if someone looked or behaved differently, i openly clear them out. Living with people had showed me that everyone is exactly the same inside, no matter how they portray themselves on their outside.

2. Different races and cultures make the world a more interesting place ever.

Do you really only want to relate with people who are exactly like you? I don’t. Because it's boring. I absolutely love to try new foods, clothes and being shown new ways of doing things. My desire is to put myself into different culture, and experiences what other do.

Our ways of thinking and doing things shoul be challenged, and be able to grow in ways that we never would have been able to before. If we stay in our own world, we will never know what we are missing. That's a real shame.

3. The best people to associate with are the ones who don’t claim to have it all together.

It doesn’t matter where you come from, if you claim to have everything figured out, chances are that you are lying to yourself, not others. People in my life tell me they had figured things out so I didn’t have to. They told me to listen to their voice and they will lead me in the right direction. They had built a community of like-minded people, with the next generation.

But it was suffocating. Since 2017 to 2021 of being on this earth, I don’t really have things even close to figured out. And I will probably never. The people I meet now don't claim that their way of life was the best. They tell me how I needed to live or what I needed to do to be accepted. When i came to their life, they just accepted me. For no reason other than the fact that I was a person, just like them. They know I have different experiences and views than they are, and together, we can be something great.

Life isn’t about being the same as everyone else.

It’s not about doing what’s expected of you all the time. Definitely, it is not about making sure you stay within your own culture and race all the time.

However, I don’t believe and will necessarily never believe that anyone has the right to tell someone else what they should believe and who they should associate with. Our differences are beautiful and should be celebrated and respected.

Diversity is an amazing thing in life. We are lucky to live in a world where we have so much of it. And if you want to give your life deeper meaning, go seek it out.
