same-same . . . but different

alldoingsamething-b

An African saying:  “same –  same . . . but different” describes us all.  In privileges and personalities (and ways of doing things) we may be different, but in aspirations, values, and capabilities, we are the same.

The duality of love and freedom is a natural part of human life for several reasons.

First, we are all the same. We are all brothers and sisters; we are all one.

Second, we are all different. Every person is unique, and each of us has his or her own preferences, thoughts, desires, needs, abilities, and goals.

– Glen Allport

Our differences make us unique and interesting and our similarities unite us and gift us with interesting and unique friends.

I hold the belief that  God made us for relationships – first with Him and then with others.

Isn’t this marvelous??!!
