Recall the expression, “different strokes for different folks” isn’t this adorable, It’s a little build in Holland, The Veenpark,Banger-Compascuum*
We are all unique, in our own personal way, that is what is so wonderful about meeting and getting to know another person. I grew up in an age when we were encouraged to have pen pals. With the electronic age, snail mail seems to have gone the way of the 10 cent phone call.
Yet, the internet now provides us with opportunities that would have been unheard of in days gone by. The meetings can be more frequent, and more direct if not face to face, they are still person to person. Respect becomes key, we may appear to be different, we may dress, walk, talk in a different manner, but we are still connected, We all feel, we all have needs and wants, even though our experiences/challenges differ, we came to “be” in the same way.
Intriguing build isn’t it. So are the people around us. Each person in your life, is a whole new landscape waiting to be discovered. Accept and respect differences, strive for harmonious relationships.
