What Separates Us From Others
I have to admit I have been avoiding Social Media these past few weeks. I cannot take the bickering, name calling, and assumptions that are filling up my news feed. Constantly seeing these posts makes my anxiety and depression worse. I hate seeing the discord among others and have thought a lot these past few weeks about what separates us from others.
One of the things that I have noticed is that most people are so focused on what they believe and getting others to see things their way that they are forgetting others feel the same about their beliefs. This leads to division and separation because no one is willing to accept that others may feel differently from themselves. I have been a long time believer that sometimes we need to “agree to disagree” when a compromise is not possible. While this may not always solve the problem itself, it can stop friendships from being ruined and separations from being formed.
While I know there is not an easy solution to solving the problems of what separates us form others, I know that we need to work together to make sure that we are not destroying others just because we want to get our point across. So before you attack someone for their believes remember that we need to treat others as we wish to be treated. A little kindness goes a long way. Plus you can always just scroll past something that you don’t agree with and go on with your day.
Thank you for reading a story from #BehindTheBlogger Hop. Every 2 weeks a group of bloggers is given a writing prompt. These prompts are very open ended, so our bloggers can write about whatever they desire. The main rule is that their blog post directly relates to the topic of that week. The point of this hop is for our readers to get to know us on a personal level. Please hop along and read all of the blog posts in this weeks hop. Just click the links below. If you want real and raw emotion, then you will find it here. After you read each post, please comment and share. We want to get to know you too!
