If almost all your friends are the same culture, same health, same schools, same race, same religion, same area, same beliefs, same age as you, same etc… How are you going to grow, learn, teach, appreciate, empathize, experience, value and respect?
I am blessed to know so many different, diverse, interesting, brave, insightful, multi-cultural, lovely, respectful people from all over the world and all walks of life and you have all made my life amazing!!
Even in my darkest moments, they have all become so inspirational to me for different reasons. We need the balance.
Whether I am in a bad flare / relapse or just my daily challenge, its always been the different people I have met on this journey that makes it so rewarding and gets me out of a head space.
