I just see things differently (I ain't been there yet).
Especially in America we have bought into the notion that we are "Special", "Unique" and "Different". As wonderful as that illusion is the reality is we are none of these. We are all cut from the same DNA Cloth. The thing is that piece of cloth reacts differently to the very same situations as the others. Two people facing the same situation do not always behave in the same manner; and it is just that alternative course which develops us individually as we are. The stresses of buying into the illusion that we are all "different" comes in when we face various trials and tribulations. We become overwhelmed with the notion that "no one understand" and "I am all alone" the encouragement and reassurance comes with "no you're not, I've been there too." Love conquers illusion.
