The world is full of people. Almost 7 billion, to be exact. Each one of these people comes with baggage. They all have their own beliefs, convictions and ideas. We are 7 billion different examples of what a person is.
No two people are the same. Even common goals and a common sense of direction don't always lead to the same place. Our paths cross every day, in ways so subtle we hardly ever notice. What you do or say today, could effect the outcome of someone's life, regardless of intent.
When you have so many different ideas running around in such a small place, there will be collisions. Avoidance is a hindrance every bit as much as it is an asset. When you aim to avoid, you become invisible and miss every time.
Every single one of us has the same common goal - to reach the top of the mountain. Whether by intent or by pure accident, everyone steps on somebody as they climb up this mountain.
If you reached the top, do you even know what you would do? There isn't but one thing you could do , and that is to stand there and wonder what's next. If you aren't constantly trying to reach that extra step, you aren't going anywhere.
Personalities clash, and the little things start to get in the way. We are all struggling with something on the inside, while believing on the outside that we are the ones who know what's right.
In the end, it all comes down to one thing - we are all wrong, every day. None of us are unique, no matter how much we like to think we are. When it comes down to it, we are all people. We all have the same ultimate goal, so all of us are the same.
When you look at the big picture, all of our differences are merely superficial. They can't be touched, but they can be swept away. At our core, we are all the same person.
The next time you think you're right, remember that you aren't the only one. When you have an idea, someone else has that idea too. None of us are unique, yet we still fight and struggle for what we believe. No matter how hard you try, hate is a waste of time. Being able to say you're right, is no more of an achievement than saying you are wrong.
It takes strength to say you're wrong, and it's one of the hardest things in life to do. We are all wrong. The differences ultimately mean nothing, because no matter what we do, it's all the same in the end.
