Lately, I’ve been hearing this a lot from people. Statements like: “My spouse is so different from me,” “We have different interests,” “I’m an extrovert and he’s an introvert,” or “We have different ways of parenting.” And my question is: Why is that a problem?
Since when did “sameness” become a value? Or is it your value? Ask yourself: Do I value sameness, or do I value uniqueness?
What if it was TOTALLY OK (which it is) that your spouse was different, had different interests, had a different personality, and parented differently than you ? Why is your way the right way? What are you making your “differentness” mean?
That’s your brain work for today. 💡
