Are we all the same?

I love this post from awrestlingwriter, about our known and unknown biases against people based on appearances. I believe this also extends to behaviour and the way people live their lives – we are all so quick to judge the decisions others make, particularly if we perceive that we are or have been in similar situations (“well my parents got divorced too, and I didn’t turn to drugs/crime/insert behaviour here”). But we can never know what it is truly like to BE that person, who is on their own journey, and has their own history. I am guilty of judging people all the time. It is one of the things I am trying really hard to work on.
