Everyone is so …

Everyone is so much the same even in their diversity. A place or culture will seem so alien, so outside of my experience. The values of people in different places will seem strange and even disturbing to me and yet it is my perspective that makes people and places strange. Underneath the differences everyone wants happiness, stability and to care for their families. They want to meet a good person to share their life with and do something of value that brings meaning to their lives. What does this mean? I’m not sure, but there is a sense of comfort in the thought that we all have those essential, basic desires in common. That though there can be such a lack of understanding between people of different cultures we all actually want the same thing.
