I don’t expect people to be a mirror image of me because of the wonderful variety the world has to offer. Since I know I don’t have to agree with everyone or be close friends with each person I meet, this knowledge allows me to enjoy people for who they are.
Learning to understand the value of diversity is important to me. Looking at how I am different from others helps me realize how unique and special I am. I also like to discover the extraordinary talents and abilities of others.
I am proud of my open and accepting behavior. Being open has brought so much goodness into my life.
My life is enriched by diversity. I value new relationships and accept people as they are.
Nurturing new relationships gives me perspective and appreciation for the views of others. I can learn from people who have had experiences that are different from my own. They can teach me valuable lessons that I have not learned from my own life experiences.
Because I want people to fully accept me for who I am, I show others that same respect. I allow people to be proud of the uniqueness they bring to the world. The world is a much more exciting place because we are all so different.
Enjoying the variety of the world brings me true happiness. I relish the differences my Creator so wisely brought into the world and I am so thankful to be part of this incredible diversity.
