We’re not that different after all… (EC)

I laugh, I love, I hope, I try, I hurt, I need, I fear, I cry. And I know you do the same things too, So we’re really not that different, me and you.” – Collin Raye

I wish everyone could understand this. We’re all human, and we all live our different lives but experience many of the same things. Whether you laugh on a regular basis or just on occasion, it is still laughter. Laughter ties us together. Whether it is a man or a woman that you love, or anywhere in between, it is still love. Love ties us together. You may hope for a better life for yourself, or someones else, you may hope for something that no one else has ever hoped for, but it is still hope. Hope ties us together. Whether it be trying with all your effort and not succeeding, or just simply trying and succeeding, it is still trying, and we all try at something at some point in life. Trying ties us together. If you hurt once in a while, if you hurt all the time, if you cause others to hurt, or have been hurt by another, it is still hurt, and we all hurt sometime or another. Hurt ties us together. Whether you need the basics of life such as food and shelter, or you need somebody to hold you tight and tell you that everything is going to be alright, it is still need. Need ties us together. Whether you fear death, clowns, heights, darkness, or what may lie ahead in life, it is still fear. Fear ties us together. You may cry out of happiness, fear, anger, sadness or despair, or you nay just cry because life feels like more than you can handle, it is still tears that fall. Crying ties us together. We all do these things in some form or another. So we’re really not that different, me and you. Think about that next time you want to judge someone for being different… we’re not that different after all.
