“You have to be unique, and different, and shine in your own way.” – Lady Gaga
Look for differences in situations, not similarities. We might be basing our conclusions off of an isolated incident – an anomaly of sorts. This then sets off a chain of misinformed decisions that can then spiral.
Don’t think A to B to C. Start with D and follow where it might lead. The easiest explanation, oftentimes, is incorrect or not the entire story. Be cognizant of this.
Be well, live well, and smile.
