I think it’s something more people should do, for sure. I am Hispanic, female, and I was born in Peru and raised in Saudi Arabia, the US, Peru, and I have traveled a lot. I speak three languages, albeit two better than the third. I think that trying to think through the perspective of the other has brought me more knowledge than grief, and that it is always worthy to examine perspectives outside your own, if only so you can connect on the commonalities we all have. It’s very easy to be reactive, and less so inclusive, but accepting that other points are valid and people have emotional investment in them is the first step in navigating differences.
I really love where this discussion went.
