Likeness and difference

There's space within sisterhood for likeness and difference, for the subtle differences that challenge and delight; there's space for disappointment and surprise.

We grow irritated at our loved ones' differences.

Why can't they see things the way we do?

But, their differences are what bring life and surprise into our relationship.

When we loosen the reins of control and let each other be individuals, ...we grow together and appreciate the similarities and contrasts, the joy and challenges.
My loved ones and I have a lot in common, we're different too. I'll give them room to be who they are.
