Since early days of our childhood we've all heard the saying, "there are no two people alike." As with all living things humans are unique in their own special way. Surely, however, some common traits must exist.
I've been thinking and brainstorming a lot on happiness (as you may have seen in one of the last blogs I did). Though lately I was trying to stem off of that broad subject, and I came up with the question, “what does everyone have in common?”. That too is pretty broad but I thought I might as well start there.
My initial thoughts were sports or school where we all want to learn and grow together, but after some thought I realized that a lot of people don’t even play sports, and a lot of people hate school. Then I thought maybe religion and culture, Though I quickly realized many people aren’t religious and there are always people that are ostracized from a certain culture or group of people.
After a while I began to think that maybe there isn’t anything everyone has in common, but then I remembered a time when me and my friend found a dying bird and we tried to save it (sadly we did fail). Though that's not the point, the point is that we are all trying to live or survive the best we can, and that we will stop at nothing to keep ourselves and our loved ones safe. I don't think there is any one thing that we all have in common, but I know there is the idea of life, and that it can end at any point so we are all living to the best of our abilities.
