… and I love that I don’t live in a bubble in which everyone agrees with me, lives like me, and thinks like me. If we’re never challenged, how on earth do we grow?

If you don’t have friends with whom you disagree, you’re missing out on far too much of life’s color, on perspective gained from hearing other points of view from people you care about.

Life is not one-sided, it’s not monochromatic. One of God’s best creations is the rainbow, which represents the spectrum of all colors.

Do you have friends from different walks of life, different stages, different lifestyles? If not, find some. Life is so much richer when you see all of the colors.
