Remember that everyone’s individual experience is going to be different. From the day we are born we are building or reality, like a house. Some of our houses will be further along than others and some houses will based onthe materials we used to build it. When someone with a new idea comes along and asks you to take clicks away from the foundation of your house, you’re going to be hesitant because those are some of your first bricks. Those are the ideas that your parents, your friends and family have taught you. The older you get, the more unwilling you’ll be to make a major change to your house. That’s ok but you’re not just a house. You’re a house in a neighborhood, in a city, in a country, in the world. Before you clap back at someone who has a different opinion than you, remember you can’t just walk into their house and start renovations. That’s not your crib. Try and understand their experiences,  and work on renovations together.
