we are part of the same family

We may speak different languages and eat different food
We may have different routines or ways of life altogether!
But we are part of the same family

We may dress differently and stand for different ideologies
We may show interest in different things and have different hobbies
But still, we are part of the same family

We may have different beliefs and practice different rituals
We may even do everything differently
But yet we are still part of the same family

See what makes us family is not our similarities
It is not the fact that we share meals and watch the same television programmes
It is not that we agree about everything;

Rather,

We are part of the same family because we are able to agree to disagree on things that make us individuals
We are part of the same family because we are able to support each other not because we share interests but because we have interest in the interested person
We are part of the same family because we care enough to give each other room to express our individual selves but still stick together as an inseparable unit

So even though we may be different in every possible way
We are still part of the same family
Because our differences are what make us need each other most!
