Yearning for Home While I’m at Home: A Lesson on Perspectives 



There’s no doubt that sometimes, we judge others based on their opinions. When I was in grade school, I remember having negative thoughts about a few people who didn’t think like me or thought differently about my interests. I would think to myself, “They’re the ones who are wrong.” Or, “They don’t understand.”

Now that I’m older, I’m happy that I grew out of this mindset. If I didn’t, I don’t think I would’ve gotten to know some of my closest friends or be who I am today. Reading this quote from Yearning for Home While I’m at Home simply reminded me of how important this lesson is.

In this book, Ra-Bin Kwon tells us that people have different appearances, personalities, quirks, and thoughts. If we want to be accepted and respected in the long run, we need to understand that others may have other perspectives and think differently. Listening to these new perspectives allows us to widen our worldview and shows that we care. 

So don’t judge others immediately. Instead, be open to learning what makes people unique! Maybe you’ll learn something new about yourself and gain strong relationships along the way! ⭐
