We All Have The Same Emotions -
Just Over Different Things
---Don’t we all share the same emotions? You become happy, sad, enthusiastic, contented, feel inferior, feel superior, love, hate, etc. Well…guess what? So do I. And so does everyone else. We all have these wants and needs in our arsenals and can draw upon any of them, at a moment’s notice. We have different things or events and experiences in our lives that push our buttons, but we react to things, differently, from the same list of emotions.

---This example should make this clear. A bunch of us are hungry - experiencing the same emotions - but we have different food items that will satisfy us. Bob may want pizza while Jim wants steak. Mary may want eggplant while Sue wants a salad.

---We can see from the example that though they are all hungry, different things push their buttons. Of course, there are times when you intersect with someone. Sometimes there is someone you intersect with on a regular basis and some people that never darken your door. Many relationships are based on this dynamic.

---Whether you be staff, resident or butcher, baker or candlestick maker…we are much the same with a set of different wants and preferences that makes us all a little different. This is why we can be the same…but, different, at the same time. Take Care.
