We can learn a lot about ourselves by spending time with people who we feel are different.
How can we spend time with people who we feel are different than us? We can volunteer. There are so many organizations to help out. Food pantries, homeless shelters, boys and girls clubs, schools, sporting organizations, art museums, senior citizen centers, and hospitals are just some of the places we can volunteer. When we choose organizations that we do not know much about, we expand our worlds by just showing up and helping out.
However you choose to find others who are not like you, please do. This is a sure fire way to get out of a rut. It is also a sure way to expand your world and get to know yourself better.
