There is a saying that opposites attract. Like the opposing ends of a magnet drawn onto each other.
But there is also the belief that people need to match in order to suit each other, to be able to communicate on the same level and see things in the same perspective.
That is not necessarily true.
There is a reason why The Lady and The Tramp worked out despite being nothing alike. Being from different backgrounds and levels, they found that they completed each other. Because having grown up differently, with other kinds of experiences and views on life, that “other”, the person so astoundingly opposite to you – as it seems – has an entirely inverse perspective. One that does not necessarily contradict yours, but rather, comes to complete it.
It would be truly boring if we all had the same beliefs, opinions and views on life. There would be nothing to push us to grow, to learn, to improve, to become better at life itself. There would be nothing to show us another side to reality and to dreams.
We need that ‘different’ in our lives because it is what makes us more unique.
And sometimes, it is through that contrast that we find something that completes us.
