I realized that regardless of whatever positives and negatives I see in facebook one thing is clear - through reading my friends posts (and their friends posts) I'm finding out more about the people I thought I knew. Their fears, their lives, their desires. Plus lots of cat pictures. :)
This made me want to find out more about the people I know; more than just what they are sharing in a post or tweet. I know why we are friends or family, what I don't know is what about them is really, really different. I'd like you to tell me what makes you different from me.
I'm forty years old. I live in New Jersey. I have two kids, ages 5 and 1.
I have a happy marriage to my husband of 11 years. I have a chicken for a pet.
What makes you different? For this first post, tell me something about your family that is different from my family.
Thanks for joining me on my empathy journey!
