Bridge the gap
Always endeavour to bridge the gap.
We are not all the same. Our differences are what make the world a beautiful place.
They can also be the things that keep us apart.
We can be fearful of those who are different from ourselves. We can be distrustful of them, but this is because of ignorance. It is silly to assume that we have nothing in common with people of different cultures, ethnicities, genders, sexualities. We are all human beings - our commonalities are more substantial and more numerous than our differences.
Endeavour to bridge the gap by reaching out, asking questions - even if they feel awkward - and being genuinely interested in getting to know the other party. When people can feel authenticity and true interest in them, they are usually willing to overlook any awkwardly phrased questions. So get out of your comfort zone and make that gap disappear.
