Embracing Otherness

Thandie Newton is a familiar personality to many of us – she has been in some of the biggest Hollywood blockbusters of all time.  But this interview portrays a very different view of Thandie – one that illustrates rejection, confusion, and shame.

So how did she overcome these difficulties?  She embraced otherness – the essence and oneness that we all share in ourselves.  This otherness is how we connect to each other.

What Thandie speaks of is illuminated by stories of other people she has encountered that have taught her something about herself.
