Don’t Judge!

tickItemEvery culture has its own set of experiences, traditions and manners of dress that are considered the norm. These may not be the same as those in your own culture, but neither are they any worse. Traditions develop over the course of the area’s history. As more is learned about the history, a better grasp on why certain social norms exist can be grasped. While you may see a strange, backward land, the country’s people probably view you the same way! Embracing the differences, developing cultural awareness and learning not to judge others can help the new expatriate to fit into this new world.

Thanks to Mike Flanagan for this great cartoon!
