Isn't that the expected line we hear from the alien as they land in a strange new world? They want to establish that they are not a threat. They may look different, act different, speak different, but their intentions are good. They want to get along, co-habitate and see what they can learn from each other.
For much of my life, this is how I have felt. I had an interesting childhood where I lived in several African countries, in international communities, and was exposed to many different cultures. When I returned back to the US when I was 10, a part of me never fit in. I never understood the 'baseball, apple pie, and Chevrolet' American perspective. I didn't embrace a lot of the values and perspectives of my peers. In my formative teen and college years I learned not to share the parts of myself that others couldn't relate to easily. That strategy worked for my post college African travels and experiences as well.
In fact, if I scan my 42 years, there have been relatively few times that I have truly connected with others to a point where I felt that I was talking to a fellow alien from my home planet. I know they are out there. I know I'm not alone. I know lots of people feel this way too. They just happen to be from another solar system from mine.
The different perspectives show up in a variety of areas; financial, emotional, relational, communication styles, intensity, dedication, even sex. When not on your home world, you have to constantly compromise to interact and survive. I don't mind being different, as long as I'm not overly judged. Otherwise, the natural choice is to keep it hidden. It's what most of us do. But like most people, I just want to be myself and live in peace. I have a desire to connect. I share that with you humans.
