What is Evenhood?
"When we live in evenhood, we show kindness, respect, compassion and understanding. We care for each other; we offer support; we aren't judgemental and we encourage others to be themselves."
When you and I live in evenhood, then I see you as the wonderful human being that you are. I not only want you to be yourself. I value you for who you are. You're not judged and you're not expected to try to be something that you're not, just to 'fit in'. Instead you're respected for being yourself.
When you and I live in evenhood, I don't look for differences between us and judge whether you are in some way a threat, inferior or less valuable than me. Instead, in evenhood, we value each other as equals.
So, evenhood celebrates togetherness in the same way that we celebrate the togetherness of brotherhood, sisterhood and neighbourhood. In the case of evenhood, the thing that we can celebrate together is that we are all even, we are all equal, we all have evenhood.
When we have a mindset based in evenhood then we care for each other and we care for ourselves too. We don't exhaust ourselves trying to meet someone else's definition of normal. We can be ourselves and feel valued for who we are.
