    I accept everyone. Gay,

    straight, bisexual, transgender, asexual, etc. if you smoke weed,wear skimpy clothes, I will accept you if you accept me. If you're not hurting anyone, why should I hate you?

    Last week I had to go to my local home

    improvement store. I usually go in the middle of the day to avoid any semblance of a crowd. Thus I had the place mostly to myself - except a few hardy contractors. I went to the sole clerk, who had no line. I avoid those automatic check outs because I invariably mess up and need...

    I believe everyone has something to offer.

    Whether it be a lesson or wisdom ! I've learned not to burn bridges but to make maps along my way.

    I'm perfectly flawed,

    so I always appreciate everyone's differences. People that say "She/He is ugly" must stare hard at that Mirror because they are NOT the true beauty they believe they are.

    I do mostly. If somebody has been hateful

    towards me, there's absolutely no way I would talk to them outside of a work environment. But if somebody has been respectful to me, we'll get along brilliantly.

    that they accept everyone and/or say that others should do the same. I disagree! Why you ask? Because I simply cannot and will not accept certain kinds of people. I won't accept serial killers (especially those who do it for fun), rapers, molesters, sadists, narcissists...

    No matter how hard we try not to judge, or how hard we try to accept people as they are, there will always be a small part of us that continues to resist, that will judge and try to change others. The most we can do is acknowledge that part in order to fight it. It takes time...

    No partner. No kids. Just her and her Labrador. After a hard day of stress, she can just spread, lie back on the sofa and let her Labrador take away all her stress with his magic powers. Lucky girl.
