    We're all different. I'll be a friend with

    anyone as long as they're nice to me. I might think someone is a little strange, but I accept that person as they are.

    At least I thought I did!

    I find it hard to accept arrogance and impossible to deal with bigotry. I can deal with a a bum but find it difficult to accept habitual drunks. And I couldn't accept my girlfriends hoarding I had to leave so I guess I really don't accept people as they are.

    Be Yourself

    Be who you are. Trying to be someone else only hurts you. You will never know if others truly love you for the real you

    I have friend who wants to be guy.

    She is a transsexual. A lot of people were making fun of her and bullying. But I love her, she is an amazing person and she doesn't deserve to be treated this way. People should respect people who they are.

    I accept people as they are,

    unless it is hurting them. If I state my opinion or disagree that doesn't mean I don't accept them. I still do, but I have thoughts and beliefs like everyone else. Still, I will accept you : )

    I don't care who you are

    or what you are, if you'll respect me I'll return it times ten. I refuse to judge anyone. Come as you are, stay that way. I won't complain. It's amazing to see people be themselves because in this society everyone is so scared to just let loose. Be yourself, that's all that...

    It really upsets me the way people can judge

    one another. So trivial. People in general are actually very similar. We share the same anatomy, the same emotions, the same facial expressions, the same basic needs. So why not celebrate our differences? Differences give us a chance to learn from one another, experience...

    Who am I to judge, when I don't want to be

    judged. We are all unique energy forces living together in human form...accepting others as they are is accepting ourselves.

    My favorite college professor always said

    I can't be more accepting.

    I've dated men of all races, I've had bi-men and cross-dressers. I've been with girls, I date the handicap and deformed. (shout out to my brothers and sisters in the military) I have no time or place to judge.

    Or do I simply wish I did?

    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...
