    I like people. I like to know what they think,

    their beliefs, what they do, etc. It doesn't matter to me what race, gender, age, religion, etc. I don't ever judge anyone for anything. You never know what someone has been or is going through. ;)

    We're all different. I'll be friends 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. Whatever makes them happy is alright with me.

    No Dirty Laundry

    My laundry bill is high. The hotel charges $13.75 for a shirt and $6.00 for under garments. We have been staying in an hotel room for more than 32 days now. Today, I decided to launder our pyjamas and undergarments myself. But my husband's business shirts and suits still need to...

    Why wouldnt one? Not accepting someone means

    expressing negativity and disapproval of another's existence. This means effort is being done with the desire the person not being accepted would be different. By definition, no human can be molded to fit one's personal ideal, therefore not accepting someone as they are is a...

    It's not my place to judge,

    nor give judgment to others. I don't care what you are, just as long as you're a positive force in this world. I get a lot of **** from people asking me why I add so many in my circle. I get the same messages "Bob, why did you add me?" I don't judge and therefore continue to...

    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.

    I tend to give people the benefit of the doubt

    and try to see the good in everyone until they prove differently, i accept people for who they are which is no easy feat i'll admit, but i do it. It's easier it would seem to pick away at what we dislike in another person, i try my hardest to get past that and accept them for...

    different nationality, different religion, different skin color, different culture, different politics, different mentality, different in many ways. But we have one thing in common: we are all people

    You are who you are and

    for that I can respect you. You don't need to turn into and artificial bisch. Come as you come and I'll take you for what you are. You can be a pretty, beautiful, ugly, pimpled-face, freckles, and all them other things but I won't judge you until I get to know you.

    My Friend Thought I Would Hate Her For Being Gay

    When I was in high school in the ‘60s I was in an amateur folk music society. We gave free public performances in the summer. I became friends with a girl my age who was a terrific singer. We would hang out after the concerts. One night I gave her a ride home. I saw that she...

    When I met people when I was 14-15 I used to

    always think, "what do they think?","how do I impress?". After all the effort you put in with people, sometimes or most of the time you end up putting the effort in for nothing. I've learned to find people who show an interest in you for you and then you put the effort in...

    It really upsets me the way people can judge

    It's a daily struggle.

    20 years ago a psychic told me my lesson for this life was to "see the other side"- it's been a journey but the more I learn the power to empathize, to place myself in another's shoes- the closer I get to acceptance- of myself and of others. Not fully there yet but I'm a lot...

    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...
