    I try to accept for who there

    or rather as much they let me. The lengths I go to avoid is arguments is legendary( at I like to think so). I will just about put up with everything you could possibly throw at me.... As long as I like or care for you, I take the good with the bad. Nobody on this Earth is...

    My Job is not to Judge.

    My Job is not to figure out if someone deserves something. My Job is to lift the fallen, To restore the broken, And to heal the hurting.

    The key to accepting people

    as they are is accepting yourself as 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'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.

    Life is entirely too short to worry about

    I would like for people to accept me

    as I am. I'm not skinny, drop dead gorgeous, extremely intelligent or any of those things. I'd like for people to look at the positive things about me. I'll try my best to make you laugh on your bad days, honest and loyal. So, if I feel this way then I'm sure other people to. I...

    If anyone would like to talk then

    that would be cool. I don't care your weight, sexuality or religion. I just want to talk to you and make some connections. I'll accept you as you are just as I hope you'll accept me as I am.

    We All Should

    I'm far from perfect myself,

    and I don't have the right to judge someone based on how they look or act. I'll still treat you the same whether you're famous or a person with amputated body parts. Treat others how you would like to be treated.

    after an unfavorable incident,

    i tend to think about the person / people i dealt with and try to put myself in their shoes to understand the reason of their behavior. if i find answers, i usually forget my rages against them & tend to be polite to them whenever possible.

    I never block people- I just use a wide range

    of vocabulary until they leave on their own free will. It's quite funny the responses I get on occasion. So I let them be themselves-their true self without judging and it's their decision whether they enjoy my various personalities I conjure up! That is if I even decide to...

    Okay. I couldn't find the right group

    This is my cousin's dog,

    We were all created to be unique humans,

    no one is the same. Yes some things are the same like emotions, we all bleed and are all made of cells. So why wouldn't I accept others uniqueness, I hope others accept mine.

    So here’s the thing.

    I never ask anything from anyone except for acceptance. That’s it. For example; I’ve only ever asked for money once in my life and I paid it back immediately. I never ask for help because I am a firm believer of helping yourself. I carry a lot on my shoulders and try to find...

    It's crazy how many people I'm okay with.

    The crazy sexual ones, the creepy ones, the awkward ones even the hopelessly lost ones... I feel like all of them are a little part of me in a way. And I wanna keep them all around just to get to know myself better.

    We all get to a point in life

    where we need to take control of who we are as people. You do this by serious soul searching and being honest with yourself. Don't rely on someone else for your happiness and self worth. Only you can be responsible for that. If you can't love and respect yourself - no one else...
