    A Plea For Tolerance

    If we but knew what forces helped to mold The lives of others from their earliest years— Knew something of their background, joys and tears, And whether or not their youth was dear and cold, Or if some dark belief had taken hold And kept them shackled, torn with doubts...

    Totally agree with the title of this group.

    I have a number of so called "disabilities" but don't class myself as such. Yes I have a stammer, hearing loss and bipolar disorder which are all very well controlled. I don't believe in the word "normal". I believe everyone is unique. If anyone would like to comment and chat...

    I really do accept people

    as they are: I may not like some of their choices but who am I to judge them. I have no hate in my heart. I have thought about this lately and I can't think of any reason to hate anyone. I just don't see the point.

    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.

    Two things to remember in life.

    Take care of your thoughts when you are alone, take care of your words when you are with people.

    Psychology says, men tend to forget

    I accept people as they are.

    This doesn't always mean that I enjoy who they are... but I don't expect people to change for me. There are so many personalities to explore and try out... I think it is more efficient to find the people who have the personality you are looking for rather than to make someone...

    I finally told my friends

    and family that I practice witchcraft and I'm proud to be Wiccan. I finally decided to let them know who I really am after almost a decade of hiding. It feels great to be open, even if not everyone is okay with it, I know this is what I want and I won't be ashamed any longer

    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 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.

    that likes people as themselves. I will accept you if your weird, quiet, perverted, annoying, nerdy, athletic, gay, lesbian, bi, trans, I really don't care how you are, I will always accept you. I won't make you change just so you can please me. I won't.

    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.

    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...

    I've been on EP for about 2.5 years or so. No one seems to respond to me at all when I make posts or ask them questions about theirs. Perhaps I'm not pretty enough. So I guess that means I don't really belong here. Then again, I don't seem to belong anywhere. I've had a number...

    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...
