    I like people for who they are,

    and if we have differing opinions that's fine, I am a very open and understanding person, ready to help people with problems or thoughts they may seem as taboo, so I don't understand why i emanate peace and acceptance, but the moments someone discovers my beliefs im treat so...

    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.

    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 don't agree with one night stands,

    I believe sex should be out of love and passion wit someone u want a future with, now does this mean I look down on other who don't practice this? No, it means I still respect them, but simply don't agree with an aspect of your life. I'll still be kind,

    Doesn't mean I have to like you

    or agree with you, but I'll respect you. Some people are just different, have other points of view. It's not too hard to understand.

    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.

    There can be a lot of things different between

    you and your next door neighbour, not least the numbers on the doors. A fundamental thing to accept is that if you're a male you'll notice I'm female!

    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...

    Well, this is obviously a lie.

    I mean, there'd be few people to claim they accept Hitler, Pol-Pot or Stalin as they are, or for what they are. And those that do, well, they don't usually find other people as accepting, for a good reason. The same goes, to some degree, even for the common garden variety...

    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...

    that people who are a little 'off' make better friends than popular people. I guess since they know what its like to be the one left out, and have the courtesy to not put other people through that BS. Or maybe off beat people are just nicer. *shrugs*
