I Accept People As They Are

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 65,054 People

    At my school one of my friends has a genetic

    disorder.. She's the kindest girl I have ever met but yet people still have the nerve to come up to me and say "Why are you hanging out with that freak when you could be with us" I still can't believe that people say that just because of the way she looks.. Why are most people...

    I mean why not accept people

    for themselves, the only way such thing happens it's when someone doesn't accept him/herself and it's difficult to do so to others too.. What do u think?

    Dear Douche-bag Coworker: I accept you

    for being a mean, arrogant, overbearing, racist, misogynistic, passive-aggressive narcissist. My hope is that you will be able to accept the moment when karma kicks you square in the balls and brings you to your knees. My hope is also that I've led a good enough life to see it...

    I like to think of the world

    as a book. Without heroes or villains, agreeable characters as well as alien, it would be an utterly boring story.

    Why do people make fun of over-weight people

    yet don't make fun of underweight people? Both are unhealthy and disorders that stem from the same place in the mind. Why make fun of anyone for their size? You don't understand their lives and reasons for being the way they are whether they are obese or anorexic. If 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 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...

    We All Should

    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.

    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.

    Accepting another does not mean I will agree

    with them. We all share this human experience. If you think everyone who does not agree with you hates you then you do not accept others as they are. We are more alike than you think. Everyone desires to be accepted.
