I Accept People As They Are

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 68,135 People

    Growing up, my parents taught me you treat a

    person based on WHO they are rather than WHAT they are. In other words, I do not care what color, race, creed, ethnicity, nationality, religion, political persuasion, gender, sexual orientation, social status, or whatever. If you are a good person, you are my friend. The only...

    So I have been waiting

    for something of great significance to strike me before writing my very first story. (Sure, I've responded to a few posts and stories by now, but here's my own first story...) I worry a lot about whether or not I'm ok in the eyes of others. Yes, even despite the fact that I don...

    I may have a very obvious kink in my username

    but as long as people don't judge, I like to have them in my circle. I'm a friendly guy as you get to know me, sure I've made many mistakes in the past but I'm trying to fix that. if you can look past my sordid habit of liking feet. You're alright with me and I'd love to chat if...

    Hi, I'm Jane. I know you'll probably won't read

    this unless you're not superficial! So I have a little story. (Btw if you have any experience that involves preferring one's personality over the looks or liking bigger people, than you might wanna read this.) I'll probably lose friends (bc I already did) or at least decrease...

    I accept people as they are.

    I hate people who don't accept me, and I hate when people try and change others, so I accept people, as they are, and I would never ask someone to change who they really are, its not right.

    I can spot a faker with my eyes closed.

    Probably because I spend too much time observing people rather than being a part of the conversation. I don't care about what religion they are from (I ain't religious myself so I would be a hypocrite to care about such measly stuff), neither do I care about their race, color or...

    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 know as a society we tend to accept people

    for who they are and how they hold their beliefs. I recently came out to my mom as a bisexual male. She has no problem. She understands me and was glad I told her but I have not told my dad. He is old school. He would not want to hear this from his son. I am proud of myself...

    I have friends of all different races,

    religions,orientations, etc. Life is way too short to shun a person for just being who they are. If you would like to make a new friend then please shoot me a message and add me.

    Within Reason that is.

    No sane person could possible accept rapists, killers, terrorists, Pedos, and so on. To do so would be insane.

    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...

    The real reasons we shouldnt judge.
