    Yeah, i accept everything people said on my

    photo. I just asked the question to see what people thought, i wasn't planning on making my life out of them saying i was awful or attractive. People said things about how i wear too much make up and the reason i wear make up is because i hate my skin and i hate what i look like...

    I have a lot of opinions/beliefs

    that I stand by full heartedly and if need be will defend it to my best of ability. That being said I've realized that when having such strong opinions, especially on controversial topics, I need to be aware/understanding & accepting of the other side's beliefs/arguments. This...

    Normally I completely accept other people's

    opinions. But the other day I was in a conversation with my parents and family. I don't remember exactly what we were talking about but my dad started talking about gay marriage being stupid. I completely disagree. I support gay marriage 100%. Love is love no matter who it is...

    People have opinions

    and deserve to be heard. It's unbelievable the amount of people that dismiss peoples opinions, for many reasons. We're in a world full of different people, which the way the human world works, we all contribute to it, helping each other. It only makes sense that peoples...

    or needlessly offensive my acceptance kinda goes out the window.

    Why do people feel the need to give their

    opinion about everything. If you don't agree with something you don't have to "broadcast" your views about it. Most of the time it just stirs up "foolish" debates. The person you choose to attack could possibly careless about what you think. So don't waste your time feeding...

    Everyone has opinions

    and some will agree with yours. If you post a story here, there will be someone who will not like it and will post a comment about it. If you publish a book, critics will come out of the woodwork to trash it. Get used to it because it will happen. But if you only surround...

    We all have opinions on various subjects,

    and a basic fact is that if you want me to listen to yours on whatever you are obliged to listen to mine. It is a kindly act to listen to a perspective completely before trying to argue against it, just out of good manners and an interest in debate.

    about it. Then I will happily disregard you and your opinion.

    Well, my girlfriend and I are two completely

    different people. We both disagree on what we believe to be major things such as; religion, LGBTU rights, and politics. Right now we're wanting about the Gazaa incidents and to me it sounds so stupid. We live in America and she's upset about how our country does nothing and she...

    I assure you, there are likely MANY things upon

    which you and I do not agree. However, I can still respect you as a human being, and thus, engage in dialog with you in a respectful, open manner. Even if neither of us changes the other's mind, I'm certain we will both learn something as a result of the discussion.

    one of my principles in life

    that i accept the others with their visions but that does not mean to follow their opinions so i just accept what you are saying because it comes from you but i do not have to do what you are saying because it will comes to me

    I am perfectly okay with agreeing to disagree

    with people as long as things are kept civil and both parties are being respectful. Variety is a beautiful thing and I find it incredibly stifling when people get offended that my opinions aren't the same as theirs. As if my believing differently somehow invalidates their own...
