    I feel bad for close minded people.

    They don't give themselves the chance to open their mind to all the possibilities and ideas in the world. Living in a world so big, there are so many things they are left behind. Being open minded involves putting your beliefs aside and listening to what others have to say in...

    I'm up for most things in life

    but feel caught in a confined marriage. There's so much in life to experience and I want to experience a lot of things. The problem having a closed minded partner is theirs no freedom to be the real me. But I made a vow and o feel bound to it.

    I love to post naked pictures on tumblr to get

    reactions and comments about my body. It's kind of vein but it makes my self esteem up so why should I care? I also love receiving nudes from men and women to judge.

    I believe being open minded means you can

    except people as they are when they believe in something different than you and when they have a different lifestyle than you do. It doesn't mean that you have to agree with them or even accept everything from everyone.

    Can true open mindedness exist?

    If it did would that mean you'd have to have no opinion about anything. Or can open mindedness mean that you don't judge people under any circumstances and accept them. Is that possible. A friend pointed out that no one is truly open. and in some way we are all closed minded

    This does not mean I am a doormat.

    This does not mean I am a follower. This does not mean I am a pervert. This means I accept that people have different opinions, different paths, different perspectives and different desires and that I like learning/hearing about them.
