    I think it is a gift

    and i am very glad to have it. I don't care what you like, what your style is. Puk rock, Metal, if you are chrisitan or jewish or a muslim. I only care for your heart and how you act. Everyone can be a good person no matter what style or religion

    It's always fun meeting new people

    and getting to know them. Plus it gives you a break from your old friends!

    I am Jewish. So many people around the world

    hate us, hate me. I have done little harm I am aware of! I have non-Jewish friends! I value these friendships immensely!

    That's like me and all of my friends,

    we're into totally different things but that's what makes our friendships so interesting because we might not be into the same things but we are still friends also it helps as its easy to make a conversation and also you can learn from them and they can learn from you.

    I like having friends

    that like the same things that I do...or at least some things...but I also enjoy having friends that are totally opposite of me. You learn more from them. Like I'm insecure, introverted, shy to an extent, cynical, negative...geez I THINK I have some good traits somewhere!!LOL...

    I have become content with people not wanting

    to talk with me because I am married or because I may be a different race from them. I guess everyone has their own preferences of the kind of people they wish to speak with. At the same time, people become so blinded by these things they may miss out on talking to a great...

    I have friends who's interests

    and personalities are very different if not completely opposite of mine. As long as you see value in each other and cherish each other's feelings that's all that matters. Number one respect each other. Number two have fun!!
