I Can Be Friends With People Totally Different From Me

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 61,237 People

    Its so strange. All my friends are a different

    ethnicity, religion, skin color, with different, different personalities and we all get along we grew up as sisters. We have a connection because we all respect each other's differences. It's something I'll forever be grateful for.

    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...

    Hello Stranger!

    Thanks to EP, I know that I can love a fervent Christian, an avowed Republican, people who are wealthy... EP has really granted me the opportunity to care for someone before ferreting out the ways that we differ. And it's a blessing because I've realized that you can be friends...

    Totally! Tbh I have friends

    who are more academically smarter than me, like my brainy science friends, my maths loving friends and my fun friends who love English. We all help each other out.

    I am friends with people of all ages,

    races, religion and from all walks of life. I don't see differences between them, I think a lot can be gained and I think myself lucky to have found such a diverse range of people. Even if you do not agree with someones views it does not mean you cannot be friends or they do...

    I'm friends with this girl

    who is the complete opposite of me, she's flirtatious ... giggly... dressed to kill. I'm the dork friend who likes comic books and chuck Taylors.

    I can be friends with absolutely anybody.

    No matter what religion, race, gender, sexuality or whatever you are, as long as you're not a ***** or a ******, I will like you and be friends with you. I just can't see why everybody else can't think the same way.

    I believe in having a variety of friends.

    They can always give you new perspectives and information that you normally wouldn't learn anywhere else.

    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!!

    One of my natural abilities is

    as a "liaison" or bridge between two distinctly different groups. I connect with people quickly and share information. I have been the bridge between the aboriginal world and non aboriginal, young and old, rich and poor, corporate and client.

    Accepting others as they are is key!

    I enjoy learning how other people see the world, so many different perspectives. If we are only stuck to liking one type of people then you come off as closed minded and you can't see past a curtain that reveals so many interesting people and ways of thinking! Why not accept...

    I can be friends with people from a wide range

    of difference. It varies from oldschool nerds to contemporary ******* or even mixed! I'm the kind of in between these two, so maybe that's why. Most importantly, I don't judge. So maybe that's why!
