    Exercising My Right!

    I don't have to like everyone! And that's a pretty big realization for me! =p For the longest time, I thought I had to like EVERYONE. But, then I started to see, after being on EP as long as I have, that I don't have to like everyone who crosses my path. NO! I get to choose who...

    Fair And Square

    It is our choice who we like and dislike and yes, I don't like everyone and many don't like me either.

    And I Don't

    I am never rude to people unless they truly brought it on themselves, I try to be a good person and understand that everyone has bad days. Even if you're rude to me, I don't hate you. Even if we argue, I don't hate you. But some people on this planet... I just don't like. I...

    I Forget Easily

     Sometimes I met people that I really like and then they go and do something pathetic or that's annoying and I have no problem erasing them from my life, then if they were really sorry they usually call back a couple of days later saying sorry and apologizing, those I...

    Good, Bad and Otherwise

    I usually give most people the benefit of the doubt upon first meeting them. If they come across as genuine and kind, I may develop a friendship with them but if they betray me by lying or disrespecting me, I will not tolerate it. I have come to this conclusion by...

    Liar! Liar!

    I have decided I don't have to like hypocritical christian fools or even be nice to them. I would suggest they just let it be. After all, you never really know who you are talking to, do you?

    I Don't

    Just cause i don't like someone doesnt mean i treat them bad, but i do not like everyone. There are traits i do not like, and agree with me or not it makes no difference for me and it shouldn't make a difference for you too.

    You Can't Make Me....

    I used to have an attitude that I had to like everyone and I have tried very hard to do just that but it is hard to do that when people talk about others behind their back and attack others I just can't tolerate that or be a party to that so therefore I...

    I Don't Have to

     I argued with a teacher a couple years ago. She told me that I had to like everyone because the Bible said so. I told her flat-out that she was wrong. I said I don't have to like everyone, just treat people right. That's what my mother told me and that's what I think too...

    Show me in the rules of life

    Trying Hard To Make It Work

    Over the past year, I have become really obsessed with what people think of me, and some-days when I come home from work I get a headache from over-analyzing conversations I have had in the day. I know this is not healthy and I am trying hard to let go, but part of me is...

    That's Right

    Most people I've met thought my life I've liked however there are some in the minority who I don't like at all.  Some of them started out as people I've liked then through their actions or the events we experienced (and how they reacted) I've grown to dislike them. However...

    Common Knowledge

    Everyone knows it's common courtesy to give everyone their space and respect their privacy. No, that's not the case all the time. Some people just don't get it that there are people who don't like them because of their pushy nature or kiss *** approach to a job or friendship. I...

    I Almost Feel Mean Sometimes...

    There are some people who I just cannot seem to like, regardless of how hard I try. Like one of my classmates. I've tried time and time again to disregard my dislike for him. We get along alright over instant messaging. But in person, he makes me feel uncomfortable. And he's so...

    People In General Deserve Respect Regardless

    Of course we can't like, or click, with everyone. To those of you who feel if someone doesn't like the same things as you do, or have the same ideas about things, you can't be bothered and cross them off your list - you are doing yourself a disservice. You can learn so much by...
