    How do you cope with this

    if you're surrounded by people who aren't? Such as in laws bf/gfs or your own family? How do you remain confident in your open mindedness if people are constantly looking to counter argue and undermine you for thinking out of the box?

    "I hate religion" "I hate gays" "I hate nerds"

    I respect peoples opinions, but, there is a line. Hating someone for the way they live or what they believe is honestly so ignorant. Hating someone in general is a waste of your time and helps no one. Open your eyes people. Everyone is amazing is you just give them a chance.

    I once was a player. I played the game.

    I wanted to feel better. The feeling of better never came. So I changed my philosophy. I shifted gears. In order to become something new. The dedication to change takes years. I am so close to finished. I am nearly complete. In my heart of hearts I know that to accept...

    My friend has agreed to share her dog with me

    for oral pleasure so that I can test the water. It's become our little secret. I'm interested but nervous. Is this the road to debauchery.

    I'm a bit of a contradiction.

    I find people who are open minded to be more

    mature and smart than actual people who are smart and people who claim they are "mature". They don't judge other people based on their appearance, they don't take side during an argument instead they take each sides opinion and try to resolve things rationally. They're the kind...

    Taboo conversations tend to draw me.

    Open minded individuals are my favorite. They get it. They don't shy away from topics, conversations, etc. Open minded people are adventurers, spontaneous souls, willing to go out of the norm and make a change in not only theirs, but other lives too. It's refreshing. :)
