    Do Not Judge

    Ido not judge people for the transgressions because we have all made mistakes and some that we are not very proud of. Sometimes we wish we could even take them back but its impossible. We can only learn from what we have done wrong and try not to do it again. For each one of our...

    Past, What Past

    To me being a friend means accepting someone with all there is to that person. Every person is the sum total of what their life has been.  If I consider someone my friend then the past is what helped them become the friend I've learned to love and share my life with. Way...

    The Past Is the Past

    I do not judge people by their past especially my friends.  Nobody is perfect and we all make mistakes.  I care about the person's heart.  I care about our friendship.  I care about how much we love each other and that we are there for each other.  Those...

    A Past

    A past is a very personal concept to a person. A person is not defined by what they have or have not done, a long time ago.  My friends accept me for my past, so I think that it is very hypocritical of me to think any other way.  Most of my friends have what they...

    Nice People.

    There are quite a few of my friends that have a shady past. But that doesn't bother me. They're nice people. That's all that matters.

    Let It Remain Just That -- the Past

    I don't see what the big deal is here.  Everyone has a past.  We have all made mistakes and errors and done wrong.  There are people whose history may be impressive and prominant, whom I would not get along with as well.  A person's past is not a blueprint for...

    I would not be friends with someone if they had a history of sexual abuse or something horrible like that. So I guess I am a hypocrite for joining this group because if I found out you touched a little kid inappropriately, we could not and would not be friends anymore.

    I Dont Care Who You Use to Be...

    We learn and we grow, and the past is only who we once were. We've learned and grown so much since then. The problem is that people spend too much time living in the past instead of in the present. We should be thinking of the future.
