    More People Should

    Accept The Things You Cannot Change

    'Accept the things you cannot change, find the courage to change the things you can and the wisdom to know the difference.' If you believe in karma you accept that we create our own difficulties by our actions. Often it is difficult for us to see that overview even if we accept...

    For Others

    I practice accepting others for who they are. Cheesy sounding I know, but I truly feel this way. After all, I have no right to infringe upon what people hold as their beliefs, morals etc. Sure, I will encounter people I don't agree with, but that's when the magical word TOLERANCE...

    Because I Just Don't Care...

    Yeah I don't have to practice acceptance...I just don't care about what other people do, so it ends up being the same as accepting. Me- "Oh you like to rape little girls?" Random **** head- "Yes it's my favorite pass time." Me- "Aight."
