I hope we get to a certain point in our lives when we start accepting people for who they are. (Right now, I’m not there…just categorizing myself in the “we” )We can’t change it. They can’t change us. Therefore; we are either in it to win it…or out for the count. There is no bargaining, like Mexican marketplaces. People can’t just become someone that we want them to be….and in fact, often times will become even further the opposite of what we want them to be…so at what point do we stop telling people who they should be.
But we don’t. We still go around judging and telling others how they should run their life or what they choose is wrong, when really it is just wrong for ourselves. Why does it matter? Who cares what someone else bought, said or preaches? Does it really affect how we live our own lives? Only if we let it become our lives….. as we forget who we were before it. Stupid.
So instead of rejecting the people that we so call “judge” in our lives, we do the opposite. We “try” (with emphasis on TRY) to accept them for their good qualities, but still relishing in the bad, leaving behind false pretenses for friendships or relationships. We cannot see the good in people if we are constantly discussing the bad; therefore, if we cannot see past it, we should leave it behind us like Rainbow Brite in 1986.
Be true, be you…and engage in a little self therapy from time to time.
