Let’s talk ……
Accepting others doesn’t mean you have to agree with them, their life choices, their politics or the way they choose to live their life. It means you have to look past that and see the human being sharing space with you.
Every day I see/read/hear so much “hate speech” and it beyond upsetting. We, as a society, have forgotten how to relate to one another. We have lost our sense of civility.
People feel that they can say anything under the sun and it is allowable. Speaking one’s mind has become a “thing” and it has taken a turn for the worse. Keyboard meanness hidden behind a screen has given way to outspoken bullies who like to browbeat and intimidate people everywhere they go.
We need start to see others as human beings, looking beyond our own individual insecurities, to accept one another without personal bias.
Who knows, we might even learn something…about them and ourselves!
