Acceptance

After days spent contemplating over things and analyzing life and human nature, an abundance of epiphanies hit me over the head.

I'm growing curious as to why some people struggle to realize that equality, especially in this age, is necessary for a truly giving, sharing, whole society.

Equality.

No matter your gender, your race, your sexual orientation, your religion, the color of your eyes.

It shouldn't matter.

not mine


Why do we need to be the same in order to accept one another? Why do people judge one another on something they haven't experienced?

We have to grow together, as one unified earth. But in order to do that, we have to accept that not everyone will be the same. There will be differences. We will disagree.

But there are things, some small things, that we can almost all agree on. The power of love, or something as simple as kittens are cute.

In order to make a change in the world, we have to accept that people will disagree, people will be different. We can't always be the same.

 Other cultures are not failed attempts at being our own. Religion, as long as it's not hurting anybody, can be practiced freely. Marriage equality, is it that hard to realize that we're all human, and we all want to love? Women and men can be whatever they want to be. A slut is not a lesser human being than you.

Why can't we all just dig down and accept... all of this stuff. It shouldn't matter. Why do we all have to be the same in order to be treated the same?

We need acceptance.

  2. I think it's really easy for us to slip into that judgemental state because it's somewhat human nature, but you're right - we really need to be more accepting of everyone's differences. And most importantly, even though we may not condone their actions or ever uptake their way of life as our own, we should still see them as real human beings, with just as many rights as us.
