One of the things I’ve been pondering lately is acceptance. At points past I’d been a bit of a pushover in my friendships. People would do something that was messed up and then use the ‘you have to accept me for who I am’ card. Trying to be open minded I would believe it.
Lately, I’ve grown up. Yes, I do have to accept people for how they are. However, that means something much different than many people think. I have to accept their right to be themselves without trying to change them (I had that part down ok). However, I don’t have to enjoy their company or allow them in my life.
I’m glad I’ve grown up enough to realize the difference. Besides, it allows me more time to spend on you cool people.
