Thanks for sharing By 'people' do you mean your better half or friends or relatives? If it is your spouse to whom you are married or live with, you have to accept, if there is no way out If friend, one can accept may not; it depends If relatives or family members it needs many things to consider. May i know how is your relation with your hubby now?

thank you for response, well, i mean about those who we are in touch like relatives, friends, spouse.. well about my hubby, i try my best to stop hate for him so whenever he hurts me i just run to pray and replace my thoughts with praying to God.. that is the only way that i can continue specially when i say to God that you are witness i leave him for you... it make me calm and feel better. i do not know if was any way for him to stop his drinking habit which hurt me a lot!

I think most probably you will feel happy and peaceful when you pray to God.

Yes. I want people to accept as I am. that's why I am very few friends. And generally I don't want others to change just for me. i don't like that too. Everyone is different from each other. There is plenty of people out there and so no need to change them or change yourself. There is people who in many respect are just like me too. But, you can never expect everyone to be like you or you also cannot be like someone else. Its good to be live as you are and let others live as they are Happy mylotting

I accept my friends on what they are and they accept me on what I am. We all have flaws and differences and we need to accept that and be contented.

Be as you are ! Don't lived under the shadow of others. Each one is unique and special ! We don't need to live under the shadow of others , all we need to do is to be natural and to be righteous.

I always think that it is good to accept people what they are. I think most times we cannot change people and we can change only ourselves. I think when we accept people as they are, we will be happy in life.

right but sometimes make me think that if the one we are in touch is not that perfect human should we accept guilt of that person as what he or she is! just I think and that become a question.. I think when we are happy that we think about what we want and have live of our own on the way we want to be and we are...

Hi there! Well for me its hard to live pretending all the way. Why not to try to be yourself . It is a fact that we cannot pleased everybody. Everyone is unique. Even identical twins are different from each other in terms of behavior and personality. It is quite good to be yourself always and accept changes to learn as we grow old. It is a happier life i think to live with no hesitation with the compliments of other people. Accept things as they are and continue to grow .

if the person truly loves me then he can accept me for what and who i am. if there is anything to be changed about me, i believe it should not be done by force just to be able to please the other person. it is my responsibility to be better for him. as for the other person, i accept the imperfections but also it doesn't mean that because "we are who we are", and "other people should accept that", we will tolerate a bad behavior or attitude, they should always change themselves only for the better and not to please you or the people around them.

It all depends on the two characters . We sometime want to be better for the sake of the people we love , and we become better person for them . Take a mother for example , she become mature and give up somethings to be a better mother because of the love she have for her child .

I accept the things that I deserve. You don't have to change just to fit in. We should change for the better, for us to grow.
