Accepting others is a very important part of life. Especially the way they are. If you can't learn how to do that then you will miss out on a lot of friends in life.
Life is hard enough and when you have to try to "fit in" the cliques of life, it makes life much harder. When you go to school you always have to worry about the way you look or how you walk or who your friends are in order to "fit in". If you don't have a model body or an "Abercrombie and Fitch" boyfriend/girlfriend you don't really fit in with the so called "norm".
However, it is hard sometimes to accept people. If someone looks kind of funny or talks weird most people's first instinct is to walk away and not talk to them. But if you just give that person a chance, you never know, they could become one of your best friends.
Furthermore, if more people accepted others by what was on the inside the world would be a much happier place. I believe this would cause less fighting in the world, less fighting in school, and over all more well being. So if accepting others the way they are can not be established in our society I believe people will miss out on a lot of enjoyable things in life.
The first step in accepting others is to accept yourself for who you are and not who you think you want to be because most of the time who you think you want to be is who other people have made you think is "in".
