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

    The Acceptance of Others It was once said by Barbara Jordan that “We as human beings must be willing to accept people who are different from ourselves.” Jordan could not have been closer to the truth. From race, to religious views, to ethnicity, no two people are the same. Without acceptance, people turn on one another. We must accept those who are different from from ourselves because if we do not feelings get hurt as shown in “Without Title”, violence occurs as does in “The Wife’s Story”, and wars…

However, it is solely due to the unpredictability that change promotes in our life that has overtime allowed the connotation of change to become negative. We should…

    For many things, change is inevitable. According to an excerpt tittled “Accepting Men as They Are”, written by Albert Ellis, men are sex- orientated, selfish, and workaholics. Ellis believes that it is useless to try to change a man because that is how they are built. There is no point in changing because it simply cannot be done. That could be true, however, this passage was written in 1979, about three decades ago. The author had another perspective because he lived in a different generation. Men…
