Being Me

Don’t ask me

to abandon my principles.

Don’t ask me

to change my beliefs.

Accept me

for who I am

or just go

and leave me

be.

So easy in theory, but so hard in practice, Mike.

It’s how it should be. Acceptance is both the strengths and weakness of a person. If they accept yours, then never try to change theirs. It’s like the saying “I’d rather be hated for who I am, then be loved for who I’m not.” Such an important saying.

Great wording here because it has so much reality about it. Acceptance is everything, and if a person can’t handle that, they should walk away. Powerful and correct Hully. Great piece of writing.

Thanks so much, Dexter. Acceptance seems to be something that's in very short supply.
