Why can’t we just appreciate each other for what we are? Why can’t we just see each other as humans rather than judging based on skin colour or social status?

Recently I was hurt by another person’s words when they told me they didn’t like a certain colour of people. It is up to ME and YOU to not judge people, first of all. It was hard not to judge, when someone says that to you. But it all comes down to being the person that your dog thinks you are. (lol).

I’ve met my fair share of closed minded people, but when you come across people that make you sad, make you upset or make you frustrated, simply remember..that YOU are aware, YOU are the one who’s open minded and YOU accept all types of thoughts…and those thoughts also include negative ones. Be happy that you are not the type of person that discriminates, be happy that you aren’t the one making someone else sad. There is nothing that anger ever fixes. (well it might temporarily, as anger brings passion and sometimes honesty) but for true solutions to such mind boggling situations, simply, explain your side of things. Give the other person something to think about. Because the only way we will bring change into this world is by sharing our positivity, sharing our opinion and influencing others to think differently.

That person hurt me because I felt sorry for their unfortunate thoughts, today they hurt one, tomorrow they will hurt more…..unfortunately. Lets hope more people will stand up for what is right.
