I believe it is important to accept everyone. Not everyone is going to agree with how you view the world and you are to respect that. Life is so much better with an open mind. But everyone has their own lessons, so I am no one to judge. I just try to keep an open mind and remember that everyone deserves to be treated with love. Love is vital. You are trying to figure out who you really are. There is no need for someone to try to attack you. If someone does act disrespectfully towards you, I suggest you act respectfully. Treat others the way you want to be treated. Also be careful of what you say and you never know what effect you will have on someone else. Everyone acts like words don’t hurt, but they do. Communication is important in all types of relationships. You really don’t know much about how you view things due to lack of experiences. While some teens have many experiences, some have little to none. You never know what someone has going on or been through, so don’t judge. Be open to love and love others. It’s important for everyone to feel like they have a friend. I ask that everyday you are nice to at least one person. It really makes you feel good. A couple days ago, one of the secretaries at my school told me I had to go back to class to bring joy to people’s lives. I’ve decided that will be my mission. Being happy, acting happy and treating others happily are all part of achieving true happiness. Bring joy to someone. Make their day.
