We Don’t Even Have To Like Each Other

Acceptance and tolerance

Is not about agreeing on everything.

It’s about respect.

And kindness.

Civility and decorum.

And being okay with not being the same.

We don’t even have to like each other

We just need to act and behave with dignity.

Being different is natural and to be expected.

Hate is a choice and an action.

  6. This is exactly what I used to keep saying to my ex husband after we divorced. “Let’s just be friends” “Let’s be civil for our kids”, but unfortunately he would never see it this way.


  7. Yes, for sure! Brilliant words…and it doesn’t hurt that we actually like each other too!


  8. With you on this one, but then you know that. So well said, my friend. ❤
