Is It Me…?

I’m not perfect. Never said I was.

I make mistakes. I’m human.

I have a different opinion from you. That’s okay.

I have a different outlook on life. I have different life experiences from you.

I have a different political view from you. I have a different view of the world.

I am different from you. And that’s ‘bad’?

Is it?

I differ in how I see life. Does that make me a ‘bad’ person?

I walk a different path from you. Does that make me a ‘bad’ person?

I make mistakes. Does that make me ‘bad’?

I do things differently from you. Does that make me ‘bad’?

I question your opinions, your views. Does that make me ‘bad’?

No.

Your opinion of me makes me ‘bad’. 

Your inability to accept others’ differences makes me ‘bad’.

Your need to conform makes me ‘bad’.

Your insecurities make me ‘bad’.

Your ‘perfection’ makes my ‘imperfection’ bad.

Yet last time I checked. You were human too. You make mistakes too. You have a different outlook on life too. You have different life experiences too. You are imperfect too.

We are all imperfectly perfect.

I am NOT bad because I have a different view of the world we live in.

I am NOT bad because I ask you to accept responsibility for your actions.

I am NOT bad because I am not willing to accept your view on religion, race, colour, creed, politics, status, success, love, colour schemes, diet, exercise, weight, books….

I am merely me. You are you. I am different. You are different. I am intrinsically good. So are you.

When you judge others based on your ‘ideals’ (and they are just that – your ideals) realise that people may be judging you based on your ideals too.

Judge less.

Tolerate more.

Hate less.

Love more.

Blame less.

Forgive more.

Criticise less.

Thank more.

I love you. I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank You!

Namaste.
