They were a couple of things while I was growing up I never thought in a million years I’d attest to or even end up doing. Things that seemed weird, unethical, too shabby, etc. But as I grew older, some of those things I am not doing, but I have come to terms with some of them and stopped being too judgy about them.
I became too careful with using the “God forbid” phrase, not because I don’t trust myself but because some things I had to understand why they happen or why people do them. Part of this is accepting people for who they are or accepting situations you have no control over.
Today you are against women wearing trousers or leg chains, then tomorrow you are doing these things, you can’t marry a guy the same age with you, tomorrow you find yourself dating someone younger, or you say you can’t date someone younger and then it happens and you can’t control the feelings. It’s okay to be against these things at some point, that is life we outgrow things and beliefs.
This is also related to wanting things and being eager to have them, you can’t afford them or get access to them, we become sad and disappointed, then we eventually get these things in the future and they are meaningless and not that interesting anymore.
Life is about growth and change which are constant. You either outgrow things or accept them, some may be against your religion or personal beliefs, but it doesn’t mean you should hate people for it, some people may not understand, and some won’t just agree. It is okay too not to ever agree, it doesn’t make you a bad person, just face your beliefs and opinions and let others do theirs too.
The world is filled with different people, people with different ideas, thoughts, opinions and their personal facts that they agree with, we all can’t be the same, if we are, I bet the world would be colorless and boring.
Let’s respect people’s opinions as we do ours. It brings more peace within and also room for accommodation.
