"Although I speak from my own experience, I feel that no one has the right to impose his or her beliefs on another person. I will not propose to you that my way is best. The decision is up to you. If you find some point which may be suitable for you, then you can carry out experiments for yourself. If you find that it is off no use, then you can discard it." Dalai Lama...

Over the last few years I have come to know myself better and have come to like myself more - most days ;-)).
In my fifty first year, I have a confidence about my life choices, that I have not had all my life.
I know who I am.
I am learning to accept myself - with all my failings and quirks and habits ;-))
I am a liberal minded person who can get on with just about anybody.
It doesn't matter to me if you have pink hair that has never seen a brush or if your are immaculately coiffed, your appearance is of no concern to me, it doesn't tell me about the person inside, so, I am more than willing to get to know you without making any judgements.

We may find common ground in our educational philosophies or our parenting styles. We may have a common interest in literature or film. There are many ways we can connect, for varying levels of  friendship.

We may, in fact, do things very differently and yet still have the opportunity to learn from each other.

 You may not want to make the choices we do and no one is saying you should - you must do what is right for you. Accept that others are different and allow them the freedom to follow their path without judgement. 

Being different is not bad, it is just different!

And as Emily and I like to say " different is good !!! "
