Acceptance Is Not A Choice
"We are all different. We are all wired differently. We see the same things differently. It is the "human" experience. I like sharing it with others!"
We are different because of each individual's circumstances. There are cultures in our own town, even in our own family. Values are totally different from one to another...but there is exactly where the fine line comes through.
Acceptance is not a choice you need to learn to accept laws and social standards in order to live in a world where "you are not alone"; unless you become a solitary person...away from civilization. You could also have under your power others that could become your slaves and you do not have to accept them just make them deny their existentialism.
Crime comes from those who do not understand that acceptance is not a choice. These are those which commit illicit actions; they are the unlawful; the illegal that a lawyer must be on their sides.
People have their own spirituality, soul issues and flesh properties which brings this "individuality" to flourish. The personality of each one of us and behavior varies one from another and we have to accept ourselves as "unique"...but we have to accept others also in order to coexist, survive and live.
I love the quote from the illustration posted: "Individuality, don't be afraid to be different ". This is with what I have been dealing with since I was 19 years old and started to work as a teacher. I also have been trying to teach, to whoever and wherever, that:
rights ends when others rights's begin.

Social crisis comes from those who do not accept differences and want to dig into the throat of others their own choices and of course we have the right to accept whatever we consider, but just have consideration in the fact that others could be affected by our choices.
The table below has concepts listed versus concepts which I have seen bring depression, confrontation, delinquency, wars, aggressiveness, lack of tolerance, low self esteem, and other social crisis' the world is having.
