It's not a matter of trying to be different. It's about being yourself. Be who you are, and let "the chips fall, as they may". At the end of the day, not everyone is going to like you. I can guarantee it!
I should apologize to everyone for being so sporatic when it comes to answering in a timely basis. (spending time in forums)
Been real busy starting everything all over again.
I'm just saying that it seems to me that the more we attempt to NOT be like everyone else the more we are like them, but in a different way.
The more we HATE something; the easier it is to be consumed by it.
Kinda like rebelling against rebellion. Wageing war against war mongers. Spanking a kid for hitting some other kid ?
The greater we try to be different the more we become the same.
aka-dj stated it correctly earlier ... and if and when we do that... that is a good thing! But that is much harder to do that it sounds like. If everyone could just do that, honestly; their own lives would be such a better place for themselves.
He knows the end from the beginning, and your very thoughts and intents. If anyone is going to be disappointed, it will most likely be yourself. Once you see who you were meant to be, but didn't quite make it.
Your philosophy disgusts me, I am offended that you would press your rediculous beliefs on this community. People are only allowed to post scientific assertations or Darwin theory in the religion and philosophy forum. I hope this retoric gets flagged.
That is true! BUT ;;; When we see things in others that we hate the most ??? If we are willing to look withinside ourselves ? we can usually see that in some abstract way; or (not so abstract) we are guilty of the same things though "WE" aren't as obnoxious with it as "THEY" are. When we do that ! "WE" can put up with them a little better.
BUT as you say, it is easire if we just focus on the positive. And that other stuff isn't there ..... until they bite you again.
Well, you can generally find something good in that person that has a trait that you hate. I really don't think it means you have the same bad trait. Liars for instance. If some one tells a lie about you, that doesn't mean you lie too.
Some times, you can live your life in a way that gives them no opportunity to bite you.
I was reading a threat started a while ago (and since then discontinued) about 'the ideal human' and was intrigued by the responses. I really enjoyed the topic and was wondering what kind of input some of you hubbers...

Why is it that Christians believe that Buddhists, Hindus, Pagans, Native Americans, etc. are all wrong in their beliefs and that they'll all go somewhere horrible when they die? Why can't we just accept that other...
Lately, people have been getting more hate for being gay/lesbian than usual. In my opinion everyone is equal on the inside. You can't really help who you like. When you fall in love, you can't really just tell yourself...
