Accept Your Friends for Who They Are

I grew up in New York, and am one of those people who will tell you what I think and appreciate that honesty in others. 

Friends with opposite or differing views help stretch us and our way of thinking, challenging us to think outside the box.

Case in point is when I am hanging with a friend who has a very different view of life than I. Our differences are more than our commonalities and we don't see eye-to-eye on many things, yet I love and respect him for who he is. 

It's when we accept our friends for who they are that the connection deepens and the friendship blossoms into a free exchange of ideas and experiences. 

Wishing you a delicious day,
