Accept and respect are two ordinary words that we all know. They both might sound quite similar but there is a huge difference between accepting someone or respecting someone. For me accepting something/someone means we believe the beliefs or views of other person whereas respecting someone means we understand that the other person is an individual human being and we simply respect them for being who they are. We don’t believe in what they are saying or who they are but we just listen to them, give them freedom to speak and deal them with courtesy. And it is totally okay. For example I don’t like watching dramas of any kind at all as they don’t promote anything positive and most of the time everyone is crying, or shouting therefore I believe media is playing a role of slow poison for the youth. However my friends love watching dramas. So, just because for me it is time wasting it doesn’t mean everyone should stop watching dramas, it might serves as an entertainment for others. We don’t need to accept every thing. We are all human beings and each one of us see the world from a very unique lens. People can be very different from us and it is okay. We don’t have to push ourselves to believe in something we don’t want to. We do not need to accept in order to respect.
