FIERCE Mantra of the Day: Acceptance

What's inappropriate to you may be perfectly acceptable to someone else. 

Within reason (let's not get into the obvious "unacceptable by any standards" context) how you perceive someone is usually based on your own moral code. If you don't like how someone lives or conducts their life, don't waste your time discussing them or what they do. What good will that do for you anyway? Will it make you feel better about yourself to belittle someone or talk about them?

If you can change your the way you see things and be  open to shifting your mindset, making the focused effort to realize that JUST BECAUSE someone conducts their life in a way that you would not doesn't make them a bad person. Perhaps, just maybe, you could learn something from them instead of making them the target of your daily gossip.

On the flip side, don't let someone's perception of you change who you really are. If you try to be what someone wants you to be or change the core of who you are to please someone else, you lose.

If someone wants to see the worst in you, they will no matter what. 

You don't have to like everyone or be friends with everyone just accept who you are, that people have different sets of standards, eliminate the people who only being negativity into your world (both online and IRL), and surround yourself with the people who bring out the BEST in you.

Are you happy with who you are? Accept who you are, faults and all. Be the BEST of your authentic self.
