If you can fully and honestly accept others for who they are,
then, as a consequence, you accept yourself for you are.
If you do this, you accept the world for what it is.
Then the trite, “It is what it is,” becomes just bullshit.
The world is what we make it.
Your active engagement with the other has consequences.
One of those consequences is that this engagement and its choices
make you who you are.
As a result, you are always becoming who you are
while the world, in tandem, is becoming what it is.
This becomes an awareness that your choices, no matter how small,
can cause a butterfly effect that may change the world.
