Compromise

You don’t have to like me.

You don’t have to agree with me.

You don’t have to approve of what I do.

You don’t have to approve of what organizations I belong to.

You can have serious qualms about me in general.

You don’t have to be friends with me. That is your choice, just like it is my choice to do all of the above, and to be friends with you.

But, if you like me, and consider yourself friends with me, I ask this:

Please respect me enough to be kind to me.

I don’t care what you do or don’t do.

I don’t care what you do or don’t believe.

I don’t care what you think about my faith, or me in general.

I would like the same from you in return.

Don’t attack me, an individual person who has done NOTHING to you, for the sins of other people or my faith.

When you do that, you are no better than those you are judging. 


And worse, you are hurting a person you claim to be friends with. I hope that isn’t your goal.

I would add one thing: Don’t hide behind the guise of humor. “I’m sorry” is a lot more effective than “Geez, I was just kidding!”

**hugs**, my dear.
