From ancient times our society has thought for what she believes in and victories have made us what we are today. Democracy has given us the right to a personality and to make our own decisions, independent from anyone or anything else.
Every person, in its essence, is different and unique and, although a well known fact, it comes harder, day after day to accept others. It is simple for us to embrace the things that we have in common with another individual, and at the same time reject the differences.
From childhood we are educated as not to judge what we dislike and to be as open minded as possible. Wether we are or we are not able to accept the person standing next to us is a debatable subject. Personality plays a major part in nowadays society and it is unli
kely to meet a person who is not trying one way or another to prove that he is stronger, smarter or even more capable of doing something than anyone else.
As we have learned at psychology, in high school, there are distinguished four types of personality:
- sanguineous (those who tend to always be joyful and enthusiastic);
- blustering (people that have a native tendency towards thinking they are always right and not accepting a different opinion);
- melancholic (the type that spends part of his life mourning for lost times);
- phlegmatic (people that go through life without getting involved).
But I think we all have come to acknowledge that we can find in ourselves a part of each and every of these three types of personality.
As we grow older we are faced with the simple truth; no matter how different or alike we are, we all want the same thing: recognition for our work and a happy life.
Maybe not all of us have the same perception over happiness, and we may not all achieve our goals, but, as long as our differences don t interfere with anyone else's' lives, I can t see how own opinions can affect another person.
To sum up, I must say that accepting the person standing next to you for what she is, is a mere proof of adulthood and wisdom.
