You're probably wondering what tomatoes have to do with Acceptance.
Not everybody likes tomatoes, I am one of those people who happens to dislike them very much.
They're pretty to look at, I like what they can become (ketchup, tomato sauce, spaghetti sauce, salsa, soup) but I would never eat one, or even chunks of them in my food. I don't mind that other people like them, although I admit if my husband eats one, I won't kiss him for awhile.
So, you're probably still wondering what this has to do with acceptance. The way I see it, we all have different likes and dislikes, many qualities that make us different, the same and uniquely who we are. I've had people in my life who would get frustrated with me, simply because I'm picky. For some reason it drove them nuts, because I refused to eat certain things. I was thinking, why do you care what I eat??
My point is, does it matter that we're different? I personally like the differences that make up all the amazing people in this world. I would never want to meet someone exactly like me, how boring, there would be nothing new to discover. If I meet you and you happen to love tomatoes, I promise I won't try to get you to dislike them, I will just accept you the way you are and I hope you'll accept me too!
Have A beautiful tomato or untomato filled day!!
