Tolerance: In my opinion it means that tolerance is a vital element of our society. We tolerate someone's defectives such as our neighboor's as they tolerate ours in order to live all together. However, it is important limits to be taken so as mutual respect and understanding to be the main goal to our communication.
- Accepting diversity
- Accepting that the opinion of others might be different
- Appriciating that every individual culture is different
- Peace begins with tolerance and respect for everyone
- It doesn't mean that you give up what you believe in but that you don't want everybody to believe in the same
Tolerance: Tolerance came out to the society with the enlightenment and human rights. Taking under consideration that societies depend on the initial ideas of enlightenment the word tolerance can be expressed as permissiveness and mutual deference between people which came from the respect of freedom of expression. However, that does not mean that any exploitation to that right is desirible by offending other people.
Tolerance: Even though in the beggining the word Tolerance made me think of the tolerance between people with different colour, it seems to be much more. Possibly, it is refered to anything which is different, such as religion, education, even the notions of a person. As the time is passing by, I understood that although we have features that make us different from each other such as our style, our music preferencs, there are more important things that make us reunited. For example when a person is as sensitive as we are or humor. Humor is a vital element.
Being tolerant gives the opportunity to discover not only the person, who is different from us, but also ourselves due to the way we handle new situations.
How do we wish to be accepted if we do not give a go being tolerant or accepting the person who stands next to us?
