By rejecting some and accepting some, we are limiting ourselves.
Acceptance helps us to respond; rejection enforces suppresion of "perceived non-desirables".
our "perceived desirables" on personality content are more often than not dictated by "fears of peer rejection" , social alienation and so on.
In my opinion, social interaction necessitates the wearing of a few masks sometimes.Due to collective aspects of judgements and so on.
However, the danger is in our trying to beleive that we are something we are not. Not many of us maturely discriminate between our projections and our reality.
And that does not help us ; "integrity" and "acceptance" are critical keys to growth.
life is not a problem to be solved ; it is a mystery to be lived , loved and experienced....
