"You cannot convince people to love you. This is an absolute rule. No one will ever give you love because you want him or her to give it. Real love moves freely in both directions. Don’t waste your time on anything else."
— Cheryl Strayed, Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar (via seulray)
Being an atheist is ok. Being an atheist and shaming religion and spirituality as silly or not real is not ok.
Being a Christian is ok. Being a homophobic, misogynistic, racist, or otherwise hateful person in the name of Christianity is not ok. Being a reindeer is ok. Bullying and excluding another reindeer because he has a shiny red nose is not ok.
Can’t we all just learn to love and appreciate one another?
