That which we persist in doing becomes easier, not that the task itself has become easier, but that our ability to perform it has improved. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

When I published “How Do You Feel About It?”  some folks responded with, “Easier said than done.” 

To which, I somewhat flippantly responded with “Practice, practice, practice.”

Of course, you were right to say so. It is easier said than done.

And there exists, a line in the sand for each of us.

For example, I support the Women’s movement. It made us persons under the law.  It made us equal to men.

But should I impose that upon women who want to be submissive to their husbands?

Isn’t it about letting women decide for themselves?

I do understand that it’s impossible to respect someone’s custom if it violates our core values. For example, I’m never going to agree with honour killings!

We’re not perfect. Imagine how others view us in the western world:

promiscuous

Greedy

Gluttonous

self-absorbed

For those beliefs that do no harm, I want to be more accepting.

And that takes practice, practice, practice!
