You're making a thread about it, so it must be important.

I try to accept everyone for who they are but some people should change their ways for the better.

Very important.

If you are not accepted as who you are you won't live well or have a good time and life will be hell.

As someone who is disabled i have faced the stigma of those not accepting Autistic people in society and it has made it 100x harder to live.

People reckon acceptance is not a big deal but it matters alot.

I hate when society doesn't accept people some good examples are Homosexuals,Transgender,Autistic and disabled people in general who are not accepted are discriminated against and hated and get treated like second class citizens and have people shit all over them thinking they are superior.

In the end it's very important and anyone who says otherwise has most likely always been accepted by society and never had to deal with such a thing.

It's like that in most societies.

Personally i hate pretending to be normal and act as myself and when possible try to avoid being normal since i dislike it may.

People look down on me for that and it's pathetic it shows how pitiful society is.

I'm getting blue hair dye in my hair on thursday (i love the colour blue) and i pretty much can't wait for people to criticize me on a personal choice because it's not the norm /s

Lol, I don't think in western countries they don't care a lot. I know if I go to Vietnam, a lot of my family would perceive me as bad kid, aka a good for nothing since my hair is bleached an obnoxious hair. It's pink, lol. They stare at me like I'm freak.

But in Canada, I find myself completely normal. Nobody really says nothing but oh you have cool hair.

Yeah blue is nice hair. I always kinda wanna do blue or purple or something pastel like.

Society hates people like me, so it's safe to say it's not too important if society doesn't like me or not.

I learn one thing.. You cannot make everyone happy and be friends with everyone in the world. That is nearly impossible.. Even Jesus Christ himself have Enemies and he embraced them as a friend.

People going to not like you because of who you are.. That is not your fault! Its way of the world. Love thyself, accept yourself. Don't ever let anyone put you down and start hating yourself.

People will start spreading lies about you, while other support you and being a true friend with you. But there are two-face friend that are not true friend.. :/

I don't, and never have, cared about acceptance from others. People will either accept you or they won't. You don't control it, so why dwell on it.

There have always been a few hardy individuals who have abandoned society and, for example, moved to Alaska, built a log cabin, and lived off the land. Hermits are mentioned in quite a few historical documents. So it is entirely possible to live outside of society, although it is not especially convenient to do so. The fact that the word "hermit" exists indicates that even though these individuals have existed throughout the ages, they are seen as a minority and as somehow different than the majority of people. Probably by today's DSMV they'd be diagnosed as having some level of anti-social personality disorder. Reasons for living apart from society can vary greatly from individual to individual. Some move away because of religious reasons, others because they are on the run from the law, some simply don't like to be around other people, while others want to get closer to nature. Becoming a hermit does not necessarily mean one accepts oneself. Sometimes they view becoming a hermit as a means of repentance or self-punishment for perceived wrongs.

Being part of a society implies an unwritten contract that one will abide by the laws or rules of that society. This is why criminals lose their suffrage and are no longer allowed to vote or participate in making the rules the society lives under. Being part of a society does not always mean one is actually accepted by the majority of the individuals in that society. Generally speaking, if one does not create enough disturbances of a great enough magnitude to come to the attention of those enforcing the law, they seem to be assumed to be part of the society they live in.

Personally, I find it interesting that "shaming" is coming back. One would normally think of shaming in terms of "The Scarlet Letter" or the old puritanical shunning. However, with the internet, shaming individuals or even dogs that ate the mail seems to be a thing.

maybe sounds great in some areas but you mostly would like conflicts...
Either it being criticism, opinions, views and so on.

Sure thing!
But then again about "I do what I feel is right" can become a problem (really depends on yourself?).
