It does not serve us to be apologetic for being ourselves.
Our tastes, preferences, attitudes, and beliefs, as long as they are not harmful to others, should be accepted and embraced as those things that make us uniquely who we are.
The same is true for the things, people, and experiences that do not resonate with us, that we are not drawn to, and, simply put, that we feel compelled to avoid.
Pretending to enjoy things, people, or experiences that we do not will not improve our life or the lives of those around us.
This is not an excuse to be rude, dismissive, or confrontational.
On the contrary, by accepting the truth about ourselves, being compassionate with ourselves about that truth, and by being confident and brave enough to live that truth out loud, we should learn to want the same for others.
