...

I won't change or define myself according to the culture or ethnicity of who I am with... I don't feel the need or desire to change who I am to fit into what someone else deems acceptable and I would never expect that in return... It's OK to be different, there's value in accepting yourself as you are and doing the same for someone else... Hopefully, if you stop focusing on your differences, you will find the more meaningful things that you have in common and these are the things you need to hang on to... This creates the necessary independence where needed, and the closeness where It's most important.

Thats very nice Sri,
We waste so much time running after differences, imposing our beliefs on others etc, that we really miss out the great common things which we otherwise would have used for a great relationship...But may be that makes us human beings, very unique creature..
Have a nice weekend

Haha, that's funny... No the quote is from my boyfriend, Sri, about me (Doris May) ... He didn't quite mean it as a compliment, but I sure as hell took it as one :P
