If I do not want what you want, please try not to tell me that my want is wrong.
I may be your spouse, your parent, your offspring, your friend, or your colleague.
If you will allow me any of my own wants, or emotions, or beliefs, or actions, then you open yourself, so that some day these ways of mine might not seem so wrong, and might finally appear to you as right--for me.
To put up with me is the first step to understanding me. Not that you embrace my ways as right for you, but that you are no longer irritated or disappointed with me for my seeing waywardness.
And in understanding me you might come to prize my differences from you, and, far from seeking to change me, preserve and even nurture those differences
