I really appreciate and respect your comments on the previous entry, but I have a bone to pick with some of you.
I have values for my life. These values are a result of the way I have been raised, as well as the way I have seen my friends live.
I know some of you think that I should pursue this opportunity, but I don't. My values are more important than that. Yes, I know, it might be the right person, or appear to be. I'm willing to take the chance that it is, just so I can preserve my values.
I am always telling people to "change for nobody". I am applying it to myself in the case of my personal values. There is no sense in messing it up now.
I didnt wanna pressure you into reversing your opinion on her I just wanted to raise the issue that "nobody's perfect". If what she has done cannot be undone then I agree with what you say.
Changing for nobody....I consider that selfish, not in this case but as a general viewpoint. I believe that you must be firm with your beliefs but adapting to different situations would stop you appearing to be stuck up and ignorant to those around you. Change is inherent in people, it makes them human.

I say, "change for nobody", because I am so sick of seeing people put on a different face just to make a new friend, get a new job, etc.
If it is something serious, then yes, I will change it. Something like not drinking, or not going to the clubs, is what I won't change. Just because I don't live that lifestyle means that I should try to just to meet someone.
