Am I too judgmental? How do I keep friends after I find out certain things about them?
I have a very hard time finding people I like, let alone friends. When I meet people, I like them at first, and we bond over likenesses, but eventually ugly things come out. Most of the the times these issues surround race (it’s amazing how prejudicial and racist people are. Even so called liberals.) sexuality, politics and social justice in general. I can deal with people of belief, as long as it’s not thrust upon me, and I can deal with people who don’t recycle and have little respect for animals (no abusers), but I cannot deal with such blatant prejudices against any form of otherness. It seems like so many people just don’t value other people, and instead value money and ideology.
Am I too judgmental? Can you associate and call people your friends who hold certain fundamental beliefs that you would/could never tolerate? I’ve never been good at compartmentalizing.
Should I just face the fact I will never have many friends and continue my antisocial ways?
