Tolerance is respect for the free will of our brethren, who are all human beings of all latitudes. It is to admit them all as they are, with their opinions, cultures, thoughts, philosophies, religions, ways of being, of feeling, of acting, their tastes, dislikes, virtues and defects, etc.
Life can be understood and seen from many perspectives, so by understanding this logical basis, we will be able to tolerate others, because we know that each is a different world and that we are all full of flaws.
Non-tolerance is the critical judgment we make to everyone. We either have that judgment because we’re subconsciously pointing to ourselves. We don’t like to see our flaws reflected in others and that bothers us.
Tolerance is precisely not to be bothered by any of the characteristics of people, starting from the fact that one is also like that, or has thought about it, or has ever felt or done it.
Tolerance can be assimilated as consideration and respect for diversity, with full recognition of global plurality. Humanity has always longed for tolerance; even in the mass media there is always talk of tolerance, but this demonstrates the saying that “tolerance is easy to applaud, difficult to practice and very complex to explain”.
Tolerance today is often like one of the many words by style, the meaning of which has been completely misrepresented, such as democracy, peace, freedom, equality, love, God, family, intelligence, etc.
But tolerance cannot be confused with submission, since there are intolerable circumstances or facts, in the sense that they cannot be allowed for anything in the world, such as sexual violence, the attack on one’s own life, among others that must be duly reflected by each individual.
