Hi my name is Lisaellen I'm a member in the Bi polars support forum and just would like to say hats off to you for being a great Uncle. I once heard that prejudice is taught whether its environmental, social or relational a young baby does not understand these differences until bias is taught. Everyone has some sort of bias within them and its up to us as individuals to challenge these bias within us, to check ourselves so to speak. To truly love and accept someone we have to remove ourselves from only looking at the outside in and we need to learn to look at the inside out. Its okay not to understand certain choices but its not okay to become bias towards another choice. Keep doing what you are doing; trying to understand, love and support your niece. Well done...

SmileSmile i liked your comments a lot, how much nicer is it, to live a life without bias, than to go around feeling hateful......we're all equal anyway SmileSmileSmile
