    If any kind of relationship not just marriage practice tolerance we’d all be able to get to harmony more often or at least get along better, lol.

  2. Tolerance is rare. And precious. And I believe we would all be better off if we made a habit of giving it – and receiving it too.

    Tolerance is, for me, one of the most beautiful gifts we can give another. Sadly, it is not one of my strong suits but I am a work in progress. Each time I am tempted to judge or be smug in a certain direction I try to rein in my urge to let my opinion ride roughshod over another’s vulnerability. Great post , we all need to be reminded of the elements that help humanity move towards harmony. 🙂 Linda (Visiting from A-Z Challenge 2017)

    Nice thoughts shared here Kalpanaa. Rooting for your novel – go for it. 🙂

    Tolerance is a basic requirement if a diverse society is to survive long term. Unfortunately it is also becoming rarer and rarer. We seem to be losing all sense of respect for any other POV’s apart from our own. Faith-based bigotry and prejudice do not help.

    This is the essence.Divorce tolerance in India is much better now than before .But its still a struggle.We automatically categorize and isolate women ,bbut men are more accepted.My parents are divorced and I know the questions I had to battle too !A long journey indeed ,but life is a struggle

    Once divorce was considered a crime irrespective of the exploitation involved. Things are changing but still slowly. Good wishes for your Novel.

  8. Tolerance is the most important quality one can imbibe or teach, especially so in our country. Tolerance of any kind, be it religious, personal, or towards society helps to bring down a lot of social evils that still exist in the 21st century. “Live and let live”. If only everyone respects and understands another’s position…it’s not impossible. Excellent post!!!

    Yup tolerance is pretty important in a divorced woman’s life in India where folks are partial to a divorced man saying “his wife was no good” but for a divorced woman its always she has been left by her husband! Either ways- the wife is in a bad way!
    Loving your posts Kalpanaa as I can empathise with them heartily! Cheers

    We can all do with a bit more tolerance in our lives. Happy A-to-Z-ing.

  11. It is one of the things that makes me sad about our super plugged in world. It seems like people are even quicker to show intolerance in social media and on comment threads. I know it is not just in our electronic communications but also our personal connections where intolerance still exists. It just feels louder sometimes. I am sorry you have experienced so much of it. Divorce is a difficult journey without that added on top. WeekendsInMaine

  12. Interesting post. Tolerance and understanding sometimes seem to be in short supply. I think the best we can do individually is try to live by example and hope tolerance spreads like a brushfire through the rest of humanity.

    Tolerance is something this world is certainly falling short in. We are so impatient and we feel entitled to having everything and having it NOW. I’m trying hard to be more patient but there are certainly trials along the way that test us (especially things like divorce!)
