Live and let live

The phrase “live and let live” means to let other people live their lives as they see fit, without interference or judgment. It is a philosophy of tolerance and respect for the autonomy and freedom of others. It suggests that people should be free to make their own choices and decisions about how they live their lives, as long as those choices do not harm or infringe upon the rights of others.

This phrase can be used to encourage people to be more open-minded and accepting of others who may have different beliefs or lifestyles, and to focus on living their own lives in a way that makes them happy, rather than trying to control or influence the lives of others.

Our Three Things


Consent Culture

Consent Culture is the culture we all want. It is where no one ever touches you or takes anything from you without your consent.

It is based on the idea that all individuals have the right to make their own decisions about their own bodies and boundaries, and that respecting these boundaries is an important part of healthy and respectful relationships. In a consent culture, people are encouraged to communicate openly and honestly with one another, to listen actively and empathetically to one another’s boundaries and needs, and to respect the autonomy and agency of others.



Tolerance is the willingness to accept or tolerate differences in opinions, beliefs, practices, or behavior, even when one disagrees with or dislikes those differences.

Tolerance is often seen as THE key virtue in a diverse and pluralistic society, as it allows people with different backgrounds and perspectives to coexist peacefully and to respect one another’s right to hold and express different viewpoints. Tolerance does not necessarily imply agreement or approval of the beliefs or actions of others, but rather a recognition and acceptance of the fact that people will inevitably hold a wide range of beliefs and engage in a variety of behaviors.



The world is in a constant state of flux. New people are born, new technology is invented and new ideas become popular. It can be overwhelming.

All changes in our lives have the potential to add stress into our lives. Moving, beginning/ending a relationship, and starting a new job are considered some of the most stressful things that can happen. Yet sometimes we want our lives to change, so we make it happen.

And sometimes we don’t want our lives to change, but it happens anyway. Accepting change is not the same as embracing it. And it’s important to distinguish that when someone else choses to change their life, and it impacts us, we may not like it, but the only life we have authority over is our own.

Are we supposed to be fighting each other?

What happens when someone tries to make you do something you don’t want to do?

As a nation we’re more divided than we’ve ever been politically. Politics used to be how we could live together and cooperate. Working together we CAN produce something greater than the sum of our parts.

Coercion is when you force someone to do something they don’t want to do. When you coerce someone you make an enemy for life, even it’s for good cause. When you make someone do something they don’t want to do, at that moment you have enslaved them.

We’re all much happier when we cooperate.

Change is not good or bad.  It’s Just Change.

If society changes that doesn’t mean you have to. If society doesn’t change, that doesn’t mean you can’t.

Look at all the terrible things that were legal in our past. Society has tried to stop people from drinking, using recreation drugs, marrying the person they love and owning guns. We used to never use the internet, men all went to the workplace every day and women stayed home and were housekeepers. 

Things have changed. And people are allowed to change at their own pace, which may mean never. The only person who’s change you are responsible for is your own.

Icons of the philosophy

Dr. Martin Luther King

We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.

John F Kennedy

Tolerance implies no lack of commitment to one’s own beliefs. Rather it condemns the oppression or persecution of others.

Susan B. Anthony

No man is good enough to govern any woman without her consent.
