Imposing moral standards on others

When we impose that others must conform to our idea of what is right and acceptable, we only show that we ourselves are unsure of our own principles.  Someone who is sure of himself allows others to be themselves.  Every person has his own ideology and it is plain arrogance to surmise that our own belief is the only appropriate alternative.  Being unstable in character causes a person to prop himself up and force others into his mold.  You learn more when you look into other perspectives and even develop yours in the process.  In a relationship, you don't demand that your partner must be a carbon copy of yourself.  After all, you don't get harmony when everybody sings the same note.
