Being tolerant is accepting differences. You don't expect others to think, look, speak or act just like you. You are free of prejudice, knowing that all people have feelings, needs, hopes and dreams.
Caring is giving love and attention to people and things that matter to you. When you care about people, you help them. You do a careful job, giving your very best effort. You treat people and things gently and respectfully.
Detachment is experiencing your feelings without allowing your feelings to control you. With detachment you are free to choose how you will act. You use thinking and feeling together, so you can make smart choices.
