Coexistence may be with nature, a person, living things, family, a group, communities, with larger groups, and nations.
I may choose to coexist with a person or others, or I may find myself coexisting through no choice: by birth, family, play, work, or cultural and national circumstance.
Coexisting peacefully does not require I coexist harmoniously. I may rail against those I coexist with, I may oppose their views and actions, peacefully. I may object with all my strength to their actions, assertions and assumptions, peacefully. Coexisting peacefully is not a state of weakness, naivety, or subjection. Coexisting requires I make every effort to engage with those I choose or find myself with, peacefully.
