Not everyone is going to agree with Candace Cameron Bure's evangelical Christian beliefs – and she's okay with that.
"As much as you want to try and explain your position to people, sometimes at the end of the day it is not worth it," the former Full House star tells PEOPLE. "I need to invest my time in my family and not trying to please everybody or getting them to see my own point of view."
As a contestant on this season of Dancing with the Stars, Bure, 38, has garnered praise and criticism for her conservative beliefs and her "boundaries" that have left her modestly clothed and with fully-dressed partners (even when pro dancer Mark Ballas wanted to show off his abs).
