You know when you just have one of those awesome nights with friends filled with laughter, food and great conversation? Well tonight was one of those nights (it’s 1am as I type this) And you know what I absolutely adore about people? The fact that we all have our own opinions! How utterly boring would life be if we agreed with each other all the time, dull with a capital D.
As you know from this page and my Facebook page I have pretty strong opinions about chemicals being harmful, yes I always do research before I make my mind up about something but you can bet that nine times out of ten there is research with opposite findings, like coffee, some say it’s good, some say it’s bad. I believe certain research because the findings resonate with me, if something sounds right and sits well with me then I agree with the research and my mind is made up. But if you agree with the opposing research then great, we can have a robust discussion about our beliefs and not get angry at each other for having differing opinions. I personally always find it facinating to understand the thought process of others and I’ll always listen to an opinion, I won’t necessarily agree but I’ll hear your point of view.
I have lots of friends and family who agree with me and we support each other, but I also have lots of friends and family who don’t agree with me, does that annoy me? Hell no! I respect everyone’s decision to live the way they choose, of course I’ll offer my thoughts on certain subjects but I’ll never force my beliefs on anyone. Our lives are our own to live the way we choose.
I guess I’m just having one of those ‘I’m alive and life is awesome’ moments. Having opinions and robust discussions are an amazing part of life which I will never tire of, cheers to your opinions, regardless of whether they are the same as my own.
