I get where you are coming from and i am not trying to criticise .. HOWEVER, lol, in the grand scheme of things, is it really important if someone derails a thread? People are just interacting with each other on a particular thread that may have nothing to do with the OP. They are working on their socialising skills. (if i was an Eskimo, i think i could sell myself ice/snow)
Take the tablets and come and see me in a week,
I get this. A person's view/opinion should never get shot down because someone else thinks they are better/smarter etc. Helping someone see something from a different perspective is not necessarily oppressive though.i hear what your saying. i suppose the point i was getting as is that i get so tired of having my views oppressed upon. I have people who think and believe they're wiser and smarter than me, try to convince me im wrong. it just hurts to have alot of judgement put on you for a belief of how i think my life should be run. and yes, open mindedness IS good to have, i just dont understand the obsession our nation has with it. it seems that so many people just wanna trash eachothers view points and then turn around and say others arent being 'open minded'. i almost see it as an excuse alot when someone doesnt know what to say when they disagree with someone.
Bear in mind especially on this site, we are the minority. We can take things at face value, give an opinion and leave it at that. N's enjoy (i think) taking apart the OP and analysing it because they seeing every eventuality of the senario given (again, i think). lol
Oh babe .. You just said the magic word .. dance.my thought is that i need to have my feet on the ground, but its good to dance around in different things as well. You need to know what you believe in and have a stand in that and then you can look at other things and see how they come into play in your life.
change is good and openning your eyes to the world around you. just have respect for others is really what im getting at. no respect=major irritation to me.
Again i agree with what you are saying. Respect means a lot to me as well. People just have different ways of showing their respect to another. Others don't have any respect at all. Their tough luck.
I'll just increase your medication darlingoops, i think i just strayed away from the point of this thread. just smack me, i totally went against what i said x/
oh well, some rules are ment to be broken
Lol .. You just said it yourself .. Rules are meant to be broken. That includes everyone else as well.
Just so you know, i am not trying to get on your case.
