“It would behoove us to suppress the minutiae….”~Diane Keaton in “The Other Sister” [1995].

Okay, it appears that some people are having a bit of trouble with how to interact as well as react to others online. And it is causing grief to dramatic proportions.

So gather on ’round kiddos! I’m about to re-educate some of you. And others I will prick the consciences. Hopefully it will stick.

There are no two people who are the same. There’s a lot of talk about whether or not two people are a perfect match. Well, I don’t believe in that. Compatible maybe! Friendly? Yes of course. But there are no two people alike. And we’re not even going to discuss the topic of twins.

Everyone in this world has their own ways of living their lives. They grew up believing in what they believe. No, don’t get me wrong already. This isn’t about religion specifically either. This is about opinions & assholes. 

Each person has their own way of doing things from day until night. Some do it fast, others take their time. Some get down and dirty and others just do it.

The Internet is a wonderful place to meet people. I’ve said that before I think in previous posts. Yet we all have to understand that not necessarily your ways are going to be their ways. Your beliefs and opinions are not always going to be theirs either.

How and what you do in your country, isn’t always going to be the same for another person in another country. That’s just the way it is.

So it is totally ridiculous for one person to be claiming that they are “friendly, sociable, and love to meet people” when all they are doing when trouble arises and they hit that first bump in the road is trying to swerve the others into their ways, their beliefs, their opinions. It just doesn’t happen!!

Society has a very difficult and bad habit of taking more than they give too. One cannot continually take and take, and not be expected to give in return. That is called being selfish. How are you supposed to live this life of being friendly and sociable when all you are doing is sucking the life out of someone by taking everything. And you expect them to be nice to you? Nope! Doesn’t happen that way!!!

So people, I verily say unto you: Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, over?!?

Understand that people in this world will not go along with you 100% of the time. That is their choice and their right as a human being. You don’t have to like it, but you will eventually have to respect it.

It would actually do you far much better to LEARN the difference and find out their side of things of why they do it differently than you. Still, you don’t have to agree. But it will become far more beneficial to you if you do so, and these drama moments will not happen as frequently.

You say you wanna be friends with this person? Great! One can only benefit with having friends, and having a true friend is even better.

Wanna know how to do that? Get to know EVERYTHING you can about that person. You never know what all good and commonalities you may end up having deep down. Especially on a personal level. And this is exactly the reason why I am best friends with those whom I consider “my best friends” because I took the time to get to know them so much and so well.

You standing there with your backs turned because you don’t wanna hear what they have to say, especially since they disagree with you is absolutely immature. Particularly if you are an adult.

But we all know that adults act like children sometimes, and that’s for another time.

If you are in a position where you just will not bend to see their side of things but you want to remain in contact with them? There’s only one thing you can do:

AGREE TO DISAGREE.

If both sides can do that. You’ll be better off. You’ll be armed with the knowledge that perhaps you shouldn’t be bringing that kind of topic up again… until you are adult and mature enough to listen.

Nobody is saying that you cannot speak up for yourself. Or that you can’t feel how you feel or think how you think. Everybody is allowed that human right.

And if you just can’t get all of this in your head to where you learned something? Just remember this………

Opinions are like assholes. Everybody’s got one.
