A Personal Post

This is a personal post, just something I feel I’ve learned in my thirty-four years of life. Attempting to force or push people into believing what you believe by any tactics – shouting, screaming, constant debate, name-calling or even passive-aggressive behavior – really only pushes them away and actually does more to solidify their own beliefs than change them. I’ve found that quiet example, loving and respecting everyone, is far more effective. It may not always change someone, but at least it produces a relationship of mutual love, respect and peace. And those kinds of effects can be incredibly far-reaching.

    • True. I do know people who are, and I have so much respect and admiration for them, but it seems as though the majority of our society is not this way. Everyone thinks they are right and everyone else is wrong and it is their duty to prove it, often by overly aggressive means. I tend to believe that much of life is merely a matter of perspective – that what is true for me may not be true for someone else and vice versa.

      • I agree. We all have different truths based on our perspectives. In our society we are taught to look outside of ourselves for the truth. I think social media has contributed to the myth in our society that everything is good or bad, black or white, like or dislike, left or right.
