Instead, I hold my ground and explain my perspective as most have their own unique view on life. Without sharing my perspective on it, how else can I help others to understand why my views are different than their own? We don't have to agree on a topic, but that doesn't mean we can't talk about it.

If anyone has a problem with me, I'd much rather know about it, confront it, and work to resolve it than to have them telling the people who I converse with on a regular that they don't like me. What good does that do other than make OUR mutual friend feel both uncomfortable and feel the need to jump in on the bashing in order to appease your own personal feelings. I'll be 30 in 4 days; I am way to fucking old to be acting like a damn teenage girl.
