I love quotes. Browse through my Pinterest “Quotable” Board and you’ll find a wide range of quotes, sayings, and words.
One quote or saying that I’ve been thinking a lot about lately is the one that goes something like “opinions are like a-holes, everyone has one” ? Well, my God. If that ain’t the truth.
Maybe I’m just being sensitive but it seems that everyone I encounter lately feels the need to express
shove their unwanted opinion down my throat. On any topic, anywhere, any time. I feel like I can’t have my own thoughts or ideas without being ridiculed for them.
I’m very opinionated. I have my quirks – no doubt about it. I can go on and on about certain topics like a broken record but I can usually realize when I need to shut up (unless I’m full of Miller Lite.)
I won’t purposely be-little you for disagreeing with me. I probably won’t think less of you either. I won’t try to convince you that plain cheese pizza is the best (which it is) when you’re a meat lover fan. Why? Because it’s pointless. And honestly, it doesn’t really matter (and.. it leaves more plain cheese for me.)
Don’t get me wrong, I think that everyone is entitled to their opinion. And I respect an individuals right to express themselves, their views and beliefs. But rude unsolicited advice/opinions/remarks are unnecessary. Don’t preach YOUR views just to tear down someone else’s
I can’t understand people who make it their life mission to disagree with you. You know that other saying: “Can we just agree to disagree?” Yeah, these people don’t know how to that so it feels like you are constantly beating your head against a wall of rusty nails.
So what is the solution? How do we deal with these people?
