Sunday Reflection – Bonus Edition

Everyone has their own views and opinions. I know I do. Understanding those differences comes from having conversations and establishing dialogue. In every family, there will be disagreements even among people who you love. I am a very black or white sort of person.

I do know I need to be more grayscale because that is where others are. You can appreciate others in the gray but it’s harder when it’s an either-or situation. Everything from politics to religion to sports to science fiction is deeply personal and moderating that passion can be good for everyone.

I need to work on this stuff. Life could be better if I do. Work requires being uncomfortable and a little conflict. Let’s see what happens.

This is something I must remember and strive for. It won’t be easy.

  1. I know Tony. I’m with you on this one. I live surrounded by people with strong opinions and guns. It gets a little scary sometimes. I have to remind myself “we are one” even when it doesn’t seem like it. Hang in there friend.

  2. It’s tough to accept some views. I would never bother to argue about sport, as it’s just opinion. Politics I find slightly harder not to argue about. Moral values? That’s when it gets tricky. I do have lines I don’t like to see crossed. The question then, is do I have the right to impose them on other people?
