Opinion. It can almost be a dirty word. It can be a difficult thing to speak. Being opinionated, and firm in your belief can offend, and even hurt others at times. I know I’ve been writing some VERY opinionated posts. Ones that may have lost or gained me a few readers. I do not write these posts for sensationalist purposes, or to purposefully offend anyone. I write them because I believe them. They apply to me and my life, and my choices.
I hope that my readers, my friends, my family all know that no matter how opinionated or controversial this blog may be at times, I strongly respect the right of others to disagree, and to make their own choices. I cannot, and should not ever be dictating other’s beliefs, that is not right. If there is a disagreement with my words, I welcome a lively discussion on the matter, and the challenge of reevaluating my thinking. I would love to receive a dissenting comment in public, than be despised in private. If I am never challenged, I can never rethink or defend my thoughts. I am at risk of a dangerous complacency, and no matter how painful the challenge is, no pain no gain, right? Readers, please challenge me.
To all my readers, my friends, my family, my facebook friends.
I know I am not always right, and I am not afraid to be wrong.
