I Think That...

I think that if you are going to have an opinion that you ought to stick to it. I don't like people who have an opinion about something and they change it all the time. I have always been told that three things you shouldn't express your opinions about, sex, religion, and politics. I think the biggest reason is because many folks change their mind about their opinions.

Sex is a subject that we ought to keep private to ourselves and our mates. It is okay to have an opinion but we need to keep it private.

Now let's look at religion. They say you shouldn't discuss it because it brings up debate which can lead to fights. I don't think you should express your opinions about religion at work. This is not the place to discuss them. But I do think that if you want to sit down and talk religion and express your views in a neutral setting that that can be very interesting. It is always interesting to hear what people think about religion and church in general. Our world is changing and we need to talk about this more with our friends.

Politics is a very touch subject. I know many who it is hard to talk politics and express my opinion because they have their opinion and they think that theirs is the only right one. I have learned over the years to listen to others because sometimes they can shed new light on an important issue.

My mother-in-law was on the opposite side that Kelly and I are. She would vote a straight ticket for her party even if the devil himself was running. We didn't talk politics at her house because it would cause major problems. I loved her dearly and she was very good to Kelly and myself.

I do feel politics needs to be discuss and we need to voice our opinion but we must pick and chose the right times to share our opinions and with whom. Some have a closed mind and usually those are a lost cause. I have found that those who have an open mind are the best to discuss politics. You can learn things and when you both are able to share without bitterness you can learn things.

Kelly and I don't see eye to eye on many politic issues but we respect each other and we allow each other to express their opinion. I am not going to go into what we don't agree on but I can say we can discuss things and not get in a fight because we respect each others opinions.

Well that is what I think and I am sure you have your opinion too.
