There are two things I’ve heard you should never discuss in public: Religion and Politics. But rather we should stick to subjects like the Weather instead. But why is that? Why are these two subjects so taboo?
They are “off limits” because they are too controversial & polarizing, I suppose. Most people just want to “get along” with one another and the only way to really do that is to not rock the boat. The Weather is a safe subject…it’s common ground…it is what it is, regardless of anyone’s perspective, most people can accept one another’s opinions without it shattering their world view.
But life is too short, if you ask me. These topics are two of the most pivotal subjects in our livelihood. And if people can remain respectful of one another’s opinions as they do about the weather, and can engage in intelligent conversation, then why not discuss religion & politics?
I am not a combative person, believe me. I like the idea of people getting along with one another, but I also believe in being real with one another as well as oneself. If you can’t be real, then why be?
I’m a real person…I have feelings & fears, dreams & desires, flaws & imperfections, thoughts & opinions, and I am not opposed to sharing them. That is why I started this blog…to discuss all that matters to me.
So, what is my agenda? To share my point of view and create an open & honest discussion about matters such as these. I invite you to get to know the real me…discover what makes me tick and by all means engage in conversation with me!
Let me know the real you and help me learn what drives you internally… Don’t worry, I won’t bite. All those who know me already can attest to the fact that I’m a nice person. I truly desire to be understanding of those around me and the only way to do that is to seek knowledge. Knowledge about the things that matter most in life…and frankly the weather just isn’t one of those things.
