politics, sex or religion
Sometimes I get so swept up in the moment, I share my unpopular opinion here and I know I'm offending someone.
I even turned the comments on my last post- off, because I didn't want to fight or start a debate. I was just stating my paranoid opinion that my husband shares with me (laughing) and I was scared what might come next (and I don't have the energy to deal with).
To be completely honest, most of my best friends in this world are very far right. They are my rocks, and the people I trust completely. I don't want this place I call home to scare people off. I want everyone to feel welcome (well almost everyone, I can't please the world).
I don't want rage to swell inside you when you read my words... and I'm not sure if that's happened since my last post, but if it has- I'm sorry. Because if we were eating dinner together, I'd never in a million years bring up politics, sex or religion.
And if I did, I'd tread the water carefully and quickly drop the subject so we can enjoy ourselves despite our differences.
While on the phone with my Mama last night, I asked her opinion on the Boston bomb suspects... and she seemed pretty solid they were guilty. I told her our theory and I could hear the skepticism in her voice. She loves me regardless. And we quickly changed the subject.
She is one of the most tolerant, outspoken Mama's I know... and I see more and more just how alike we are.
