A lot of you already know I’m crazy shy, very quiet, and not a fan of conflict. Well that also means I don’t like expressing my opinion very much… simply because as opinions go there is always someone that is going to disagree with them. Some people don’t take into consideration the other person’s feelings when they disagree with them. — Which in reality is what I try to stay away from. Ugly conflicts. The kind that take a turn towards nasty & hurtful.
Usually I don’t share too many personal opinions or thoughts that could be considered controversial. However sometimes there are things that ignite a fire in me, so to speak. I’m passionate for the underdogs, the oppressed, and the mistreated. — That’s just how I am. That’s also when I will speak up. When It involves something I feel passionate about.
I shared a link on Facebook about the new rules Isis has for their women, (they’re horrible, of course.) and mentioned that although people feel there is a war on women here in America, I think that’s putting it too strongly. I don’t think we have it bad here in America. — Someone disagreed with part of that. — Their stance was that I shouldn’t base “bad” off of the circumstances of others because feminism is for all women & we have issues here. — I understood their point & didn’t totally disagree. However, I stood by my position that despite what issues we may have here, we don’t have it “bad.”
** I said all this to say that I am proud of myself. 🙂 I don’t like to enter into conversations that could result in an ugly conflict. Lol & ya just never know. However, I put all that aside, sucked it up, and defended how I felt. — It felt good by the way! 🙂 I’m always so afraid to do that… but it felt really good. — I have a bad habit of feeling like my thoughts don’t matter or that I’m going to sound like a complete idiot when I try to respond… or that I’m going to get my feelings hurt. & that’s enough to keep me quiet. It usually does. — So I’m really proud of myself! 🙂 **
Just thought I’d share that with you guys! :))
