What a great post! I totally agree!
It just annoys me when people can’t accept someone else’s opinion, just because it is different to theirs. I am not saying that we all have to agree with each other. Not at all. I guess it would make life pretty boring if we would all think alike. But what is wrong in having a different opinion? Why do some people think everyone must agree with their ideas?
It is one thing to argue about a different opinion but getting to the point where you threaten others that is just plain sad… To say the least.
You don’t have to put a knife in front of me to threaten me. Your words can be enough. So choose! And choose wisely. I understand that not everyone tries to live after the three words acceptance, tolerance and respect. But I am still convinced that the world would be a much better place if people would incorporate them in their lives.
Before you speak, before you write, choose your words wisely. Think about what they might do to others and never underestimate the power of words.
