Sometimes we cross lines by thinking we’re doing what’s best for someone instead of letting them make the decisions they feel are best. Its easy to have your a vision of how somone could or should be viewed, especially when its somone you care for. What you may dislike they may like or what they’re more confortable with compared to you shouldn’t mean you’ll always have the final say, and forcing that becomes controlling.
There aren’t an abundance of ways to go about situations like these. You either respect their views or you move on to like minded people. Not that I believe every situation should have an outcome such as that, but if the topic bothers you to that degree you can always leave. I just think thats an extreme reason to cut a friend off or end a relationship, being from America; we pride ourselves on differences. Instead of ending a relationship, why not capiaize on it?
This new understanding that you have with your family, friend or significant other can be a moment of growth for you and them if you allow the room for it. Sometimes we’re so wrapped up in what we think is right, we cant see the wrong. When you’re able to look within yourself and see the error of your ways, enlightenment is what awaits
