Friendship and Disagreements
    #3476544 - 12/10/04 04:09 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

"I hope positing that one simple question does not take me off Santa Swams list of those that are elidgeble for Christmas time goodies and mailings."

While this quote may have been tongue-in-cheek; all-too-often people predicate friendship with agreement. Posters are much more likely to go after another poster whom do not like on a minor philosophical issue than a friend with whom they have a major philosophical difference.

In this writer's mind, one need not walk on eggshells to "preserve" a friendship. I do not need Swami clones or "yes men" surrounding me. On the inverse, recently a friend told me that we would have to part ways because our views on spirituality were too different. That is sad. Now, I understand that we do need criterion to accept people into our lives and confidence, and do naturally choose people with values that are important to us. The funny thing is, the friend making this statement and I have similar morals, but for different reasons.

Bottom line: Disagreeing with me does not earn one disfavor. Lying, violating a trust, being unreliable - these things can damage a friendship.

The proof is in the pudding.
