Be friends with people who disagree with you.
Don’t get me wrong here, don’t be friends with people BECAUSE they disagree with you. I’ve cut people out of my life over disagreements. I’d imagine most of you have. It’s normal and it’s bound to happen.
What I’m trying to say is that you CAN disagree with people on big issues and still be friends. You SHOULD still be friends. After all, don’t we have some common ground as human beings? Can’t we see some sense in opinions that contradict our own? Can’t we look into an opponent and see the same good intentions that we have? What if you’re wrong?
Diversity of opinions is a beautiful thing. I’m not saying you should support people spreading hate speech, harassing people, stuff like that. I’m saying you should support your friends whose only mistake is having a different opinion than the one you have. They may be genuinely wrong in what they believe. They may be genuinely stupid. Who the hell cares?
If someone is doing nothing wrong, but simply THINKING something wrong, I don’t think that is grounds to ditch your friendship. Again, I understand that shit fucking happens. Just don’t deprive yourself of a good friend and that TRUE diversity in the free market of opinions over your ego.
