How do you define hypocricy? Oftentimes I find myself in situations where I don't agree with what people are saying during a conversation. Rather than speak up and tell them that I disagree with what they are saying, I just stay quiet and listen. I don't think that every subject is worth debating or confronting but I am sometimes bothered by the fact that people are probably assuming that I agree with them if I don't correct them. Do you always tell people how you feel during conversations or do you sometimes remain silent and let people assume what they may? Where do you draw the line between being non-confrontational and being hypocritical?

If I am asked for my opinion I will give it whether they like it or not. If I am not ask but I am included in the converstaion and I do not feel the same as they do about the subject then I'll tell them that I don't agree and leave it at that.

That sounds like a good policy to me.

I agree with that, not every situation or subject deserves a fight. I tried telling my ex that, because we were both different on political views, and he knew that, but he liked to push my buttons. But I never wanted to fight about it, but he'd keep going and going, and then we'd end up in a full blown fight where I'm crying and he's screaming. I hated those times.

Hypocricy to me is when someone says one thing but really doesn't believe or follow what they are saying. I speak my piece when ever there is a subject going. I don't force my believes or the way I think on someone but I want to make sure if I disagree with them that they know where I stand. I would never want someone thinking I agreed with them because I kept quiet just to keep the piece.
