Vocalising your beliefs
November 14, 2008 8:52am CST
Is it ok to always be speaking about your beliefs? This is what I think that what you believe is something personal. there are some people who take it upon themselves to propagate their beliefs and look down upon those who donot happen to share their beliefs. how fair is that?

I think it's okay to share your believes with others IF they ask you while not shoving it down their throat. But if it's done in a manner that implies they think they are better than you then no it's not fair nor okay. What makes us people is that everyone has their own opinion if we all shared the same opinion on every single thing how boring would that be?

Of course it's okay to speak about your beliefs. If no one shared what they thought, we wouldn't learn from each other. Sharing your thoughts and expressing your feelings isn't only good for you because you're saying what you want, but also for other people because they're increasing their knowledge by listening to you and learning about your views, even if they disagree. I agree with you though. It's not fair that some people take it too far, and that's why the line is so thin between having a civilized discussion and a fiery argument that may have disastrous results. It's also not fair that some people try to force their beliefs onto others, because it works very, very rarely and violates the rights of the other person. Everyone is entitled to an opinion, and every opinion should be respected. You don't *have* to share your beliefs if it makes you feel uncomfortable though, this is up to you, and I think that the other person shouldn't take this the wrong way either.
