Why? Because you just need to give the other side, why because I can, why because I'm spoilt and I think I can have my own opinion, why because it's criminal not to, why because I want to, why because I feel the other person needs the benefit of my experience, nay they deserve it!

having spent all my life doing this I've finally realised that sometimes it's just not worth it. But because old habits persist where reason should prevail I'm yet to practice silence.

why because i dont take a stance unless im sure, so i will defend it and i feel i must voice it otherwise it wouldnt be fair.

i try not to be stubborn and blindminded but that can get difficult, especially when one has been following a certain view for a long time.


i love having discussions with people.

Is it true? Is it kind? Is it necessary?

It depends on how strong my views are, if I can be bothered to speak, who I would be talking to.

^ I second that.

I'm more of a listener.
