If you believe in something enough to go against the grain, does it really matter what others think of you. Who cares what others say. If you truly believe in something that others don't, who cares. Its like religion. there are many religions out there. I don't believe in forcing beliefs on other people. I don't like people that come knocking on my door to tell me I can be saved. I tell them thanks but no thanks and exit the conversation. I don't care if that is what they believe in. They have the right to believe in whatever they want to. The same as i have the right to believe in what i believe in. If I were to join them in a conversation in religion I expect to have a conversation about religion. if that turns to debate and things get ugly, then I knowingly entered into it with my eyes open. I can't expect them to change their mind and believe in what I believe and vice versa.
There are certain people in all kind of circles that I don't have conversations about certain topics with. When 2 people are passionate about a subject and have opposing views, you can only accept their view and move on.
I know rambling.. It makes sense in my head. We have all been jumped on at one stage here. You pick yourself up, learn from it, and move on.
