Having a conversation on Twitter with someone, where you can only describe something in less than 140 characters, really made me think how to explain my “controlling” views on life in a small sentence.
The problem is, probably like all others control freaks, I don’t think I am one at all. Yes, I like things to be a certain way, but does it make a control freak? I like to feel free to express my opinions, whether others agree with them or not. Everyone is entitled to their own views and tastes and we are nobody to change that. Just because I don’t like peanuts, doesn’t mean I’m a freak and you can’t be friends with me because we don’t share the same taste in foods. And I’m not even going to try to adjust that just so you may find me a pleasant person to be around. I see this issue coming up very often in today’s culture. However, until I think that murder is O.K., you shouldn’t worry about me.
Let’s don’t let ourselves to fall into the waves of life and carry us and change us into what others want us to be. After all, what will be left of us? If you want to call us “control freaks” and “opinionated” because of our unique views and tendency to defend that (when you should admire the strength of our personalities), my dear, you are missing out on some fun friends. Who wants to be another egg in an egg carton? Not me, that I guarantee. We are the ones who make this world fun and colorful. Each one of us, because each one of us is different.
Stay true to yourself.
What about you, do you adjust your opinions depending on your environment?
P.S. Forgive the articles I’ve missed, English is not my native language.
