I just felt the need to put my foot down on a conversation being had between myself and someone who decided to comment on my previous post. If you read the exchange you’ll know what I’m talking about.
However I don’t want anyone to feel like they can’t speak their minds here. I was going to put the following passage into my last comment but I decided to post it instead so everyone could see it:
Regular readers of my blog know me and they know that I am always open to their points of view and their thoughts and suggestions even when they think or feel something different than I do. That’s because I know them and trust them, because we have always shown each other respect even when we disagree about something. I’ve always said that the blog is here, in part, for me to hear different points of view from people who can offer me another way to look at things or reasons for why I may be experiencing something or feeling something. However, they have a basis for their comments and the fact that we care about each other sincerely is always evident in the conversation.
I decided to post this statement so those of you here would know that the earlier exchange is not the norm. If you have anything you want to say, feel free to do so because I know the mutual respect will be there even if we disagree. I’ve had some great conversation with people who challenge my perceptions or point out a flaw in my reasoning. And those of you who have done so know who you are and that I always appreciate it.
So let the ideas and comments flow. The spice must flow. Oh wow, I totally quoted Dune 😉
