I'm not normally binary with people but there's this line that I've drawn of anti-LGBT thoughts and if people cross that then I do get binary about it. Is it wrong to do that? I don't think I am wrong to do that by any means. I want to just be who I am and live a happy life so why invite discontent into my life where people can judge me and leave me feeling miserable when I could just ignore that poison and get on with my life?
The reason to see things in grey is when you wish to empathise with someone and understand both sides. I'm not going to stretch to empathise with someone who has opinions on who I am and my life when it doesn't affect them in any way. There is nothing to empathise with there. It is them who need to empathise with me. I take it personally, I do, and fortunately I live in a world where I can pick and choose whether I want to associate myself with people like that.
Of course I am still friends with people with problematic views due to circumstance that makes it difficult to just walk away. And when it comes to work I will shut off when a colleague says something stupid that reveals their views on the topic. I can't ignore them because I have to remain professional with them, but other than that I want no association.
I have spent enough time humouring people like this and it's got to the point where enough is enough, I'm not going to make myself ill just because they are people too with feelings that I need to consider. It doesn't matter if I would agree with certain points of his because, I'm pretty sure I can find a common ground with anyone and agree with something but that hardly makes a difference. Their polarising opinions does not make them a victim here.
Why is the Youtube comments section often so god awful?
Would you be possessive over your bottle of ketchup?
There's nothing wrong with boundaries last time I've checked. Its much better to actually believe in something that is right for yourself, especially as an xNFP. It's strictly impossible to be magnanimous about everything
