I'm a bit... opinionated, you could say, on a variety of issues. I'm sure everyone has certain ideals about which they are passionate.
What I struggle with at times is befriending people with different priorities. I do believe that everyone deserves a chance, and I can smile & nod with the best of them when required.. but for a profound and engaging friendship, it seems to be that there either has to be agreement, or a tolerance of different opinions which is equally rare.
Those of you who have close & dear friends who disagree with you on many things, how do you do it? Or do you just have lots of acquaintance friends, & fewer close friends? Help me out here.
