I was at my voice lesson today and in the middle of my lesson, a guy came to the door. Turns out he was one of those guys that tries to recruit people to Jehovah's Witnesses or whatever.
I started thinking, and decided that these people REALLY bother me.
If you're a Jehovah's Witness, fine. If you want to talk about your religion with people who want to listen, then fine. But seriously, why would you go up to people's doors, trying to get them to believe what you believe?? It's so stupid.
If my voice teacher wanted to be a Jehovah's Witness, THEN SHE WOULD BE ONE. A guy coming to her door trying to change her mind will not work.
Seriously, leave people alone!!! Why can't you just enjoy whatever it is you believe in for yourself? Why do you need other people to agree with you? Why do you CARE who else is part of your religion if you really are following it for yourself?
I've recently decided that I don't support eating meat. Do I care if my friends and family eat it? NO! I care if I eat meat. Deciding whether or not I'm going to eat meat is my decision and I don't have control over what anyone else wants to do. Therefore, I'm not all up in people's faces lecturing them when they take out chicken. If they had wanted to be vegetarian, then come on. They'd be vegetarian by now.
Personally, I think this is why there are so many issues with the world. The only reason there's so much political conflict is that everybody just wants everybody on their side. Why does it anger people so much when people they don't even know choose to live a lifestyle they don't agree with? Why do people get so mad about other people's choices that don't even affect them? The same thing goes for gay rights. Like, if you don't agree with homosexuality, like...uh...don't be homosexual?...
Would it REALLY affect your personal well-being if two strangers walking down the street were?
And if you say yes, then YOU'RE the one with issues.
The moral of the story is, have your opinions. But please don't force them on other people. Happiness does not require everyone to agree with you.
