Question for all those reading...

I like to think I have a rather easygoing disposition. Maybe too much so - I'm profoundly uncomfortable with disagreement. I don't argue. I don't fight. I don't like debate. Though, I feel like normally I can see both sides of an issue pretty well. It's not as if I have an opinion and am too scared or choose not to share it, I'm simply ambivalent most of the time. Honestly? I don't care. Either that or I'm crippled by the decision making process. (But only in things like what restaurant to go to or what I'm going to write. Nothing truly important.)

When I do have an opinion, and I think the person I'm talking to can handle it, I share it. If not, I just keep quiet.

However, there are people in my life who seem to have a pathological need to share an opinion. Who adore debate. Who think that a down and dirty, scrappy, no-holds-barred, fight to the finish sounds like a great way to spend an afternoon.

So how do I meet those needs since I'm the complete opposite of that personality? How do I meet them in the middle? Because honestly? It's becoming a bit of an issue for me.

And I think we can all agree I certainly don't need any more issues. :P
