Sorry if my last post made me sound really 'grumpy'. However, that's ok, as I do think that, as we age, we realise that we don’t have to ‘put on a show of tolerance’ if we disagree with something or someone. I have always admired older people who were open and honest and “called a spade a spade”, (without being mean, of course!) ...and I am now coming to the conclusion that as I am getting older, I am entitled to stick to my beliefs, and do not have to put up with others’ bull-shit (to put it impolitely!). I have a right to hold on to opinions that may not match those of other people....I don’t have to be openly rude to those whose ideas clash with mine, but nor should I have to put up with spending time with those people or having to listen (passively) to their opposing views!
Well, that did sound grumpy, didn't it? But so be it.
