A friend, someone who cares for and respects us will of course wish to state their opinion if they feel it is different to yours. This is how conversations can be made, if respect is given. However, when a person explains that they truly feel they are at peace with how their path and feelings on a subject are at the time, content in the best efforts being made at all times, then a respectful person, friend, would accept this and move on. Maybe, with keen interest want to find out more, in order to further their own feelings on the subject they have not seen in the same way. It is important to always examine ourselves, if we feel emotionally charged to put someone straight or sort out their thinking. It is often the case that it is our thinking that needs examining if such a response occurs. It is unfriendly. A decent and respectful person, friend, will always take the time to respect your wishes and unless they perceive a direct danger or threat, to insist is to disrespect.
If we find ourselves with friends or people in our lives who continually make digs at our character, tell us that we are mistaken, offer advice that would neglect your passions, or any other action that feels bad to us, then we really would be best advised to examine their role in our lives and to make changes according to our own boundaries. Take the matter into your own hands, establish who you want around you.
We are all friends until proven otherwise.
