I would walk over hot coals before I would cause hurt to a friend. I have friends in the real world and the cyber world with whom I disagree on some issues but the adult way is to agree to differ, and so we do.

There are ways of saying things politely to people which make clear your opinion without being aggressive or hurtful and that is what I try to do.

You have to accept that some people don't want to hear or accept the truth and that's up to them.

I don't think I have any enemies so I'm not sure what I'd say to them.

I do wonder about people's motivation sometimes and I know people lie but I suppose that's human nature for some.

Hiya Hayley.

I've disagreed with my mates during a debate on here and it's been cool. No worries. That's the whole point of a debate .......hearing differing points of view I never let that bother me.

In the real world I am very hotheaded but try and hold back saying what I think til I'm calmer.......usually once the moment has passed I shrug my shoulders and move on......cept if there is a *y* in the day of the week lol xx
