DP Daily Prompt: Agree to Disagree

pad2015-s1.png (308×60)

Do you have a good friend or a close relative with whom you disagree on a major issue( political, personal , cultural)? What’s the issue and how do you make the relationship work?

I have a good friend, we discuss political, personal and cultural issues, we disagree at times about certain things, we do not cross the limit, which is how I maintain my relationship with her.

I spoke to her about her health and that she should be careful what she eats, she agrees, we are humans and our temptation to eat certain foods keeps us from remembering how dreadful it is for us.

My friend maintains she is very careful about her eating habit at home, when it comes to going out to eat, the smell of food makes her break her resolve, I’ve suggested why not she eat at home but she is an outgoing person she’d rather eat out at the cost of her health than give up eating out.

In those times my mother’s words ring in my ear, “we’d only live  once why suffer heartache by denying yourself?”

These words are enough to keep me quiet!

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this post. It highlights how we need not agree with everything to be friends with others :-).

    All good wishes,
