I have a friend from another online community that is causing me problems. Well, she's not causing me problems; I'm causing me problems with regards to her. Though this is not where I primarily know her, whenever I log onto my page at a site where "likes" are loudly proclaimed, there she is, my friend, up in the corner of my page, LIKING George Romney.
We did discuss Obamacare at one point; she was adamant that it was already ruining her mother's Medicare. I cannot say more. Where would I even begin? But it's me I'm worried about.
What kind of human am I that won't speak with a friend, who has, as they say, a heart of gold? I'm partly afraid that I'm not articulate enough to convince her how wrong she is, but what kind of human am I that would be so driven to do so? Perhaps it's that she's the only person I know with whom I have this disagreement, so she becomes the target for all my frustration.
When you have strenuous political disagreements with a friend or acquaintance, can you talk to them still, or are you struck dumb with what is likely a wholly inappropriate anger?
