Sorry I’ve been a bit inactive its because I’ve had many things to do and I needed to brainstorm a bit for a new post… but here it is: Opinionated or Argumentative?
So recently I’ve been getting comments from a few of my friends that I’m very argumentative (bad) to which I totally disagree with. Then, when I went to ask some other friends if I was argumentative (I told them to say honestly) they said no. Instead they said I was very opinionated and that it was good I was like that.
Once I said to a friend “I might go and talk to Kaylee because she’s been saying very racists comments lately.” in response I got:
“you’re being a bit argumentative *Name* just leave her alone.”
I got really upset at that… I don’t remember what I replied back.
Since the moment my friends told me I was argumentative the word has been whizzing around my head, making me feel upset and has also made me have bit of a meltdown. So this left me thinking about how I acted. Therefore, I went on Google and searched up the definitions of the words Argumentative and Opinionated and this is what I got:
1. Argumentative: given to arguing. “an argumentative child”
2. Opinionated: Someone who isn’t afraid to give their personal opinion. “An Opinionated man”
Now, I do not like to start an argument and I do not like to be in an argument because its not nice and it’s not fun for either me or the person who I’m arguing with and Its not nice seeing a close friend arguing with someone else. I will not start an argument.
However, An argument will start if I share my opinion and someone objects to it or says its ridiculous. I do like to tell/share my opinion and I do not like it if someone stops me from sharing it. If someone stops me from sharing my opinion I will force my way through until my opinion has reached there little/big ears and they have understood my side of the story. I will listen to others opinions because we all have different opinions and I like to debate (not meanly) about it.
I think my friends misinterpreted that I was opinionated and said I was argumentative just because I like to make my opinion very clear and if they don’t listen I will force my way until they listen.
Sorry but I had to let this out…
