Arguing with idiots is like playing
chess with a pigeon. No matter
how good you are, the bird is going
to shit on the board, and strut
around like it won anyway.
~David Avocado Wolfe
I used to be part of the world that thought
that making my opinion heard was important.
Little did I realize that no matter how well
I explained my position,
the one I was talking to didn’t hear me at all.
He wasn’t even trying to hear me –
he was just waiting for me to finish talking
so he could share HIS opinion.
And often he misunderstood what I was trying to say
and where my heart was coming from,
because he wasn’t really listening
and he wasn’t able to understand my point of view,
because he was coming from a very different point of view.
Like playing chess with a pigeon, I was talking to thin air.
The point not being that other people
are all pigeons,
but that they just have
different opinions and are at different places
in their walk through life than I am.
So why bother to argue with anyone.
They don’t hear you,
they just want to argue to make themselves feel better.
To give themselves the feeling that they are in control.
That they have power over you
because they can argue better or louder.
Find someone who is on your same vibration
or energy level and then you won’t feel like
someone is shitting all over you when you talk with them.
They should be able to discuss ideas calmly
and respond with caring and understanding.
Otherwise you might as well be
talking to the pigeons,
because you are just
wasting your time
