Why I Hate Debates?

Let’s talk.  You love to talk and I love to listen. And when I talk you listen. How sweet would that world be? For all I would want, I often don’t get that scene set up. On the contrary, I do stumble upon souls who are so eager to prove their god-damn point. I pity them and I hope they find something better to attach their pride with rather than their ego-loaded (I-don’t-care-what-you-say-I-AM-BLOODY-RIGHT!) point less statements.

All this is fine. But I feel the pinch when that someone gets into your head and forces you to fight back and agree with his truck load of bs. Here’s what I do to stay away from such situation. I nod my head and give an impression that I completely agree with whatever they have to say. I just can’t get into any debate. I can’t get into deciding what is right and what is wrong. And does that really make sense? What may be right for someone might very well be not-so-right for someone else? It’s all in the context and perspectives, isn’t it? And anyway, you can’t paint everything in black and white. There’s got to be a lot of grey area. And that’s why I just don’t see a point in debating? Just not worth the time.

That said, there’s a fine line between a debate and a discussion. Once we align on a common objective, I am all yours. We can have an endless conversation and more often than not get something out of it.

Who am I?

The question that stumps me the most is 'who really are you?'. And how
many times have we tried hard to be ??the right the victor,
the flag bearer, the champ, the blah and the blah. I thought it's
time to just pen down what i really do...and what i really am.

I try.
I fail.
I try.
I win.
I fear.
I fight.
I make.
I break.
I surrender.
I lead.
I pray.
I show.
I hide.
I like.
I dislike.
I help.
I share.
I suffer.
I enjoy.
I sympathize.
I empathize.
I care.
I trouble.
I envy.
I love.
I am flawed. And I am just another imperfect guy.
