Different Views...

There will always be someone else with a different view than you.
 I appreciate them and would never say that they are wrong. 
I hope that they would give me that courtesy also...

We all have different views on things.  That's what makes this world such
an interesting place.  I can definitely say Arvid and I see things differently quite often.

When it comes to having a positive outlook in life two people stand out right away.
Arvid and our niece Danielle.

Arvid at times is so always positive that I sometimes suspect he just lives in this fantasy world,
but I know better.  He always sees possibilities rather than the negative.  Danielle is the 
same.  Nothing fazes her.  Just about to graduate from high school and she is already 
a force all on her own.  Just listening to her puts me in awe.

I am not a negative person, but unlike Arvid I am realistic.  I like to talk 
about things whereas he would rather "pretend" all is good.  I like
to confront issues, where he thinks that if you leave it alone then the 
"problem" goes away.  He claims this is because he is positive.  maybe he has a point.

Guess we are all different in how we view things.  I have learnt in life if you
talk things out, it does not necessarily make you a negative person.
Arvid feels that if you ignore it it will fix itself...

Wonder who is right here?

One who is too insistent on his own views, 
finds few to agree with him..
