: The help below is very sound, and i try to adopt
: similare attitudes. Yesterday for example, i and my friends were sitting around
: during lunch break, and those who knew about my beliefs bagun to harass me. Instead of saying something
: about my beliefs being better than theirs, which may or may not be true, i bared it with little more than a smile and
: slight discomfort. This action, or lack of action, didn't cause any conflict with them and things settled down thus leaveing me to my mindfulness. While i was tempted to say something, i didn't. Instead saw how they were looking to prove beliefs to be better, which is fine for them to believe but only causes them to be closed minded to other wounderful possiablitys. However, with reasonable friends, i will discuse buddhist ideas with them and they their beliefs to me. When neither trys to prove the other wrong both can learn and accept alot more then if force.
: Anyway, i have spoken very much. Time to go, Bye.
: I hope that was coherent :^)
