Rejection, Retaliation and Rebuke

Actually, to my surprise, this tumult has indeed affected me and not positively. I found "close" friends with whom we had different positions on issues, stop talking to me. It was shocking at first but when I realized how passionately "the other" felt about the issue, I learned that they were unable to tolerate, hear or accept a justification for my opinion.

I found myself being silent (unnatural for me) when conversation turned to critical issues to avoid outbursts and name calling.
