I used to have a lot of friends. Then one day, they wanted to contradict one of my beliefs and attack me. So, I attacked back. Then I dug them so deep into the ground with what I said that they told other people. Then all my friends started disappearing, and it was just me. Since I won every argument, no one wanted to be my friend anymore, since they thought I was this cocky, evil person who just shattered everyone’s perspective on life. So, I stopped confronting people because I actually liked having friends. Now I just listen to everyone’s opinions and keep my mouth shut. 😐
