57 ARGUE–WHY?

There are no,

IFs

ANDs

or

BUTs

There just,

IS

You can,

If you choose,

Argue the point,

Bemoan the how and the why

If that is what it'll take to make you feel better

But

It won’t change the fact

that

It IS

what it IS

Why Argue?


If you copy this piece in part or in whole and do not give credit and link back here to Rhapsody Phoenix then you stole it. In other words….

You are a thief.

It’s that simple.

  8. Fabz,

    I see you’ve "waxed poetic" in several recent blog entries. Nice work, as always. It appears that you and I are STILL kindred spirits that the Muses of Poetry force to write poesy from time to time, huh?

    Take care,

    Richard in Texas

    1. true enough, its just torture on the psyche.

  11. Arguments never solve anything. I have known people who argue just for the sake of it or to hear their own voice it seems. These individuals are sad indeed and they don't realize they are just driving people away instead of drawing them closer.

    1. hmmmm, Darling, a bit rough you think? I can be a bit blunt.

      Well, one cannot take people's work/effort for granted. I am not saying am not willing to share, am just asking to honor my work by asking and not just taking.

      Glad you had a good laugh.

    2. You have a point and i strongly agree. :)

    1. hmmmm, there is a point in some discussions when you can tell its not going anywhere rather it circulates like a dog chasing its tail and all it does is take a told on your psyche and create stress in the body.

  14. I liked the message but not the foot note though made in a spirit of fun.One wins an argument only by weakening a friendship.

      sometimes in life, footnotes are necessary to those who take liberties without honoring the work of those they see to hold.

  15. Ha!! May the Lord teach us all how to deal with disagreements!

  16. Arguing sure does drain my energy. I rarely do. I don't see the point.

    1. Some of it comes with time and experience and a willingness to not always be RIGHT.

  19. Don't you have the right to argue if you think you are right? Some people argue because they think they are always right. Some people do it for sport.

    1. It is one thing wanting to be heard and another wanting to right. Right is relative. I guess the thing you have to ask yourself is, would i rather be right or would I rather be heard and understood.

  20. I don't like to argue, but sometimes I have to be careful not to state my case too too forcefully and forget to be respectful.

    1. ah that is a wise way, thank you for sharing that....to remember to be respectful.

      Delete
  21. I admit I am one of those who love to argue, or maybe debate a point, but only if I think it is not a FACT and never to fall out with someone else. Some times I do it for fun :)

    1. hmmmmm, i think we all have a little of that within us. There is not wrong with debating however as Kay so wisely said, we need to "remember to be respectful." Often arguments deteriorates into name calling, demoralization and fists fights--these we need to be cognoscent of.

      Delete
  22. Certainly can't argue with that :)

    1. haha...
      I have to admit that I have adapted this attitude. I choose if engaging is worth my time and investment. I ask myself, 'how much of this is me, how much is the other person, is the topic worth it, can i get my point across without losing complete control of my composure.

  23. Very interestingly straightforward! I like it.

    1. Straightforward is nice...there is no wondering, no doubt, it just is what it is.

    1. Yes it is, sometimes it pays to find other healthy was to communicate our needs and point of view rather than in an argument.

  25. Wise talk. Sometimes, it is pointless to argue. It does not change what 'IS.' Nice one. Hilarious disclaimer, but so true.

    1. hmmmm.....sometimes disclaimer's are required to those who take "privileged" liberties with works not belonging to them.
