On almost any topic people seem to end up taking sides. This could include anything. For example, a new restaurant may open. The opinions of whether the food is good, fair or poor will lead to discussions and then people taking sides. It’s not really anything significant. Now sports is another matter. When people begin taking sides the arguments become heated. When a referee makes a call and people do not agree it can become quite unpleasant. Individuals all love their teams and the discussions can become frustrating. Taking sides in a family becomes extremely difficult. The worst part about infighting is it often turns ugly. As people are taking sides they are becoming distant. In many families if a situation is not resoled, it can end up with hurt feelings and a divided family. Often people become so mad that they stop talking. If they let things go too long a parent, sibling, cousin, or other relative may pass without ever resolving the issue. Then they end up with guilt for the rest of their lives. People fail to see the true significance of life. We are not promised everyday and when it is our time there is not always time to say goodbye. The medium Matt Fraser speaks about this when spirits contact him. They frequently tell their loved ones they are sorry. The people here on earth inevitably are shocked and cry. It is overwhelming. We all have regrets in life. We all make mistakes, however, taking sides and holding a grudge can be quite uncomfortable if not resolved and a person passes. It doesn’t matter if people disagree or even take sides, what really counts is becoming angry, arguing and fighting and not resolving anything. Don’t you agree?
