Passing the buck: Do we all pass the buck at one time or another?

This is actually in reference to conversations either one on one or over the net like through sites like Ted to do with how we react to each other, when we cross swords or butt heads together is it our doing or is it the person we are in conversation with as some disagreements can get out of hand? I think it’s ours!!

      Having a healthy mature debate that is constructive is a good thing especially in disagreement, my whole blog is full of opposing views, but when it becomes destructive that is when we start looking at each other blaming each for the discussion becoming so destructive, this is buck passing & the reason I think we do this is so we don’t have to look at our own short falls during the discussion which usually relates to the ego &/or self-esteem or lack of.

      Love

          I would have to agree with you or am I more right than you...but of course I am what else!!!

          Yes we do think we are right even when proven wrong within a discussion but think about this, if we didn’t have an ego we wouldn't get into a hostile argument it just wouldn't happen however we do & we do allow the ego to take control over our rationality at times but of course if we weren’t so right in the first place the ego wouldn’t come into play, interesting stuff.

          I actually make my presents more known if it's something important to me & someone is being unruly subjective in some way, I take certain discussion probably too serious plus my ego no doubt plays a part as well in my own indiscretions.

          In saying this I have also been known to be a little absence myself but usually not before I voiced my objections.

          Love
          Mathew
