Agree to Disagree

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Agree to Disagree.”

When I saw the prompt this morning the first thing that came to my mind, was my sister. When I hear or see the word disagree or disagreeable she will always be the first thing that will come to my mind.

Growing up she was always disagreeable. I know it sounds like I am stretching it a bit, but no, I’m not. She was ALWAYS disagreeable. People cannot agree to disagree if they are always disagreeable. Simple. We did not agree to disagree because she would ALWAYS disagree.

Seriously, if I would decide to agree with her, then she would switch sides JUST TO BE DISAGREEABLE. I am serious.

I thought it would get better when we grew up. Nope. It only got worse. She is more disagreeable now that she is older than she was when we were younger, and I didn’t think that was possible. Obviously, it is possible because I have seen it first hand.

She is now an old, worn out, bitter and disagreeable woman.

I still have hope.

  1. I have five sisters, I know what it’s like. I can be disagreeable too, but I have an older sister who is very intellectual, and she wins the prize! There is no debating, only disagreement, but I love her–after all, she is my sister.

    • Yes, I completely understand! I love my sister too but because I am a very sensitive person I cannot be around her very often or very long. But, she is still alive so I still have hope! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I can relate to this one PJ – I have one of these people in my life too. Or should I say used to be in my life. For my own mental health and well being, this person is not anymore. Sad, but needed. Just keep being you. xo

  3. Aww your post made me sad, hard to live with someone so disagreeable and sad to know it hasn’t changed. I worked in a retirement home before, and I saw the ones who are bitter ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Also worked with the ones who brought so much JOY, like you do PJ ๐Ÿ™‚ keep letting your light shine and don’t give up hope! You never know when God may break through! ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. I know i shouldn’t laugh (i’m sorry i did) while reading this. When i saw this, i instantly thought of my sister too ๐Ÿ˜€ but i think yours takes the prize this time ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. I can’t imagine living with my sister and having disagreements all the time. I hope she realizes that she should be more like her sister (you, of course! ๐Ÿ™‚ ) You are always full of joy! ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Ahhh thank you so much. My life growing up was miserable. Anytime I am around her now I am miserable so we rarely see each other or talk to each other. Sadly, a year ago in October her youngest daughter committed suicide (which I believe was because of her).

  6. It’s difficult with sisters!! My sister and I are trying to build a more agreeable relationship after many disagreements!! A work in progress! Sadly some people as you say become more disagreeable- never see themselves as the problem- always others!

    • Yes, you are right. She always blames it on every one else. I really hope you and your sister are able to build a great relationship. I know as for myself, I really miss not having a good relationship with my sister (and always have).

  7. I understand what you are saying. As children there are often times disagreements, but one would think that would change as we age. However, age does not always have anything to do with it. Everyone is different and being a sibling gives no guarantee that anything will change . Some might wonder how they ever managed to be in the same family!

    • You are right. I often wonder how we can be related as we are the polar opposites (in my opinion). We choose our personality (to a large extent). She chooses her unhappiness. I hope she will choose happiness. Thank you so much for understanding.

  8. hahaha OMG! I understand, this happens to me with my youngest sister as well. I don’t “hate” when someone disgree with me but I do hate when those people are not able at least to stand in the other person shoes for a minute! because I do and I try to see what the other is trying to say or what the point and then I make a conclusion but there are some people that have a mind as tough as a rock and they don’t even listen to you … annoying ! and I enjoy your writing ๐Ÿ˜€

I would love to read your thoughts...
