If a person wants to go to bars, get drunk, and commit every immoral deed for their weekend then it doesn’t matter if you throw them into church and give them a good dose of Christianity, they are still going to do it. So save your breath and stop talking.
Not to say that there’s nothing you can do to help, but once a person gets something stuck in their head you are probably not going to be able to talk them out of it.
A confused friend of mine has been “searching for the light” for some time now. I have sat through conversations of the Muslim faith, Evolution, Christianity, and after listening and sharing Christianity when he brought it up (don’t want to shove it down anyone) for about three years, he recently informed me he is sold on Buddhism. I don't think anything I said made a difference.
It’s a hard realization that often times all you can do is sit back and watch them go down the fast track to nowhere. Positive side is that at least there’s a way back and you’ll be there if they decide to come back. But seriously, once you've said what you've said, you should probably shut up.
And now on a more serious note, it cracks me up is when girls say to their boyfriends, “Were you looking at her?”
Women were created beautifully. Women find women attractive (studies show, not in a sexual way, though there are exceptions.) Men find women attractive (no studies needed). Men look women up and down. But…women look women up and down too. We simply have better peripheral vision so we don’t need to move our heads, hence we get away with it.
So the next time a girl accuses a man of looking at another woman, just know that she was probably “looking” at the other woman too.
It explains why we can say, “Cute shoes!”
