I’m coming on here out of the blue so forgive me if I’m out of context, but I believe that opinions have more purpose than to convert people to one’s own point of view.
They are how we “join”, for lack of a better word. Out experiences shape our beliefs and expressing our beliefs, as well as sharing our experiences, is how we find out who we overlap with and where.
That is an opinion expressed in regards to your question and nothing that may have come before it. ;-)
Personally I don’t usually TRY to change minds, I just try to be authentic and those who also want that will gravitate towards it. It’s a big deal in recovery: attraction rather than promotion.
