Play it safe?
Last thing I ever want to do is play it safe but I am weak in the face of conflict. I write fiction so the moment that someone says, “What is your opinion?” I feel threatened. I am a million people with a zillion opinions in any given situation. I also know that if I have a strong opinion which I voice it might polarize me from someone.
In this day and age we are tribal. You are one camp, and inturn must chose my team.
