By being sassy, conservative, young women, sometimes we get ourselves in situations where we have differing opinions from those around us. This can be tricky. While we should always stand up for what we believe in, it’s hard to do this without offending others or feeling like we are in the wrong. By remembering these few points and tricks, it will be easy to stick to your ideals and beliefs no matter what situation you find yourself in.
1) Stay Calm. Don’t let it get to your head. By losing your cool, you may say something you will regret. So just take a deep breath and count to five before speaking your mind.
2) Know What You’re Talking About. Be up to date on the latest news and updates on popular issues. This allows you to talk intelligently on what you believe as well have concrete evidence to back up what you’re saying. This makes your argument more solid, making others less able to argue against you.
3) Be Firm in What You Believe. Don’t let others sway your beliefs by their arguments. Stand true to your beliefs and know that your ideas and values are completely valid.
4) And finally, remember that one of the greatest things about living in this great nation is that everyone has the right to their own opinion and can debate about issues and values. So while we might not always agree with others, respect their right to speak their mind, because that’s what makes The United States of America so great.
