Something I have noticed about difficult child is that she is very opinionated and that she is not willing to bend at all when presented with different opinions. It really angers me because she has opinions that are hurtful to members of the family and has no concern for the insult she heaps on them. For example difficult child is absolutely against the gay lifestyle. easy child on the otherhand has not only shown interest in it for a while she said when she grew up she wanted to work with the LGBT community and help them. Whether or not this is because she is leaning that way personally I don't know and I don't care. The only reason I would care is because of the hatred some people have for the lifestyle and the pain that could possibly cause her. difficult child is also completely against abortion, believes that entry level jobs should start at 15$ an hour so that young workers can live off their pay, and yada yada yada. Whether I am for those things or not doesn't matter what matters to me is that she is completely unwilling to bend even the slightest amount. Its to the point that if I mention something and she disagrees with my standpoint I just shut the conversation down. It isn't worth my effort to try to get her to understand anyone else's view on the subject. This is really hard for me because I am the sort of person who can see multiple viewpoints and understand them. I have never been a black and white person about anything that I remember. Is it common among difficult child's that they are unable to understand anything except for their point of view? It seems like it is. What do you call it? It feels like narcicism to me but maybe I am way off base.
