When you meet like-minded individuals it is one of life's pleasures. Having your opinions confirmed and feeling able to articulate freely, comfortable that you won't be disagreed with or undercut, is affirming. But, after a while, that lack of being challenged becomes... well... unstimulating. It's important to butt heads on certain things - to spark debate and kindle conversation. It's only when we have to defend ourselves that we learn whether our views are worth defending. Don't be afraid to face a challenge today. You'll develop your ideas in a healthy way.
