Friendship and Hot Buttons

I have an old and dear friend. He has hot buttons for the War in Ukraine and Gaza. I walk on eggshells. If I push one of the hot buttons, he will go away and sulk for a year. Sometimes he tries to push one of the buttons, but I won’t play.

Please give your finger pointing friend a message from me

When you point your finger at someone, there are three fingers pointing back at you.

I used to know a guy who had so many hot buttons that it became almost impossible for us to have a conversation about anything at all. Walking on eggshells became too tiring so I just stopped talking altogether.

Do we have the same friends?

Having a conversation about politics as adults is so difficult when either party doesn't want to and It turns into a debate, then you end up with a sour taste in your mouth and start to question things.
I don't think everyone can agree on everything, however they aren't your friend because you like agree/disagree with their political views, sometimes people need a reminder of why their friends are their friends.

Yeah, I never talk about politics with friends. That stuff is just too boring for me. Not even standing on one leg can make any of that exciting

A whole year to not be bothered with anger and irritation? Why are you even hesitating on pushing ol’ sulky’s button? Bliss!
