Of course I do disagree sometimes, but it is one of those words I really dislike because when someone says “I disagree” it is normally in quite a forceful and confrontational way. When I’m writing I might use the phrase if I had a powerful, dogmatic person trying to overpower an argument or discussion, but it isn’t something I like to come across in real life.
It’s funny how one word can build deep emotional response in someone; disagree has me instantly wanting to avoid even writing about it. That is something I can use in my writing. I wonder what other words evoke such powerful emotional responses in people.
I need to go and have a real chill out having been thinking on this for a while – I really do hate confrontation.
