Why Do I Always Argue?

I'm pretty sure some of my friends are going to start blocking me from their blogs, and I'm pretty sure my husband might just stop talking to me all together. Why is it so hardwired into me to have to argue every little point and to always have to be right? I remember when I was a kid that it always drove my mom crazy how I would pick stupid little arguments with my sisters all the time, and I've carried that annoying trait right on into adulthood.

I guess the point is, if you post something political/thought provoking/philosophical on your blog, I'm probably going to argue your point. Not because I think you're wrong, and not because I'm trying to be mean. I just like to argue. Sorry.

I tend to be the same way a lot of times, especially when it comes to education. The thing that annoys me is that I wasn't that way as a child, but rather, I developed it over the years. I really didn't like what I had become. After being around people with the same trait (I'm not talking about you), it made me realize that it wasn't all that pleasant being in their company when all they would do is argue (it felt very negative to me). So, it's a trait I have been working on lately and I feel I've gotten better. Now I tend to accept others opinions without having to always argue with them about it. Sorry for the novel. Just wanted to let you know that you aren't alone.
