Actual assassination attempt aside, a lot of people take tremendous offense at my questions.
I don't get that.
A lot of people won't answer my questions. Instead, they roll their eyes, engage in evasions and change the subject. My favorite evasion is "You can't understand."
That may be the truth. In some situations, it absolutely is a truth. If you are a parent, can you explain to someone else what being a parent is like? Nope. They must experience it.

Does an adult have the right to change himself?
My friends on the <- and the -> will probably answer some of these questions differently. However, they should all say the answer to the last two questions is yes.
NOT SO SIMPLE QUESTIONS
These are still yes & no anwer questions. However, few people will be satisfied with a yes or no.

If the person wants to be happy, then do they have the right to try to change?
How can you tell someone they can't change, if they are not harming anyone?
