Believe it. It is real. But only for a season.
LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons; things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person, and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life.
As you get older in life, you begin to realise that life is a journey and you are getting closer to the end. Therefore your perspective changes on what is important. One of these matters is principals. Have you noticed that generally people that fight for a cause are younger people, and generally men? Or protesters, again these are usually testosterone filled people.
I used to be like that, I would find that someone was doing something I did not approve of and I would then give them the silent treatment. I would avoid them, not call them, on principal I felt that I was completely right. One or two of them have died; some of them are no longer in my life either.

While I am not proud of myself, my sticking to my principles or “having my say” have frankly not served me very well.
With the knowledge that I now have, I would handle such situations radically differently. It no longer matters whether I am wrong or right in most issues. I accept that people have different opinions to mine. They are after all their opinions and not mine. And just because it does not fit in with my view of the world, it really doesn’t matter. Just enjoy the difference however hard you may find that.
Another thing with these fall outs is that over the years that I have tended to carry the baggage of them with me, they are a burden. My thoughts of myself from that time are that I have changed and I was an exponent of Walliness (Technical term for an idiot). In many ways I was an all-round Wally.
