I experience a great moment of gratitude when I hear someone say, "I agree with you."

Whenever I get this feeling, I am conscious of being Japanese. At the same time, I wonder if people from other countries feel the same or don't mind at all if others have different opinions. Although, some might prefer to get different opinions. Those peoole would feel bored when everyone says that they are on your side, right?

When I speak English, I feel freer to state and listen to different opinions, but still it seems that I like the phrase "I agree with you" somehow.

Although I have been exposed to different cultures, I feel it is not easy to get rid of my own cultural background, which I grew up and was raised around. Especially when I was in an elementary school, I can't name any classmates who spoke to the contrary directly. Teachers were qualified protectors for me.

I am not sure why I always had a guardian angel as a kid. Maybe because I was as quiet as can be or was as cute as button! (^^)

Therefore, I'm actually not used to reacting sharply to other's opinions. If I go too far when I display opposition, please let me know.


PS: I have a question: Is it a correct English phrase? "I'm on my own side." If so, how do you use it? I know this, "I'm on your side."
