    Some of my friends criticize me for something about my character: I am always very open towards everyone about what I think and I believe in the motto "Everyone is everyones' business".

    I like to interact with people similar to me and different alike, and this often leads to moments in which we have conflicting views and even opposite moral/ethical standards.

    Most people say "live and let leave" and just go out of the way of those people, but since I'm a person who interacts I prefer openly discussing things with people.

    Do you think I may come across as a meddler?

    How can I engage others in critical discussions to exchange ideas, without coming across as a meddler?

    I think people like you are toss pots.

    Mind your own business and if someone doesn't want to talk - just leave it there.

    You need to know the boundaries. Do u always cross the line?

    Sometime you need to know when to stop. It's a form of respect for others, i think.

    maybe you could use your talking to people skills as a way of choosing your career path.
