Emotional advice Evening all. How do I inform people in a group that I go to to not keep talking about politics,religion,money and suicide without offending them please? It's quite frequent and it gets me down. I go to the group to get away from that. Also,peoples money worries are their own business. I get sick of listening to it. We all sit round a table. I don't want to have to move and sit on my own.

If you choose to mix with a different group of people who share your values and standards, and your interests, then your actions will show the group mentioned in your post that you don't agree with them. It's all OK not to want to offend them, but you need to make a decision that's best for you if you don't need to hear the subjects that they discuss.

You can always take charge of the conversation and change the subject matter.

And - You are under no obligation to sit thru conversations that offend you. Excusing yourself is not rude. Do it with a smile on your face.

After that, next time Sit with just one person who has the same interests.

Thank you. I'm not under any obligation. I will chat to my mate instead of listening to them,that or change the subject.
