O – Opinion
Opinions. Just like assholes, everyone’s got one.
Have you ever been in a disagreement with someone that simply cannot deal with the fact that you have a different opinion than they do?
Boy, I have.
When I was younger, I was SO stubborn. It took me a while to grow up and realize that just because my point of view was different, didn’t make the other person “wrong”. Some people never come to this realization.
I was in a relationship with someone that thought that if he argued long enough or yelled loud enough, that he could convince me that HIS opinion was the RIGHT opinion! I got to the point where I just shut down. I would not even debate the subject with him.
It’s OK to disagree with someone! They are entitled to their opinion, just like you are entitled to yours!
My BFF, is a wonderful person and I love her very much. But we do not always see eye to eye. I’ve come to realize that the damage I might do to our friendship is not worth trying to make a point or disagreeing with her.
I will NOT discuss Politics or Religion with co-workers, or people I don’t really know in social settings. The people I don’t really know; it won’t matter anyway. With co-workers; I spend 8 hours a day with these people. I am not going to jeopardize my relationships and ruin that!
Can you agree to disagree? Or do you HAVE to be right?
