It’s Just Your Opinion

Arguments

One of the most annoying things ever has got to be a person who can not disagree with other people in a sophisticated manner.

There’s absolutely nothing wrong with disagreeing.

Once you realize that fundamental notion, it makes sense not to lose your shit just because someone has a different view of the world than you.

Or maybe just a different view on one topic. You may have a lot of things that you agree on if you give it a shot.

We all see things differently, and whether you can see the sense in another person’s argument or not; their and your humanity demands that you let them have their say and vice versa.

Remind yourself not of the logic behind your arguments, but how the sentiments within them evoke strong emotions within you. And realize that the person you’re disagreeing with has the same process going on inside of them.

It’s not about right or wrong, it’s about being human, and not being afraid to show it.

I’ll leave you with this quote from Noam Chomsky that changed my perception of things a lot:

“If we don’t believe in freedom of expression for people we despise, we don’t believe in it at all”
