Everyone is entitled to their own opinions. A recent personal experience made me realize something very essential to life: just because you do not agree with someone else’s opinion does not mean that you should degrade them as a person. It is a very simple, yet hard concept to grasp and even harder to actually put into action. We all have different opinions, and that is perfectly fine. We should all stop disputing and agree to disagree. I never really understood the whole meaning of agreeing to disagree until now. When you disagree about an issue with someone no matter how serious, you feel tempted to look at them differently, but it should not be that way. You should still respect them and their opinion no matter what because at the end of the day, they are a person just like you are. Friendships are constantly being ruined by people disputing and disagreeing over issues going on around them. People tend to, more often than not, formulate a negative or positive feeling toward a person just because they either agree or disagree with that person’s personal opinions. In order to make the world a better place, let’s try to be more respectable of other’s opinions. We all have different minds with different experiences, backgrounds, and thoughts. Respect and be respected.
