Those that disagree with you

One thing that I have come to learn over the years is that there will always be someone who will disagree with you about something. It’s a case of not being able to please everyone all of the time.

There are many ways to look at things in life, so it may be that there are many correct versions of something depending upon the way you look at it. When we try too hard to be right all the time, it can end up revealing more about ourselves. People who wish to force their view points upon others are often trying their best to convince themselves. Their irrational reasoning is that if they can convince others to think the same way they do, it reinforces that their beliefs must be correct. The mind is incredibly powerful and we can pretty much convince ourselves of anything if the intention is there.

At times, it’s best to agree to disagree. Save your energy for like minded people and learn to pick your battles. Follow your heart and be true to yourself and don’t take it personally when someone has a differing opinion to you. It’s got more to do with them than you.
