Thriving with Trin: Why we should respect other people's opinions!

In this world, there are hundreds of controversial topics and opinions, and many people can’t seam to respect one.

For example: During elections, many people have different feelings about two certain people running for the Presidency: Trump and Biden.

For example: During elections, many people have different feelings about two certain candidates running for the Presidency: Trump and Biden. There is nothing wrong with stating which candidate your voting for. The real issue is choosing not to respect or argue with the other person’s political views/opinion.

This is why I rarely state my opinion.  As many people will try to create a whole debate on who to vote for and why. What I think the world should at least try to attempt when it comes to someone’s opinion is to simply accept the fact that they just see things differently. To also try and not start a debate on why they are right or help/nicely educate the person. There is no need for someone to get heated just because they disagree, which is how common arguments start.

On physreg.org, they explain more on why people automatically hop into an argument, “…most people seek to ‘win’ an argument when they encounter someone who has an opinion that differs from theirs.”

They also explain, “Instead of trying to aggressively dominate the other person with your opinion, and arbitrarily dismiss their opinion in the process, try to understand their opinion and perspective on the matter. You don’t grow and evolve by arguing with others, you grow and evolve by gaining new insights, opinions, and perspectives. Everyone has their own unique set of life experiences that prompt them to think and perceive things in a certain way.”

Trying to prove who is correct wouldn’t benefit no one. Except we should all respect each other’s opinions or find a middle ground. In order to receive respect, give respect!
