Everyone is not always going to agree with you

Not everyone is going to like your opinion! You may share your $.25 that you thoroughly thought out and calculated in a response and then not one person appreciated or agree with it.  

It can happen! It’s happened to me so many times. I get all emotional in my feelings. Like how f’n dare they! What the f is wrong with you. Then a few more curse words. Lol

What I eventually came to realize is that I’m not right all the time. Everyone is not always going to agree with me. It doesn’t mean I’m wrong in my opinions either. 

We all think and process differently. 

Sometimes that’s the issue. We all come from different places and experiences in our journey in life so we are going to look at situations differently from each other. There’s nothing wrong with that either.

Just because someone has a different opinion or view than you, should you cut them off? I notice many are doing just that. So quick to delete or block. But is it really necessary all the time? Like how does a disagreement constitute ending a friendship? My husband and I disagree all the time, but I’m not going to divorce him because of it. My friends and I have differences of opinions on tons of topics and beliefs. I wouldn’t do many of the things they do, but when you love and care about people, differences of opinions can potentially open up great conversations maybe even expanding ones perspectives. Talking and listening to understand even if you still don’t agree needs to happen more.  

Next time you find yourself getting all defensive, take a moment and take 5 deep breaths. Rethink your reaction & response! You may still say the same thing but at least you took a moment to respond than create unnecessary drama.
