Is your way the only way - in your opinion?
Have you ever found yourself asking others what they think just to see if they agree with your point of view? Do you tend to surround yourself only with those who have the same line of thinking or do you find it interesting to be around people with which you can debate alternative points of view?
No, there are as many ways as there are people and cultures in the world; but I won't waste my time asking about those ways that I know won't apply to me in my personal level. I let everybody be in my surrounding, without questioning the motives and background of one's decision or opinion as long as they are within the bounds of decency.
To debate about general social issues has relevance to all but to debate or argue about personal point of views as to how one should think or handle one's personal life such as choosing a religion, a career, a lifestyle and other personal matters is not only ridiculous or a tactless behavior that may lead to gossip and judging others due to lack of understanding of the person involved but is also an act of provocation.
Decency here means doing what one believes to be good for her/him and for all concerned.
No its not. I value the opinions, thoughts and ideas of others. If anything I think that people who think its always about them are selfish and needy.
Each has his own way eventually...
though he must incorporates the ways of others in varying degrees.....nevertheless it is still his own way.
Of course. There are three ways to see each situation, at least. Sometimes there are even more. And debates even make the question of who to follow even better. I love debates and they are always entertaining and thrilling.
It is so true that there are multiple ways to see each situation & being open to debating them is an amazing way to experience growth. Good attitude & good answer
There are millions of ways to view each situation. The premise that there is only one correct way is totally atavistic and narrow minded. We all learn from each other.
No, I don't think my way is the only way. It's just (my way). Life is a personal journey and each of us is entitled to have our own opinions, likes, dislikes, deal breakers, or what have you. Having said that I believe the best relationships are between people who agree on the (major things) in life and share the same core values. Not many people want to have a fight everyday.Life is too short for that in my opinion.
A (friendly debate) from time to time can be both fun and enlightning as long as the people involved do not take things over the top or resort to personal attacks because they have a difference of opinion. Sometimes you have to agree to disagree depending on the circumstances.
There are people who assert that their opinions are the ONLY logical and reasonable ones. However, they fail to realize that other people's viewpoints and opinions are JUST as VALID as theirs. read more
