Why We Should Like People Who Don’t Agree With Us?
Listen to those who tell you thing differently!
No matter how much knowledge we got still not every single person can agree with us. So when we start discussing a topic then sometimes people disagree with us or they tell us about their different opinion. Often in these situations when we talk with someone who doesn’t agree with us then we become uncomfortable or we fight for our point. But instead of disliking or hating the person who does not agree with us, we should be thankful for him/her. Because when someone agrees on what we already know then we don’t learn anything new and we don’t get new information or knowledge. So those who have a different opinion than our opinion then we can learn something that we don’t know already. Those people help us to see things differently.
If we will have people around us who will always agree with our opinions then we will not learn anything new. We learn when someone challenges us to re-think and to question our knowledge and understanding of things. Then we re-invent and re-explore our knowledge. Everyone who has a different opinion than our opinion helps us to know what we don’t know.
Remember the goal is not to find who is right, the goal is to find what is right.
And to find what is right we need to hear other people, people who agree with us and more importantly people who don’t agree with us. So then we can go into the depths of our knowledge to find what is right. We are all humans and we can have different viewpoints but it doesn’t mean we should fight against each other. It would be much better if we work together to find the right thing. If we work with those who have different views than our views then we can learn a lot from each other and we can go to the right conclusion.
Because true victory is not about more knowledge, the true victory is about right and authentic knowledge no matter how less or more it is.
