Today, we live in a society where anyone can have access to almost any social media platform where they can put their opinion for the world to see. With that being said, you are bound to come across someone who has a different opinion than you, but does that make them wrong? Ultimately, the answer is no. There are roughly 7.5 billion people on Earth who all live very different lives, meaning they might not share the same opinion as you. People have a desire to always be right; therefore, if someone doesn’t believe the same thing as them they rationalize it as the other person being wrong.

With all of that being said, that doesn’t mean that disagreeing with someone is wrong. Having differing opinions is good, it adds variety to the world that we wouldn’t have if everyone had the same beliefs. However, it is how we react to differing opinions that can change everything. Treating people with respect is how we should react to someone with a differing opinion; they may have personal reasons behind why they believe what they believe in, or they may have been proved or taught otherwise. The best ways to respect something different is to keep to yourself and not say anything, or listen to them and expresses your disagreement in a calm conversation if they have asked for it.

If someone’s opinion is different than yours that doesn’t mean you have to say something about it. People are willing to put their lives online, posting or saying whatever they may choose, but that doesn’t mean your input or opinion is necessary. The best thing would be to keep to yourself unless they have asked for input. However, open discussions about differing opinions can be very beneficial to both parties because it helps the other person or people understand why someone thinks a certain way or can open your mind to a new way of thinking. Respecting one another should be how everyone goes about life rather than arguing about a tiny little disagreement.
