Sometimes two sides just never meet. Like the two sides of a Coin.

Sometimes two sides just never meet. Like the two sides of a Coin.

Have you ever talked to a friend about something not really that important? Then you end with your own opinion. Then he answers with his opinion, which is otherwise contrary to how you see that, something. So then you answered back, emphasizing on your point and how it is that he seems wrong. Then he goes defending his point, emphasizing all the more that you get it
wrong?

I’ve been to a lot of these arguments. Sometimes, it is because I know I’m right. Well sometimes, I just don’t want to be wrong (haha). Sometimes I just want to have a deep meaningful conversations about rather
shallow meaningless things. But something I’ve learned in these arguments: sometimes two side just would never ever meet. But that doesn’t mean that a side is wrong while the other was right. No, the same side holds truths. They are just different truths. A truth that is different than yours, but not really hard to understand. You just have to look beyond to the other side. Like a
coin. They have two sides, but each side is the coin.

Every person is entitled to his/her own opinion, but there are some cases in which it turns into a hot debate. It really depends on the persons intelligence and intellect. If the intellect level is too far apart then it's best to just give your opinion and stop talking or if the other person is receptive then you can teach him something or correct him. If you're in the same level then you could continue on your friendly discourse.

Exactly. The level of intelligence sometimes play a big part on conversations or arguments. I do have a classmate whom I sometimes talk to and our conversations mostly end up on arguments and sometimes debate because he doesn't stop until his 'opponent' agrees on his opinion and I find that very annoying in the sense that I just don't want arguments and what I want is just healthy conversations. However, I do understand that there will be people who are to shallow to make small things bigger.

I strongly agree with you. Every person is entitled to his own opinion. Each one has his own free will.

I once heard a joke that everyone has a right to their own opinion even when the opinion is stupid. It may sound stupid but actually when you argue with people that you cannot agree with it is hard to get to a common point.

Two friends can never agree on everything, sometimes they just have to accommodate the idea of the other person even when they know that deep within them they is a disagreement. I don't think a stupid opinion should be classified as nonsense because in every nonsense they is a sense.

hahaha. I like that. "in every nonsense there is a sense". Just that it is not sensible enough for them to make out a compelling argument or that it is not applicable at the moment. There are many people who also do not find the right words to explain themselves hence their being misunderstood.

Well explained. Sometimes it turns into giving their own arguments and no one is humbly accept the other opinion until it seems to never ends. And whenever I see people like this, it frustrates me because of how people don't try to accept things. I thank my self for never been interested in such debates or arguments. I respect each other's opinion and if I'm confident that the person is wrong then I humbly inform him for the sake that I don't also tolerate wrong information.

I agree with you. People say, everyone of us is unique. But, when we have varied opinions which expose omhow different we are from each other, conflict arises. We have to constantly remind ourselves that no two minds works perfectly and accurately the same.

I don't think that's an argument. That's more of a debate to me and it's perfectly fine to have your own opinion on the matter. If people had just one opinion, then we wouldn't progress as a society. I actually find it appealing when trying to converse with other people with different opinions. It might sound like an argument on their end but I just see it as engaging in conversation.

There are healthy arguments and there is absolutely nothing wrong with getting into such arguments but when such arguments turns into something nasty with cursing and abusive words, it would be best to end such discussions and have my peace of mind.

When an argument is going for too long, I have the habit of just agreeing with the person to just for the sake of ending the argument. I guess I'm just a person without any backbone to defend my opinion. The way I see it, if someone is that thick headed even after you gave your thoughts on it, I think it's better to end it and not waste time on the person anymore.

Yes, I agree with that, because the first and last will never meet because it's infinity and beyond, like for example the negative and positive.

There are many times when I have ended up conceding by simply shutting up instead of wasting my words and efforts trying to make the other person get a point that is too complicated for them. At other times I have stopped arguing thinking that my argument was the best only to find out that I might have been wrong later on.

many times there can't be a right or wrong answer to any subject. there can be two views which can be right according to every person's perspective. there are always two sides to any debate. we generally make a mistake by calling them right and wrong, whatever I feel is right may not be right according to someone else's perspective and circumstances.one have to develop a habit to understand the other person's perspective and views and respect them even if they may be completely opposite to your own views. one must stop seeing life in black and white, there is always a grey area.

Opinions will always differ from one person to another especially when the topic of discussion is a controversial subject. I have been in such kind of arguments before but I learnt long ago that it's no use forcing my opinion on another person who have strong affinity to his own opinion. So, it's best to respect another person's views.

Yea, everyone opinion is different irrespective of what is being discussed, it can be about food or anything but an individual will always prefer to stand by his words that is why the view of others matters, not everyone will take your side in an arguement or discussion.

I don't have the habit of engaging a person to an argument about something that is trivial. There was once an argument between 2 colleagues of mine in the office. The topic was a tv show. Can you imagine that a trivial matter would cause not only an argument but the professional relationship? When someone would rebut on my statement, I would evaluate if the rebuttal is decent and civil so I would reply. But if the rebuttal is kind of rude or harsh then there is no use to argue and I just move on to another topic.

I think it's always okay to not agree on things - provided that there's a mutual level of respect and that no one stoops to name calling or anything snarky or rude. You can completely be like two different sides of a coin and politely agree to disagree. It's just that some people don't understand that everyone does have different opinions. It's when you assume everyone should think the way you do that there can be problems.

I understand what you are trying to point out and I can relate to you. But to be honest, sometimes, I find this kind of conversation helpful. Hearing others opinions that contradict yours is challenging. You tend to become more expressive to explain your side. This leads to a debate or argument but it has benefits like gaining credibility by defending your ideas.

I believe that in a debate, no one wins. Both sides have supporters since everyone has his own opinions. We just have to share our sides, listen, and then respect others. Know where they are coming from so you will understand the reasons behind their thoughts.

I always do that arguments with my bestfriend. That is our bonding. That is our way of welcoming each other after not seeing for a week. We used to do that whenever we got together. And just like what you had said we always end up defending each other's opinion. It is like our opinion neve met each other. But we don't fight against it. We just try to explain and then respect each other opinon in th end.

Literally speaking it will never ever meet but if you talking about our lives then it will also happen. Everyone has own mind to think and own mouth to speak. We are entitled from what think to others. We have different ideas and opinions to a specific thing but it doesnt mean that we are not accepting their explanations.

Two sides will never meet each other, like in real life, for example, the great wall of China, that wall will never meet from finish to end because it has the finish line and the ending line.

The feeling of winning every argument is a weakness. Before you argue that long it is better to try to see the idea of the other person from his own side. You try to wear his shoes. I may know an African is black but a person who has never seen one may argue he is yellow. Behind two arguing people there is some ignorance somewhere.

Very well said! I believe that in an argument no one will win. There is a reason behind someone's belief or ideas. And we will never know unless we put ourselves to his position. We can share our thoughts in the most polite way and listen to the others opinion without any contradiction.

In my opinion even opposing views can result to a mutual agreement. That's if both parties are receptive to each other in finding common ground. But there are cases in which it's really impossible to reconcile opposite views, this becomes a heated neverending debate.

I've deal with a lot of arguments before, since I am really an opinionated person. However, no mater how opposing my argument with them we didn't end up being angry with each other since we try to understand each other and respect our own opinion.

I'm going to very honest with you about some of the crazy arguments that I have had especially at the football viewing center where I normally go to watch football every weekend. There has been some arguments that almost disintegrated into fight on some occasions but I always try to never cross that line. Have you ever seen Cristiano Ronaldo fans and Lionel Messi fans are arguing? It's very horrible.

I think that God created all of us in his own image. However if you read the bible carefully, God has different sides. I think that he created all of us different. We are never meant to agree.We are all supposed to have different views. In my opinion this contributes to the world growing. I certainly am glad that I'm different. I don't want to be like anyone else. I love different opinions. I love it when people see the same thing differently.

Respecting other's opinion is the best way to deal with this kind of situation. I've been in many arguments or conversation wherein I did not really agree with other's opinion. It is hard to continue the conversation if you see that other person doesn't seem to respect yours. But no matter how unlikeable their opinions are, we need to keep calm and just politely end the conversation.

Humans have this instict to win in an argument, though not always, but there is really that point in your life when you have to let your pride swallow you. Thus, you want to win in an argument or debate. Well, no matter how you view it, "two sides of a coin" will never be one. Also, every person's mind works differently, so what you viewed as more appropriate may not be the same with your friend or your family member.

I am a type of person who always insists my point of view and ended up with grudges. Before, me and my husband always had a different views in all aspects. Instead of arguing each time we have different opinion, he let me do now what is right in my own opinion and I let him also do his own choice.

For sure there are some matters you feel so strongly about that you will never relent and neither will the friend who feels just as strongly opposite to what you think. I had an extensive discussion with a friend regarding the death penalty. At the end of discussion neither one has budged from our position. But we're still friends and I truly respected her points of view. She made some excellent points.

Another example is my husband and me. We don't see eye-to-eye on so many things! But I must say he does present some interesting arguments to support his positions.

There is only one topic or subject matter which I always try everything within my power to never get into an argument with someone on it because most times, arguments on such subjects leads into fights and violence.

The topic or subject matter which I'm referring to here is anything on Religion especially when it concerns Islam, I would run like my life depends on it.

There is a saying that the only way to win an argument is to avoid it. You are right that sometimes arguments can lead to violence and may even cause lives of the parties who were engaged in a heated debate. Even with politics and religion, it is a waste of time and energy to engage in such nonsense arguments. I say nonsense because there is no win or lose when it comes to politics and religion.

Its best to agree to disagree in situations where both parties feel their side is right. If you can't convince the other to change sides then accept that they are entitled to hold a different opinion than yours. Keeping your friends is much better than continuing an argument that has no end.

Some people are just set in their ways. I try to keep an open mind all the time when talking about new things but sometimes I cannot hold my biases back. I never mean to be biased, but some people cannot and will not be dissuaded from their opinions.

One of the motivational programmes I listen to is audio books by Wayne Dyer. He always says that we are all different and there is nothing that is written in stone. Anything in this world is possible including an opinion.Always agree to disagree with people. Never impose your opinion on other people. Always have an open mind. Always know that anything is possible even if you can't envision it, other people can.

The most heated of arguments I had with friends. relatives and close colleagues came from small, trivial things. But the beauty of these arguments is that we can always agree to disagree. But it's always nice to mentally and intellectually spar with someone and know that you came out on top (most of the time).

I think these types of arguments can appear like a coin with two sides, but are actually much more easy to integrate and face one another. Heated debates often allow emotions, such as pride and anger, leak into the argument. When pride becomes involved it is especially difficult to give ground on your opinion, so you stay firm even in the face of legitimate criticism. Taking deep breaths and letting go of the emotional intense bits of arguments allows one to see the other side much more clearly.

Been to a lot of arguments too. Each and every one of us has his or her own stand about something or a certain topic, but some people just doesn't want to get their views stepped on. They want to fight for what they believe in and I have nothing against them. I do love debates and just don't want to lose whenever I join one or I am a participant. But if it's a conversation who is too closed minded, I just leave the conversation hanging and let them be.

I have read a book about public speaking and I was impressed by a topic on that book that says, "How to disagree without being disagreeable?". We have to understand that communication is an art and that art must improve to make us a better communicator. Someone said don't increase your voice, improve your arguments.

People are different, we are all mostly the same but nobody on this planet is the same, we are all different. If your friend is doing that you need to get away from him, ha may be a child but if he is not, that just isn't a good friend. My opinion!
