Feb 4: Others Perspective

Do you think it’s possible to ever truly see the world from another person’s perspective, or are we held so tightly to our own way of viewing the world?

I don’t think that everybody can see an argument from both sides of the fence. I feel as though that’s an ability only held by certain people. I feel like I’m one of those people. Yes, I have the ability to see another persons perspective, but it might take a bit of explaining for me to do so.

I will openly admit that when I have an opinion of something, then I find that I get cemented in that opinion, and refuse to listen to any others that might contradict, or go against whatever ideal I might be in support of. However, once I come back down to earth and stop acting like a dickhead, I will welcome somebody to explain their viewpoint. I might not necessarily agree with what they’re saying; I will probably more than likely cement myself in my opinion even further and try to explain that to them instead – especially if their argument is something that seems to be quite closed or narrow-minded.

Usually, this leads to further discussions, or in my case, arguments, but although I’m more than aware that everybody is entitled to their opinion, I keep expecting them to have my opinion. So naturally, when they don’t, I can find myself in a heated debate / argument with them about it.That’s usually when I get to a point where I simply cannot talk any sense into them and walk away from the conversation.
