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.
