Agree to Disagree

725ccebfd7d620c4cd6f50221deeb3dbIt is okay to have different opinions and not to agree on certain subject matters, it is not however prudent or beneficial to anyone involved to put someone down for their beliefs.

I recently had to let go of a friend today because she refused to step down off her soap box built on belittlement and agree to disagree.  In our modern society of likes and followers, it is easy for us to become over inflated with a sense of self worth, but we must always find ways to embrace a personal humility; to realize we are not the expert at everything, to slay our inner Sheldon Coopers as it were.
It is like the old quote “Apologizing doesn’t always mean you are wrong, it just means that you value your relationships more than your ego.”  the same can be said for disagreements, sometimes it is best to find value over the friendship rather than defending our own egos.

Namaste
