How To Handle Someone With Opposite Opinions

We all have different opinions, values and thinking styles. There are times that we agree with others’ opinion. But sometimes discussing your own opinions can lead to an argument.

There is a difference between disagreeing with a point and justifying yourself with facts. Most of us don’t want to disrespect someone. So they prefer productive discussions.

The arguments become strong and valid when it contains facts and figures. Your simple opinion is useless when other people don’t agree with it. But the problem is that you can’t remember the facts in the middle of the argument.

Your opinion is justified only if you are able to explain through logic only. And you have to give logical reasons to control the argument so you can win it. Try to give information that supports you and has the reason for your disagreement.

Find your Inner Peace

  • Don’t Take Anything Personally
    When you are in a professional setting, you must avoid the risk of getting personal with the other person. There are many conflicts, and everybody does have their own opinions. You should praise the opinion of other people. But never degrade the other person. Even in a random argument, if you take other person opinions personal, this might affect your relationship with them. So avoid taking things personally and try to give your ideas effectively.
  • Recognize The Good
    If you have a disagreement with any person, try to find the best thing in that argument. You can find something helpful and you can take out that point and add it in your ideas and discuss it with them again. At that time you can successfully agree with them with your opinion. During an argument, the opposite person can give you an idea or a lesson. That you can use in your own justifications.
  • Listen Calmly And Be Polite
    When we have a disagreement, we stop listening to the opponent’s opinions. And try to win the argument by not listening. Even we start speaking in the middle of someone’s opinion rather than listen to them carefully.
    And this worsens the situation, you just have to listen to each other to end the argument with peace. Its best to listen to the person calmly, before giving your own opinion. Trust me this way will be the best way to handle someone with an opposite opinion.

    When you are polite during a conversation, you tend to win an argument by just being polite and staying calm. Try to use “I” in your sentences to keep the conversations smooth and effective.
  • Avoid More Arguments
    when you know that you are right and on point. so you don’t need to prove yourself. You can’t prove yourself all the time, and a time comes when you are tired and exhausted.

    The discussion will be useless, and you are wasting time with the wrong person. the best solution for avoiding an argument is to change the topic of discussion.
    If your conversations turn in to a personal fight, by making offensive statements. you might worsen the situation. You just have to away from such things. Everyone has limits, and when someone tries to cross that limts, thats the sign that you need to stop.

A New Entry

The Wrong person
Chapter 2: A New Entry

The story will explain a new entry of a character. This new entry will either be the hero or the villain of the story. Read further to know about him.
If someone hasn’t read the first chapter, here it is:

After bumping into a guy and simply not even getting a chance to find out his name. I left every thought behind and went into the admission office. Since it was my first day, I was super excited and nervous at the same time. After all the paperwork, finally, I got my admission into the best fashion designing college.

Samantha came to me as soon as i came out the admission office. After hearing about my admission, she planned to celebrate it with all her friends. I didnt like the idea of celebrating it with such a big social circle. But seeing samanth’s happiness, I tried to be okay with the idea. She wanted me to fit in here. Well I think she is right. The party was going to be held in the near by Olivers club. Me and Samantha headed home to get dressed for the party.

I really didnt like interacting with people, but yet I knew everything about fashion. I decided to wear a sleeveless royal blue maxi with black heels. Curled my hair and applied red lipstick. And I was completely ready within an hour. Unlike samantha who took atleast 2 hours to get ready. I decided to call james. We hadnt talk since the last time we met on the airport. Calling james seemed exciting at the start but as soon as the number kept on ringing. My heart started pumping faster. Well he didnt pick up, and I was shocked.

There had never been a single time that james hadnt picked up my phone. You know all of sudden when an environment changes. You think that people change with time too. In most cases they do. But you need to think positive to enjoy life better. Here james didnt pick my call up, it made me so angry that i threw my phone away. And went with samantha to the party.

I was angry about him not texting me, or even messaging me where he was. I thought he would be more excited to talk to me. But things didn’t seem that way. The party was a loud one for sure. There were like so many people in Samantha’s social circle. And I hardly knew anyone. Looking around everywhere, I spotted him. The guy I bumped into in the morning and didn’t even get a chance to talk to.

The time I looked at him, our eyes just met all of a sudden. He recognised me and I recognized him. He came to me and we started talking. Well, he asked me if I wanted a drink. But I told him that I didnt drink at all. Thats when he insisted on drinking. He thought it was a party and i should enjoy like others are. After a couple of talks and lots of insisting. I tried a glass of wine. Well, lets say I think i was so angry at james that i deicded that it was best to just drink to forget things.

In no time, I kept on drinking and drinking. That i zoned out. I lost control over my senses. I had drank so much that I didnt know where i was. The next moment I knew it, I was at my flat. And he was sitting on the chair near my bed.

The Wrong Person

Chapter 1: A New Beginning

The short story has a few chapters, yes it will be a love story but along with this, you will learn certain life lessons too. The story has been named “The Wrong Person”. Here you will know after a few chapters who the wrong person really is. Till then keep reading guys!

Holding your hand in mine, while feeling the cold breeze. The only thing I craved for at this moment was your warmth. I could feel your heartbeat while walking with you. Every moment with you was like a dream. Walking on the beach and hearing the waves with him was something I think every girl of my age wished for. We sat down near the water, just to spend a couple of more moments together. We kept looking into each other’s eyes. It was like we had to say something but we didn’t have words to say it. 

He held me close into his arms. Where my head was on his chest. And I could hear his heartbeat. His heartbeat was raising fast. His hands were shivering with cold. That’s when I held his hands in mine. I could feel him hugging me against his chest. It was like these moments were for just a while. They were going to end soon but we wanted to spend these moments being close to each other.  

I kept looking at him, just to hear if he was ready to talk about something. But he wasn’t. He looked at me with a cute smile and then took me back into an even tighter hug. The only thing I wanted right now was to live in this moment without thinking about anything else. But the night had to come to an end sooner or later.

It was the time to part ways for our better future. Since I was into fashion, I planned on going to USA to pursue my career. While he was more into business, His family was rich and more into business. To expand his business he had to shift to France. Parting ways wasnt an easy thing to do right now.

But I believe that to pursue your dreams you need to take some difficult decisions!. Thats what life is all about. And thats what me and jason decided to do. We were leaving on the same day so that it would be easy to part ways.

It was almost midnight, when we realised that it was time to leave for the airport. We held each other tight for the very last time. Yes we were sad and heartbroken. But we were satisfied that atleast we were going away from each other for a better future.

Letting go of each other at the airport was tough, I kept on looking behind just to see him before its time to depart. The flight was a long one i could say. Reached USA around 12 am. This is when I stepped into a new beginning of my life. USA was so beautiful, the palm trees and big buildings. The people around me and everything was amazing.

A close friend of mine samantha, came to pick me up from the airport. I was going to live with her until i didnt find a place of my own. Samantha has been my childhood friend. We both decided to pursue fashion designing together. And here we are. In our new apartment, It was a really small place with one room and a big lounge. But it was super close to our college at least.

The next day, was the first day of college admissions. Samantha went along with me for the admissions. But as soon as we reached their, she found a few of her old friends. I didnt want to disturb her. And i simply didnt want to interact with these people either. I was a shy person and i wasnt a social freak either. I continued on walking towards the admission office. When I bumped into a guy and dropped my files too. Well he helped me with picking up my stuff. And asked me whether I was new. I told him I was a new student here and it was my first day. He helped me with the admissions and everything.

But you know what we talked so much and i hardly got time to ask his name even. You all might want to know more about the guy that would be in the other chapter.whether this guy is the wrong person or not. But Im sure you all will love this life story. It will be all about what an influence a wrong person brings in your life.
