Expressing your own opinion
Sometimes I do not understand other human beings. Why do some people always tend to overpower others by emphasising their own opinion? Even when using so called ‘alternative facts’, which are, clearly and proven, not completely right.
When blogging, you meet so many different people everywhere on earth, but most of them in the blogging world, really are beautiful souls and wise, loving, caring human beings. All with their own, personal, mostly beautiful opinion. However, I do not always feel the same as they do. And that is completely normal, as I am me and they are them.
Both opinions are ok. Feelings never can be incorrectly. I want to respect others and respect other man’s feelings forever. Therefore, I started blogging. To make the world a beautiful place with beautiful opinions and many, many different points of view and perspectives. Enriched, united with love and respect.
People who add something to your story
As a result, on Social Media, or other places and platforms, you digitally meet each other and, after a while, you’ll find yourself sharing events and opinions together. I really love this. Especially when someone is adding something to my story, or is refining my words. Or giving me a complete other perspective that I can use to improve my way of thinking. I adore those contacts. Thank you!
However, it might occur the one you are trying to connect and share with, clearly is not able to read and to ‘listen’ to you. Sometimes it looks like people are reading a complete different story then the story I originally wrote. Sometimes it is my fault, by being to woolly. I know that I can be woolly and I try to improve my precision.
But those misunderstandings…
But most of the times everyone understands my words, but just one person is placing the words completely out of context and suddenly I am in the middle of a conversation in which someone else is using his own experiences against me. In a complete improper or misconceived way. Then someone keeps on telling his story repeatedly from his own perspective ‘I know I am right, and I know that you are not right because….’ completed with a complete out of context personal experience used by kind of example to emphasise his vision. Which, for him, is reality, what I completely understand and accept.
But, and that is really a disappointment to me….not everyone is able to accept a different point of view and keeps on pushing and pulling you. Some people only are nice to you when you agree with them and lifting them up. But they become painful, injurious or offensive or even almost hateful in case your opinion turns out to be slightly different from theirs.
Sometimes it hurts
I want to stress that my own feelings are just mine. I try to open up my heart and I try to use the tools that I have to make the world a place where it is possible to share your own opinion without being condemned by others.
Mostly I keep on living and giving them their own frustration back or I simply do not react. I don’t want to be served with another man’s negative emotions any more.
I keep it outside my life. It is not mine, it is theirs
My opinion is just mine. Sometimes I am wrong. And in that case, I will bend my head and concede my fault. But sometimes it is just about feelings. Feelings never can be wrong. Me, you, we might misinterpret what someone is telling us, but our feelings are just right. They are there and they are telling us something about ourselves.
In the meantime, I would be happy to hear how you are coping with people who are offensive, injurious or even nasty on your blog and on other platforms, because they just have another opinion than you have. I would be happy to hear. So I can learn and grow. Thank you so much for reading.
