    Let's Agree to Disagee?

    I want to stay friends with everyone. So, I often have the mantra of, "Let's agree to disagree." It's my way of saying, "You're not going to agree with me and I'm not going to agree with you. So, lets put it behind us and have fun in being friends. Okay?"...

    Okay, So That Is Not Always Possible, But...

    I'd like it if we could all get along, no matter what our differences are, but let's be realistic, here. There is no possible way that any person can get along with eevery single (other) person out there, at all times! We all have our breaking point. However, I just feel we...

    Please Be Civil

    No name-calling, no deliberate below-the-belt hits, and please don't bring up past issues that aren't relevant here. If you can refrain from raising your voice, please do so. Even if we can't agree, I want to at least walk away friends.

    Calm Logical Debates / Discussions

    When there is a difference of opinion, it is usually best to have a calm, logical discussion on the subject. :-)

    Disagreement is merely a conflict of interests.

    No two are fully alike. Respect different opinions. You can learn from them.

    we need more of it. There is a reason for our point of view. Everyone has had their own unique life experiences. Even if we don't see eye to eye...we can even learn from disagreements. See things in a way we hadn't considered before. Part of our humanity is respecting each others...

    We Are Not All the Same

        “I feel there are two people inside me - me and my intuition. If I go against her, she'll screw me every time, and if I follow her, we get along quite nicely.” ~ Kim Basinger   “The capacity for getting along with our neighbor depends to...

    A Simple Rule

    If you disagree with me and/or my opinions, tell me my reasoning or arguments are flawed or stupid, and present evidence to show everyone why. This is what is known as debate and discussion. You can tell me that my views are flawed or stupid, but don't tell me that I'M ...

    Religion, politics, common sense habits,

    I may not agree with you, nor believe that certain institutions are worth a damn (politics, any sort of religion when someone's beliefs are forced into a mould) BUT a lot of the time I see where your opinioncame from, I can see the logic and meet with you on points that may...

    It Takes Patience But Its All We Have

    I really believe that getting along when we disagree is one of the most important things an individual, a family and a society can learn. I find it a real challenge because I'm a passionate, thinking person who has strong opinions and love letting eveyrone know what they...

    Truth Wins All

    I would much rather get along with everyone, although it doesn't happen.  Arguments will happen; and I don't really mind them because they get out frustration and stress.  What I DON'T like are the people who dig into things that have nothing to do with the conversation...

    It Is Ok to Disagree, But You Better Have a Case :)

    I enjoy going into a healthy debate as long as the person in front of me is reasonable and logical. I go nuts  if he or she can't argue his/her case. I wish I wasn't that way, it makes me lose it a lot, which I think is harming my career.
