Why it is okay to agree to disagree

Sometimes we get stuck in an endless argument because neither side will cave because they are so sure “they” are right. But the key to letting go of that is to agree to disagree. You can argue a point with someone unless you get dragon breath and blow fire but it won’t change their mind.

However, we need to learn that are just times when we are NOT going to agree on something and make that leap to say, “Ok, let’s just agree to disagree. it doesn’t mean either party was right or wrong just that we cannot come to the same agreeable conclusion.

We just have a difference of opinion that can’t not should be forced on the other person because then it really is a type of bullying and they will end up just getting agitated anyway. So today, if you find yourself in that position. Just DO it. Agree to disagree. And then be happy.

  1. A friend and I were talking about this recently, and for two people of equal standing this is good advice, but when you find yourself in this type of disagreement with someone in a position of authority, if they offer the “agree to disagree” option it really comes of more as shutting down a conversation that they don’t feel like having.

    Just a wrinkle in the issue that we have been discussing lately.
