  • Let's Agree to Disagree

    By Gloria

    Sitting with an acquaintance recently, this line came up over and over again. My friend was convinced of his point of view, and certainly I was of mine.

    Who is right and who is wrong? There can’t be a right or a wrong. He was speaking with great conviction about his beliefs, just as I was sharing what I thought was right and true from my beliefs. In an attempt to salvage some connection, we kept coming back to , “let’s agree to disagree.”

    There are times when you can sit with this old standby to keep the peace but it doesn’t always work.

    With so much disagreement how can you experience peace? You can only discount what you feel and what you believe to a point.

    No simple answers here. We see the world not as it is but as we are.

    My reality is only my reality. My friend’s reality is his.

    Peace is not possible with so much internal discord. Sometimes we have to wish others well and move on.

    At the end of the day you have to be able to live with yourself.

    If you’re constantly compromising your beliefs, there is no peace.
