You know when you see a post you disagree with, the more it means to you the heavier the urge to reply?
Well, lately I've crossed some kind of border.. When I really disagree with a post, and it's something like how the universe is supposed to work or
any kind of "I have the truth" post, I don't even try anymore. What's the use of disagreeing with someone when the only thing you're doing is
posting your opinion? If there's a fundamental difference between the opinions, isn't it useless to try to convince the other?
What are the chances of someone changing their frame of reference just because they read your post?
Honestly I don't want those questions answered
but I'm struggling with what to do here.
Do I lower my standards when reading other's posts, try to become less of a critical thinker? That feels like cognitive treachery. And I don't think
it's possible either..
Do I stop posting when I disagree? I'd have to avoid reading posts I disagree with, otherwise I'd have to find some way to cope with disagreeing
with heaps of posts without saying a thing.. The latter isn't realistic, so basically it would strip me from the chance to be open minded, or to open
other's minds.. I guess..
I think you guys have all been through the same stuff and was wondering how you deal with it. I'm sure you guys are more mature about this than me..
I'm mentally stubborned
Hey, where did my anger go.. Oh well.
Now, share your coping methods! Whether you disagree with me, or not! ;D
