There Is No Right or Wrong

There are times when we like to think that we're right and someone else is wrong. But there are never absolutes when people DISAGREE. Sometimes we like to convince ourselves there are, but that's wrong in itself. No viewpoint is without scrutiny, question, or challenge. In fact, all viewpoints are exactly that of where someone sits in terms of life experience and knowledge. And we all come from different experiences, backgrounds, and beliefs.

Holding to the conclusion that your viewpoint is right and someone else's is wrong is a missed opportunity to expand your horizons and see an issue from a different angle. In short, it's a missed opportunity to learn, and to understand, and a missed opportunity to find common ground. This is just my viewing and observation of what so called win win situation :)

So, we can let go of any stubborn hold you have of right and wrong viewpoints, and accept them for what they are simply a perspective form which someone has traveled so far in life.
