- Opinions aren’t facts.
- Everyone has them.
- If you share an opinion, you have invited the listener to share his/hers.
- If you want a listener to respect your opinion, then the you must respect your listener’s right to have his/hers, whether or not you agree with it.
You may feel strongly that a person’s opinion is provably wrong–in the realm of fact rather than opinion. That still doesn’t grant license to be disrespectful, whether or not s/he wants to change.
It’s never wrong to be kind and considerate.
In my opinion.
