Everybody has an opinion on something. Earlier people never expressed their opinion unless they were asked about it, since there was no particular medium available for everyone. Thanks to the advent of the Social media, these days it is easier for people to express their thoughts and make it known to the world. Well there is nothing to blame about here. People have a right to express their opinion(or that is what I think).
But the problem is when people give their opinion about something and others try to justify why a particular person’s opinion was wrong.
For instance let’s say Michael reads a book and he decides to review it in his blog. He would naturally write about how he felt the story was and whether the book was worth reading. That is fine. Let’s say Michael gives a positive review for the book, but another guy Lincoln did not like the book and has a different opinion. Upon reading Michael’s blog, if he expresses his opinion and leaves, that is fine. But when he gets to the task of arguing with Michael with the sole aim of trying to point out that he was wrong, that’s when things take a bad turn.
This is what happens in most of the cases. Be it a book or a movie or a cricket match. Some people are so arrogant and stubborn that they wouldn’t want to hear someone speak one word against them. If ever someone happens to speak, they start arguing very badly and of course, divert to other things and make a big issue of nothing, or worse blog about it, not justifying why they are right, but trying to prove why the other person was wrong about something.
One thing people forget is, just as how we are entitled to have an opinion, so do others. Not everyone is same and naturally not everything would go well with everyone. There is bound to be a difference of opinion. No one would ask you to agree with what the general crowd says. We have our right to agree and to disagree. But that doesn’t necessarily mean we have to prove others wrong and go out of our way to do that. Each one has their own perspective and they might actually be right in their own way.
So, to all those people who take it upon themselves to prove why others are wrong, do not waste your time. Someone up above would know how and when to teach them!
