On Perspective

Happy New Year!!! 🥳💜🎉

Dear reader, I want to say thank you from the depths of my heart. I hadn’t published in 7 months and when I came back, I was excited but really nervous. Thank you for welcoming me back like I wasn’t absent and thank you for sticking with me. I can’t wait to do this year with you.

You’re manifesting everything you desire this year, you know that right?


On Persepective

People can be quick to call someone an idiot because the person has a different opinion than theirs. They forget that people see things differently and just because a person’s perspective doesn’t align with theirs, it doesn’t make them wrong.

Some things are black and white to some people while others see those things in patches or in different shades of grey. I mean, a coin has two sides but what about the edges? Are they not part of the coin too?

What I’m saying is that we should try to accommodate people’s points of view. There are times when what is wrong is wrong and when what is right is right – no dispute there but there are other times when you’re required to be a walking confession booth, where you just listen without judging.

Allow people to show you how they see things. You don’t necessarily have to agree with what they’ve said but the fact that you’ve listened to them shows that you respect them. Not everyone conventionally sees things and it’s fine. If you must disagree, do so respectfully.

So, let’s kill the idea that there’s only one way to look at things. More often than not, it’s not true. Be open to other people’s opinions, without allowing them to influence you if you don’t want to be influenced and who knows, you may learn a thing or two.

Love,

‘Ruona ❤️

  1. Well, Thank you for coming back, 2022 so far has shown me shege 😂😂😂, I know it’ll be better sha, from this week I decree and declare enjoyment in my life, the seeing things from different views is valid, I also agree that they’re respectful way to disagree with pesin, but when I see and understand your view on something and you don’t see my own that’s when I start becoming uncivilized and unleash my inner weyrey 😂.

  2. The first 10 days has been a roller coaster of crazy emotions, domestic accidents and just frustration but I know it’s not going to keep going that way.

    “ …a coin has two sides, but what about the edges? Are they not part of the coin too?

    Of course we should respect other people’s perspectives especially when we don’t agree with them. They will always be exceptions I believe! Some people have to be educated on their perspectives and others jailed 😁

    Be respectful always ✌🏽

    You are doing a nice job Ruona! I receive grace to go about my blog writing too 😁🙈🤣

  3. So far 2022 is promising alot and to be alot. Last few days has been pretty much decisive ones.
    Agreeing with a person’s perspective irrespective of what you think or feel should be a courtesy. Everyone’s entitled to their own opinion and perspective.
    I agree without a doubt that there are respectful ways to disagree with someone’s view.
    My favorite part of this post would be, “I mean, a coin has two sides but what about the edges? Are they not part of the coin too?”
    Seems like you have a knack for never-ending argumentative theories.

  4. My last 10 days has been work filled already.
    Here’s my favorite part of this blog post ‘I mean, a coin has two sides but what about the edges? Are they not part of the coin too?’
    I agree other’s opinion needs to be respected because it shows one isn’t just civil but also educated to respect the next person’s view on any matter.
    Yes there are respectable ways to disagree and one of such is ensuring you’ve listened to the other person and then they listen to you without increasing the tone of the conversation.

    Listening to another’s opinion is one of the bedrock of the legal practice even in the Bible God gave the devil, Adam and Eve turns to speak and he weighed their statements before unleashing judgment.

    Have a nice day ahead Ruo, beautiful piece.

  6. Well, we have to respect other people’s opinions cuz we definitely don’t know it all. We’re different people and will surely see things differently and it’s okay. Because I don’t agree with something doesn’t make it wrong and because I do doesn’t make it right.

  7. I made many mistakes the first few days but they can’t restart the year because of me 😂
    “We should try to accommodate other people’s opinion”. There are respectful ways to disagree with people, I cross my boundaries sometimes but I’m working on it.

    1. You are doing fine (I’m typing with a laptop and I cant use my purple heart emoji. Sigh).
      These things happen and it’s how we behave in the coming days that matter because we cannot change the past.

    1. Yes, they don’t allow for peace but if a person doesn’t discourage those opinions respectfully, they may do more harm than good.

      You don’t have to agree with people’s opinions but if you want them to see things your way, you should be wise about it.

  8. The last 10 days have been a bit rough, having to do documentation again after this NYSC relocation n all.
    Yes Ro, it is very important for one to respect other people’s opinions. That is why even when I strongly disagree with someone, I don’t tell them that they’re wrong, instead I use the statement ” I beg to differ “.

  9. Disagreeing to a person’s point of view is no disrespect. My opinion though. It is good you state your objection so the person can learn or see reasons with you.

    1. I didn’t say disagreeing with a person is disrespectful. I emphasized that the disrespect comes from how you disagree.

      There are many ways to object to a person’s opinion without doing so disrespectfully.
