Arguments are often viewed as a sign of negative disagreement. I used to think that arguing was a sign of an unhealthy relationship, or people’s stubbornness to see things from a different perspective. I did however, see arguments as a sign of people standing up for something they believe in, even though they might not know if they were wrong or right. People argue because they want other people to agree with them on their point of view. But I didn’t really see arguments as a necessity for a healthy community.
We learn from losing an argument, they shape the way we think. But as one of my classmates said, it would be weird if we all thought the same and didn’t disagree on anything. I do question though if the world would be easier though this way. Because most of our world history started from arguments. What are you thoughts?
And next time you are in an argument, if you are proved wrong, show respect and accept it, and take it as a learning opportunity.
